    1. In a large bowl measure the flour, then add salt. Gradually add enough cold water to make a soft dough, mix through with a wooden spoon, but don't over mix.
    2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and push or roll dough out to 1 1/2 cm thickness.
    3. Cut into the desired size, then place each piece into the preheated hot oil and fry til golden on both sides and double the size.


    If you over mix, this will cause them to become stiff and flat.

    Bubbles, serve with soup or a hearty stew omm nomm nomm or on its own with butter and golden syrup or jam. Oil should be hot enough that when the dough hits the oil it sizzles, say a medium high heat.  -  28 Apr 2013


    Any suggestions regarding what to serve this with? I am interested to try but not sure how to present them. And how hot should the oil be?  -  04 Feb 2013
