4 cups All-Purpose Flour 2 tsp Yeast

1 tsp Sugar

1 tsp Salt

Warm Water (as needed)

Vegetable Oil (for frying)


In a bowl, combine yeast, sugar, and warm water. Allow the yeast to activate and become frothy. In a separate large bowl, mix all-purpose flour and salt. Slowly add the activated yeast mixture to the flour, kneading to form a soft, pliable dough. Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place until it doubles in size. Divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball into a flat, round shape (about 6 inches in diameter). Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the Gurasa flatbreads until they puff up and turn golden brown on both sides. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.


Gurasa is best served warm and can be enjoyed with a variety of accompaniments such as stews, soups, or your favorite Nigerian dishes.
