Nigerian Buns recipe

African Buns

These delicious African Buns are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I think a trial will definitely convince you. Though these Buns are deeply fried just like the Puff puff  but they do not absorb as much Oil as the Puff puff and the best part is, you can throw all the ingredients together and your Buns is ready in less than 30 minutes.
