Jamaican Festival

cool runnings

 Serves: 4 |  Preparation time: 25 minutes |  Cooking time: 20 minutes


1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.

2. In a separate small bowl, mix together the water, coconut milk, and melted butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until a dough forms.

3. Knead the dough for a few minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into small balls, about the size of a golf ball and roll them out into long oval shapes.

4. Heat a deep pot or deep fryer with enough oil to cover the festival. Once the oil is hot, carefully place a few of the dough balls into the oil and fry until they are golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. 

5. Remove the festival from the oil and drain on a paper towel. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.

6. Serve the Jamaican festival dumplings hot and enjoy!
