      Hi Artklub, to the best of my knowledge fried flour is food. It is not poison.

    I follow this same process and d puff puff just sits @ d bottom of the pot and won’t float like yours , I had to use a perforated spoon to scoop it up……..why do I have dis result

      Hi Cherry, I think your oil didn’t get hot enough before you put the batter in. When the oil isn’t hot enough the puff puff doesn’t float. It helps to test the oil first with one scoop of batter to see if it will float. If it doesn’t float, increase the heat and wait a few more minutes before frying the rest of the batter. Hope this helps.
