INTERNATIONAL: Bread of the Week 35 – Calas and Crusty French Dinner Rolls

According to Wiki:  Calas (/ kəˈlɑː /) are dumplings composed primarily of cooked rice, yeast, sugar, eggs, and flour; the resulting batter is deep-fried. It is traditionally a breakfast dish, served with coffee or cafe au lait, and has a mention in most Creole cuisine cookbooks. Calas are also referred to as Creole rice fritters or rice doughnuts.  
They originated in western Africa (the traditional rice-growing region of West Africa, stretching from Senegal down to Sierra Leone and Liberia) and then to France (beignets de riz)and also to Creole in USA.
