Pa Thong Ko


3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup water
1 tsp baking ammonia (or substitute baking powder)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil


Mix baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add water and stir well. Add this mixture to the all purpose flour, then stir lightly (don't over-stir). Add vegetable oil then mix well until well combined. Cover with thin fabric such as a kitchen towel se aside for 4 hours at room temperature.

Heat oil in a wok or frying pan. Sprinkle, lightly, flour over work surface. Place about a hand-full of dough on work surface. Shape it into a long shape, press or roll it out to about one half inch thick. Cut it to small pieces (about 3 inches long); dab a bit of water in the middle of each piece. Press two pieces together at center; drop to hot oil and fry it until it rises and is golden brown in color.

Recipe Notes:

Deep-fried dough stick is called Pa Thong Ko in Thailand. In the morning you can easily find them being made by street vendors and they're very inexpensive.
