Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. * All purpose flour/Maida - 2 cups
  2. * Melted butter - ¼ cup
  3. * Milk - ¾ cup
  4. * Active dry yeast - 1 tsp
  5. * Sugar - 2 tbsp
  6. * Vegetable Oil - to deep fry
  7. * For the glaze topping: * Dark Chocolate - 100 gms
  8. * Icing sugar - 6 tbsp
  9. * Butter - 1 tbsp
  10. * Milk - 2 tbsp
  11. * Chocolate shavings & Chocolate chips anything to decorate your way..


  1. In a mixing bowl, throw in flour, sugar, melted butter, milk, yeast and give a mix with your hands. You may feel the mixture is more towards wet but keep mixing and you will get it right, once you get hold of the entire dough, sprinkle some flour on a clean work surface and keep kneading the dough until you get a soft dough. This may take around 7 minutes.
  2. Once done, keep the dough back into mixing bowl, cover bowl with a cling wrap and let it prove in a warm place from anywhere around 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. For better proving, preheat a convection oven or OTG and then turn it off. Keep the dough inside and leave it to prove.
  4. After half an hour, your dough should rise well, now is the time to punch it back and roll it out on a clean surface with little dusting of flour. 6. Roll it about half inch thick and then using a cookie cutter or a steel glass cut out circles.
  5. For the smaller circle cut out, use a small cap from a cold drink bottle or a narrow mouthed water bottle. Cut out the small circle from centre of the larger circle. 8. Re roll doughnuts until your dough is over.
  6. You can get your hands on a doughnut cutter as well for your ease which is pretty cheap to buy and I shall leave a link where you can buy it online in the end of this post. This recipe generally gives out around 15 standard sized doughnuts but I made smaller doughnuts so I got 30 doughnuts. This is totally a choice.
  7. Once the doughnuts are cut out, they are ready to go for second round of proving. Cover them with a cling wrap so that it doesn't touch the top and there is space left for the doughnuts to rise. Again, using the same proving, prove them.
  8. Fry the doughnuts over medium low flame on both sides until golden brown. 16. Now for the chocolate glaze melt dark chocolate over a double boiler and keep aside.
  9. For the icing sugar glaze, in a small bowl, thrown in melted butter, milk, icing sugar and mix well using a spoon. Then divide the glaze in three bowls, keep one white and dye the other two with your choice of colours.
  10. Then dip the doughnut in these prepared glazes and top with sugar beads or make patterns using chocolate. Once ready, refrigerate the doughnuts to let the glaze set. Store them in a air tight container if they are left and enjoy your homemade doughnuts.
