What is puff puff and how it is made ? 

Puff puff also known as beignet in french are like

“mini round doughnuts “if you will like to call it this way ; are made out of a mixture of plain flour, yeast which could be dry active or the powder version, sugar, pinch of salt and warm water. The secret to having good puff puff depends on the quality and type of yeast you use. 

I am all about simplicity when it comes to cooking  and try to make sure that every video or script I put out there can be replicated. I believe everyone can make this snack and with some beans on  the side; that’s a complete meal right there 👌.
