Delicious vetkoek made with 2-ingredient dough. The easiest vetkoek you will ever make.
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: South African
Flat-bladed knife or spatula
Frying pan or Wok
1cupself-raising flour(140 g)
1cupGreek yoghurt(240 ml)
2cupssunflower or canola oilfor frying
Measure the flour into a mixing bowl
Add the Greek yoghurt and salt (optional)
Mix with a flat-bladed knife until the Greek yoghurt is combined with the flour
Press together with your hands until the mixture forms a soft ball. Add more flour a tablespoon at a time if necessary.
Tip onto a floured surface and divide into 6 equally sized balls.
Flatten each ball to approximately 1/2 cm thickness
Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan until a small piece of dough dropped into the oil turns brown in about 15 seconds.
Carefully lower the flattened vetkoek into the oil, and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
Drain on paper towel, then serve.
To make a larger batch - just double the quantities of the flour and Greek yoghurt, but don't double the salt or the vetkoek will be too salty.If the mixture is too sticky just add extra flour 1 tablespoon at a time, until it becomes manageable.When frying - don't allow the oil to become too hot or the vetkoek may burn on the outside, but still be raw on the inside. If the oil seems to be getting too hot, adjust the temperature down slightly.The calories have been calculated excluding the oil used for frying as not all the oil will be absorbed.
