Mandazi (Mahamri) na Chai (Mandazi & Chai). Taste this delicious perfectly soft Mandazi recipe when making your next mandazi and you’ll love it to bits. This is an all time favourite for all kids, children and adults.  Everyone loves this with their tea or a snack such as Barazi (Lentils cooked in coconut sauce).

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 cup milk or 1/2 cup coconut milk
2 Tbsp. butter or Margarine
2 cups All purpose white flour
2 tsp. baking powder (or 1 1/2 tsp yeast)

1.      Mix all the ingredients together, adding more flour if necessary.
2.     The dough should be soft and pliable (like buns), but not sticky.
3.    Roll the dough on a lightly floured board until it is about 1/4 inch think.
4.    Cut into triangles, diamonds or rounds at the size u want.
5.     Fry in medium hot oil on both sides till golden brown and remove.
6.  If you are using yeast instead of baking powder - Keep the dough covered and let it rise double in size and rebeat it and then roll the mandazi and fry.  If Baking powder just keep for few min and roll them.

I want to curl up here and enjoy my leisure time with a book and cup of hot chocolate /coffee late and relax whilst the Sunshine warms me and the breeze plays through my hair.
