  1. Asalam aleykum sister Tammy, I was wondering if I can use baking powder instead of yeast? Will the end result be the same?

    Thank you very much sister Tammy

  2. wa alaikum salam

    I am sorry but I don't know! Try it and let me know.

  3. Assalamu alaikum uhkti, just loving your recipes marshaallaha.
    I tried this with baking powder and it came out ok.

  5. Asalamu Alaikum sister,

    I just tried to make these and I had a couple of problems with it. Maybe you can tell me what I did wrong and if you had the same problem.

    First of all, the dough was very sticky and it was difficult getting it off the spoon when I was trying to drop them in the fryer. Should I be adding more water or is that normal? Also, I fried it at about 160 degrees tempreture and it cooked well on the outside but not so much in the inside...the dough was kind of uncooked in the middle.

    Have you tried this recipe yet? If so, how did it turn out for you?
