In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients, oil and water (a little at a time) and mix until you have made a dough.

Cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes. Divide the dough into 6 – 8 balls and flatten. Heat a pan with enough oil to deep-fry the flattened dough.

Fry in batches of 3 at a time; turn them over once golden brown and puffed. once cooked, place on paper towels to soak up excess oil.
