Ingredients list for the Awamat recipe


1. How to make the Awamat recipe: In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.

2. Add the water slowly to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.

3. Turn the Awamat dough out onto a floured surface and knead thoroughly for 5 to 7 minutes. The dough should be shiny, soft, and a little sticky to your fingers.

4. Scoop out a spoonful of dough with a spoon and form ball shapes with your palms. Arrange the balls on a plate.

5. In a large saute pan, add enough oil so that the dough will be deep-fried. Once the oil is hot, progressively place the dough balls into the oil, a few at a time. The doughnut balls will rise to the surface of the oil when cooked. The Awamat should have a nice golden brown color.

6. Remove the doughnuts balls from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a plate covered with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Drizzle the Awamat balls with simple syrup and toss to coat. Serve the Awamat immediately. Enjoy!

Tips for the Awamat recipe

  • You can drizzle the doughnut balls with honey instead of simple syrup.
  • Nothing prevents you to sprinkle a little cinnamon on top of the Awamat.
  • If you have time, use the “double fry” method: dip the awamat balls in oil and deep fry only halfway, then remove them to a plate. Proceed with deep-frying the whole batch halfway, then make a second of frying. This ensures nice, even crispy balls with a wonderful color.

How to store the awamat

Keep the awamat in a shallow plate for up to 2 days, covered with a napkin. But we bet, these delicious donut balls won’t last that long!
