Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
340g tapioca starch, (see glossary)
2 teaspoons salt
80ml milk
80ml oil, plus extra for deep frying
1 egg, lightly beaten

Method

  1. Combine the tapioca starch and salt in a large heatproof bowl and set aside.
  2. Bring the milk, oil and 80 ml water to the boil in a small saucepan. Pour the milk mixture into the tapioca mixture, stirring constantly until smooth. As the mixture cools, you may need to use your hands to combine the ingredients. Cool slightly, then mix in the egg using your hands.
  3. Heat the extra oil in a heavy-based saucepan to 190°C, or until a cube of bread dropped into the oil turns golden brown in 10 seconds. Using two spoons, scoop a ball of dough about the size of a ping-pong ball. Carefully drop the dough into the hot oil and cook in batches for 7–8 minutes per batch, or until puffed and deep golden. Remove the biscuits with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Serve warm.
