Nepalese Sel Roti or the channel for your inner Jackson Pollock

Is there anything more satisfying than having something deep fried, crisp and sweet in the mornings?! Probably not. But there is one thing that is a balm to me, and thats the Nepalese doughnut called Sel Roti. Its super light, super crisp, and mildly sweet and more than that, its so much fun to make and shape. The more talented Nepalese makers of Sel Roti might call my skill in forming the doughnut like rings, amateurish. But I tend to channel my inner Jackson Pollock as I drop the banana, rice, cardamom and butter dough into bubbling hot oil. It’s purrrfect. If you feel your inner Jackson Pollock is calling out to you at breakfast for something deep fried, crisp and sweet, give this one a go. They say Sel Rotis lasts forever, but these won’t and you’d kick yourself for not doubling the quantities I’m going to be telling you.
