TO MAKE SPIRAL SKIN

  4. Roll from the shorter end of the swiss roll to flatten dough. Slowly roll up from the shorter side to form a swiss roll.
  5. Let dough rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Put 1 Tbsp of filling in the centre.
  3. Brush the edge with water and fold into half. Press the edge together and seal it. This will give you a half moon shape.
  4. Pinch the edge of the puff with your thumb. Bring the back side forward and seal it with the front. Repeat the process. You should be able to get about 8-9 pleats.
  5. Heat oil in wok or deep fryer. Oil must be very hot before putting in the puff and enough to cover to the puff.
  6. Deep fry the puff on medium heat until golden brown.
