Pa Tong Go Recipe

Thai Style Chinese Crullers / Mini Fried Donut (Pa Tong Go)


Share This Recipe

These are small deep fried pieces of dough that are a bit like a cross between donuts and bread. They pair really well with soya milk, condensed milk or pandan dip. The donuts are very savoury so I think they would be great with anything sweet!

The recipe is quite simple to make, but you do need to let the dough rest for a few hours. This recipe should make enough for around 2 to 3 portions, and will take about half an hour to make, not including the resting time for the dough.

  • 125g all purpose flour
  • 80 ml water
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/8 teaspoon yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • frying oil

Cooking instructions


Step 1: Begin by adding 125g of all purpose flour to a bowl along with 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder and then mix together. Next, place a sieve over a mixing bowl, and filter the flour to remove any lumps.

Step 2: Now add 3/8 teaspoon of yeast to the mixing bowl and stir everything together. Push the flour mixture into a mountain shape, and make a crater in the middle.

Step 3: In a separate bowl mix 80ml of water with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 tbsp of sugar, and 1/2 tbsp of vegetable oil. Keep stirring until everything is mixed together thoroughly.

Step 4: Slowly spoon the water mixture into the flour while constantly stirring. Keep going until you have added in all of the liquid, and stir until you are left with a thick dough. Cover the bowl with some cling film, and let it rest for 1 hour.

Step 5: After 1 hour, turn the dough over, then re-cover and let it sit for another 1 hour. After the second hour, flip the dough over one final time and leave to rest for a further 3 hours.

Step 6: So after 3 hours, dust some flour over a flat surface, and roll the dough out into a thin sheet, then cut the dough into strips around 1 wide and 3 inches long. Use the end of a spoon to rub a little water into the middle of one of the strips, then stick another strip of dough on top. The water will hold the 2 pieces together. Repeat for all the pieces of dough until you are left with pairs.

Step 7: Heat some cooking oil on a medium heat, then deep fry the dough pairs. Use chopsticks to gently turn the dough over to ensure that it is fried on both sides. Keep frying until it is light brown and puffy. It should only take about 3 or 4 minutes to finish.

Step 8: Once the mini doughnuts are done cooking, set them aside on some paper towel to absorb any excess oil, then serve with some soya milk, condensed milk, or some pandan dip. See how to make soya milk and the pandan dip in our recipes!
