This week, we would like to give you something fun for you to try! One of the children’s culinary favorites is a Tanzanian specialty called Mandazi. Mandazi are East African donuts, and we are going to tell you how to make them! If you get a chance to try out this recipe, we would love to know what you think!
You will need:
– 2 cups of warm water
– 4 tsp baking powder
– 4 cups of flour
– ½ cup of sugar
– 2 tablespoons of butter
– Oil for deep frying
To begin, mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl to form a dough.
|Using your hands is probably the easiest technique!|
Next, as demonstrated here by the beautiful Zawadi, roll out your fresh dough with a rolling pin.

Serve them hot or cold; both are delicious! Take a look at some of the children thoroughly enjoying their mandazi!
Please feel free to post a photo to our Facebook page of your own attempt at making mandazi. We would love to hear from you!
