Sata Andagi (Okinawan Doughnuts)

Andagi is an Okinawan deep fried doughnut. It is also known as "sata andagi." Andagi is the Okinawan term for all deep fried dishes, anda is Okinawan for oil. Although Okinawans in Hawaii use the term andagi only to refer to sata andagi, savory as well as sweet deep fried foods are all properly called andagi.


4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 large eggs, slightly beaten
Vegetable oil, for deep frying


Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Make a well in center
Combine milk, oil and vanilla in a measuring cup, then add enough water to make 1 cup of liquid. Add eggs. Pour into well the dry ingredients.
Mix by hand until barely moist. Preheat oil to 350 degrees then lower to 330 degree F.

Drop dough by hand, or use a large spoon or ice cream scoop. Fry until golden, about 8 minutes. Andagi is done when a skewer or chopstick poked into the center comes out clean.
Drain on paper towels.
