How To Make Puff Puff

If you’ve never tried an African Puff Puff before then you are in for an absolute treat!  They are gorgeously crispy on the outside, fluffy and delicate on the inside, and taste amazing. They are just the most perfect little fried balls of deliciousness.

Puff Puffs are one of the most popular West African snacks and you can find them just about anywhere in Nigeria, Cameroon, and Ghana (though here they are called Bofort).  You can pick up a puff puff readily from street vendors, and they are also household favourites too.  You’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t serve up some Puff Puff when you visit. 

They’re most often either eaten as a snack or as a starter, but work equally well on the side of most meals.  I always have to have some of my African Puff Puffs whenever I make my Jamaican Rice and Peas or my Hearty Beef and Bean Casserole.
