Puff puff is a popular West African street snack made from simple ingredients. Flour, sugar, and yeast are combined to make a dough which is then deep-fried. This snack is loved by adults and kids alike. In recent years, puff-puff has moved from being just street food to being enjoyed at parties as a part of “Small chops” platters alongside Buns.
