F} Roll out each ball to a circle of about quarter of an inch thickness and cut into 4 quarters
G} Place mandazi pieces on a floured surface so they don’t stick

K} Repeat the same process with the remaining mandazi
L} Serve with gungo peas or any curry as main meal, or with hot or cold drink as breakfast or you can have them as snacks
