KAKA PIZON (PIgeon-Shit in Madagascar, more commonly known to Durbanites as Rat-shit)

2 cups of all-purpose flour,
1/4 cup of oil (peanut is best, but if you can't get it, sunflower is ok)
1 egg,
3/4 tsp salt,
1 tsp chili powder
1 cup roast peanuts

fresh yeast (20 grams)
1/4 cup warm water,
2 tsp sugar

1 cup roast peanuts or cashew-nuts


Mix the yeast, sugar and water in bowl and let it rest in a warm place until foamy.

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients except the nuts.
Knead lightly to combine, then cover with a damp cloth and let sit for 30 minutes to rise.

On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough as thin as possible. Cut into spaghetti-thin strips (or as thin as possible) then into 3 to 5 cm fragments.

Deep fry in hot oil until golden and crisp. Drain on paper towels.
When it is cool, sprinkle with more chili (if you are brave!) and add the roast peanuts or cashew.

Cool your burny tongue and lips with a suitable cold beverage.
