  • butter 3 to 4 tablespoons (softened)
  • Dry active yeast 1 teaspoon
  • Lukewarm milk 3/4 cup (200 ml)
  • Vanilla essence 1 1/2 teaspoon

  • oil for frying and greasing

How to make Donuts

  1. To the lukewarm milk, add yeast and sugar. Cover and place it in a warm place for 10-15 minutes or until it turns frothy.
  2. Take maida in a kneading plate and add butter, yeast mixture, vanilla essence and sugar and start kneading the dough. Sprinkle some more flour if you feel the dough is sticky. After 7 minutes of kneading form a big ball of it.
  3. Grease a big bowl with some oil and keep the dough in it. Apply some more oil over the dough and cover the bowl and keep in a warm place for about 90 minutes.
  4. Take the dough out gently and roll it using a rolling pin. Dust with some flour. Just roll it of about 1-1.5 cm. thick. Using a drinking glass cut circles and using a bottle cap, cut donut holes.
  5. Leave the donuts for 30 minutes or until they double in size. Heat enough oil in a wok. Once it is medium hot, fry donuts until they turn light brown.
  6. For glazing, just mix the icing sugar, 3-4 tsp water and vanilla essence and dip hot donuts in it. Keep these on a wire rack to cool.
  7. For decoration, melt both the chocolates and dip the donuts in them and decorate them as you like. Sprinkle some sprinkles and crushed nuts/chocolate to make them look even better!

My Tip:

Add more sugar to the dough if you want your donuts to be sweeter.
