Honey and Chilli Potato Koeksusters

Honey and chilli potato koeksusters


1 tablespoon oil
2 spring onions (chopped)
1 tablespoon garlic paste
1 red pepper (chopped)
4 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
Bring a saucepan to a moderate heat. Add the oil, spring
onions and red pepper, and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the
honey, garlic paste, sweet chilli sauce and soy sauce. Cook on
a low heat for 10 minutes.


500g cake flour
150g potato purée
25ml baking powder
20ml butter
1 large egg
220ml water
2 pinches of salt
1 extra egg for brushing
Vegetable oil for deep frying

Add salt and butter to cake flour, and mix through with your fingertips. Add the potato and mix through well so that the flour is crumbly. Add the egg and water, and knead until the dough is nice and smooth. Rest for 15 minutes. Roll the dough into long strings of about 30cm. Cut them in half and fold the one point over the other to form the koeksusters. Whisk up the extra egg and brush over the dough. Rest for 5 minutes and then deep-fry at 160°C for 15 minutes. Dip into the syrup and drain.
