1 teaspoon Nutmeg

Oil for deep-frying

Set the mixture in a warm area and let it rise and double in size -approximately 1- 2 hours

In a large saucepan, pour vegetable oil, until it is at least 3 inches (or about 5 centimetres) high (too little will result in flatter balls), and place on medium heat until oil is 375 degrees.

The dough is going to be sticky so use your hands to grab a little bit of mixture at a time and drop in the oil or use a spoon to spoon up the batter, and another spoon or spatula to drop it in the oil, sort of in the shape of a ball. Do not overcrowd the pan. Do so in batch

Fry for a few minutes until the bottom side is golden brown.

Turn the ball over and fry for a few more minutes until the other side is golden brown.

Use a large spoon or something like that to take it out of the oil.
