Dabo Kolo (Little Fried Snacks)
They will look like flat peanuts, and are served as a snack or with cocktails; and like peanuts, once you start eating them you can't stop.
In a 1-quart bowl: Mix:
- 2 cups ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
- ½ t SALT
- 2 T SUGAR
- ½ t CAYENNE PEPPER
- ¼ cup OIL.
Knead together and add WATER, spoonful by spoonful, to form stiff dough. Knead dough for 5 minutes longer. Tear off a piece the size of a golf ball. Roll it out with palms of hands on a lightly floured board into a long strip 1/2 inch thick. Snip into 1/2-inch pieces with scissors.
Spread about a handful of the pieces on an ungreased 9-inch frying pan (or enough to cover bottom of pan). Cook over heat until uniformly light brown on all sides, stirring up once in a while as you go along.
Continue until all are light brown.
