I had Mandazis in Zanzibar which I have not been able to replicate. It
was more like a deep-fried bread roll than a doughnut (texture was
meatier than a doughnut). Does anyone have a Zanzibari recipe? I have
not been able to find one on the internet.


Here's one from a cookbook we bought in Zan.
2 cups plain flour
5 tbsps sugar
1 cup cocnut milk
1 tsp coarsly ground cardamom
1 sachet yeast
oil for frying

Mix all ingredients with coconut milk and bind into a dough. Leave in
a warm place for 4-5 hours to rise. knead dough well and roll out to
1/2" thick, cut into triangles or required shapes and leave for
further 15 minutes. Deep fry in hot oil on medium heat to a deep tan
colour then drain on kitchen paper.

The trick may be experimenting with yeast and/or standing time, also
the type of oil will affect the flavour. I'd guess that corn oil is
probably used in Zanzibar.


If your biscuits are lonely, let them meet cake.

I`ve just had a look in a Lamu cookbook and see that, like the recipe
in the Congo cookbook, an egg is included in the recipe. This is added
with the milk. Also added in Lamu are a few saffron threads to colour
and flavour. The saffron is infused with a little warm water and added
during the rising process. As you say, corn or vegetable oil would be
used in the deep frying.
I`ve eaten Mandazi or Mahamri as they are called on the Coast, in both
Nairobi and Malindi. I couldn`t eat them now and ruin my low calorie
diet!! They are nice though!
Interesting feedback.

Fierce dog-- hot is moto!
You see large signs on big houses warning you of Mbwa Kali or Fierce
Dog. Kali can also be used with a "Pili Pili" meal. You will
probably find Chicken or Prawn Pili Pili in the African Cookbook.
Cheers,
Pat

I've got "abrasive, lurid, sharp, hot" for "kali", some of which might
describe me (again, I'm sure I shouldn't really comment!) and many
dogs out in the African sun. Much context based confusion seems to
arise from translating!!
I'm rather tempted to put up an "Abrasive Dog" warning on the garden
gate now...
