Today I am sharing a recipe of how to make donuts at home. It is very easy to make. I made these donuts during lockdown when I had enough time to make different types of food. I used to cook new dishes every day as I could easily purchase ingredients in the grocery nearby my home. When I posted doughnut photo on my Facebook story, a friend of mine requested me to write its recipe that’s why I am sharing this recipe here. The waiting time for doughnut is about 6 hours so if you want to have it as afternoon snacks, you have to follow the dough preparation step in the morning.
- white flour (maida) 1 kg
- Eggs 3 whole
- Warm milk 1 cup
- Dry yeast 1 tablespoon
- Butter 4 tablespoon
Step 9: Sprinkle a little bit of flour on the flat surface and softly knead the dough and gently roll it out until the thickness is less than an inch. If you have doughnut cutter, use it to easily cut out doughnut shape. If you don’t have doughnut cutter, then use the following method. First use any cup or round steel bowl to get a rounded dough.
Step 11: The doughnut shapes are ready after being cut. Roll the rest of the dough and repeat the same process for rest of them.
Step 12: Sprinkle flour in a tray and place the doughnuts there. Find a relatively warm spot in your kitchen to place the tray.
Step 15: Now to finally start frying the doughnuts. Turn on your gas stove, and heat up large quantity of oil in a stock pot or deep pot like karai.
Step 17: Fry the doughnut in medium to high heat. After about a minute or so, flip the doughnut and cook it on the other side for about 1 minute again. You will know when the doughnut is cooked by the golden brown color of the skin.
Step 18: After frying them well on both sides, take them out onto a colander or on a plate.
Bonus step: If you want a sweeter doughnut, sprinkle icing sugar over the doughnut. You can also spread chocolate syrup, colorful sprinkles to make your doughnut more attractive.
