What is Prata Puffs
Prata Puffs are essentially fried doughnuts. They’re a traditional Singaporean dessert, and also a popular street snack. The texture of the puffs is fluffier than that of a doughnut, you can tell it’s not deep, fried because it’s not crunchy on the outside! It’s more like a sweetened ball of fried dough with a soft center.
Anything with chocolate smeared over it is delicious. But how about a pastry puff that looks magnificent, is properly heated, and is dripping with Nutella? The most luscious and crispy pastry may be found on your table thanks to our quick and simple recipe. It’s the perfect side dish for a brunch spread, a decadent breakfast, or an incredibly tasty complement to your afternoon tea or coffee break. You will save a ton of time by utilizing store, bought puff pastry without sacrificing any flavor. Although puff pastry is one of the hardest recipes in patisserie to perfect, if you’re determined to make the pastry yourself, we can only applaud you for it.
Gather your extremely short list of ingredients, commence cooking, and enjoy a chocolaty puff in only 35 minutes if, like many home chefs, you’re busy and in need of a delectable dessert in no time. These pastries are delicious as, is, but because it is nearly hard to limit oneself to one, they won’t stay on your table for very long. However, you may add some orange zest to the filling if you want a vibrant counterpoint to the delicious chocolate.
The ingredients are as follows:
- 1/2 cup all, purpose flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup Nutella (or any other chocolate hazelnut spread)
- 1 tsp baking powder
To make these puffs, you’ll need to mix together your dry ingredients first. You’ll want to stir together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl or large measuring cup. Then add the remaining wet ingredients including water, milk and vanilla extract, stir until combined!
- Take the milk powder and shake it well.
- Mix the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl.
- Add oil, milk powder and water to the dry ingredients. Mix until it forms into a dough ball without any lumps (about 2 minutes).
- Add 3/4 teaspoon of yeast to warm water and let it sit for 5 minutes or until frothy, then add this to your dough mixture along with 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds (optional). Knead with hands till smooth again (about 5 minutes). Cover with cling film and set aside for an hour or till doubled in size. If you’re using instant yeast instead of active dried yeast you can omit step 4 here as well as step 5 below (on active dried yeast).
- Divide into about 15 balls about 80 g each on a floured surface then roll each out into thin discs using a rolling pin so that they’re about 8 inches wide by 10 inches long , if you don’t have enough space on your counter top, use two baking trays instead! Brush each side lightly with oil before folding them in half lengthwise so that they look like little sandwiches now! Brush these tops lightly also before transferring them carefully onto lined baking trays one by one; cover loosely with clean kitchen towel/paper towel for 30 mins more until puffy but not risen too much anymore, this helps prevent them from opening up during cooking process later which we don’t want since otherwise they won’t be looking like proper Pratas anymore!
- Use a non, stick pan.
- The batter should be runny. It’s not a pancake batter, so you want it to spread out into thin layers and not be too thick.
- Pour the batter in a circular motion, starting from the center of your pan and moving outward until all of your pan is covered. Do not pour any excess on the edges of your pan—they will get too dark while baking!
The most important thing to remember is that you want to use a good quality cookie dough and Nutella. I find that there’s often a big difference between brands of chocolate chip cookie dough and Nutella, so try different ones until you find the one that works best for you. Also make sure to use really fresh butter and flour, as well as baking powder (not baking soda) when making these prata puff pastries!
Add-ins and Variations
Add-ins and variations can be made by adding nuts, chocolate chips or candy of your choice. You can also change the type of flour and baking powder to create a different texture.
