A vetkoek is made from flour, salt and yeast. The dough is then rolled into a ball, deep fried and filled with something. It is normally eaten with butter, filled with jam or a savory filling. If you still don't know what vetkoek is, it is basically deep-fried bread that is shaped like a hamburger bun.
In a traditional South African braai, vetkoek may be served alongside boerewors, which is a South African sausage. Wash everything well before use. The normal food preparation hygiene rules apply.
Step 1: A typical recipe for vetkoek
7 Cups of all purpose Flour
2 teaspoons of Salt
2 tablespoons of Sugar
1 packet Yeast
Some lukewarm water
Some (+/- 500 ml) of Cooking oil for frying the dough afterwards
You are further going to need:
Sauce/Frying pan or Pot
Dish lined with some absorbent paper to put the vetkoek in
Perforated ladle or spoon for placing the dough in the boiling oil and lifting the vetkoek out.
You could just buy ready made bread dough at your convenience centre and leave the making of the dough for another day.
Remember that you also need to decide what you are going to put on the vetkoek afterwards. Butter, jam, syrup, savory or curry mince, etc. In this case we are going to do a sweet filling and a savory one.
