DOUGHNUT RECIPE

METHOD

Take the flour + butter + salt + sugar and mix well till it becomes crumbly.

Now make a well in the centre, add the yeast mixture + vanilla essence and mix well .

Add milk little by little and start kneading it .

If you feel the dough is too thick then add little more milk , at this point the batter will be sticky.

Knead it atleast for 5 – 6 minutes till you get a plain soft dough without stickiness.

Rub oil all over the dough ,place it in a big bowl .

Cover and keep aside for 1 ½ hrs.

The dough must have doubled, punch the dough ,knead  for  a min and again keep aside for ½ or 1 hr.

Dust the rolling board and roll out  the dough  into ½ inch thick sheet.

Use the big round cutter and cut it .

Now take the small cutter and cut it in the centre as shown in the pic .[ bottle cap ]

Also cut few with big cutter without the hole in centre so that you can fill in chocolate sauce and relish it .

Arrange it in a plate , cover and keep aside for 30 mins to rise.

Deep fry the donuts on medium low flame .[ it browns quickly so be careful ,also don’t burn it ]

Flip over and fry till golden brown on both the sides.

Remove it on a absorbent paper and keep aside .

Serve warm.

You can serve it plain by sprinkling icing sugar pwdr or dip it chocolate ganache .

For the plain one without hole , just make a hole and squeeze in some chocolate sauce.

NOTES

  1. Tastes good when hot , So while serving you can microwave for 10 – 15 secs.
  2. Instead of yeast you can use 1 egg + 1 tsp baking pwdr .
  3. Be careful while frying , it browns fast. [ if it browns fast then the inside will not be cooked well ]
  4. Fry in small batches don’t overcrowd while frying .
  5. I kneaded the dough with my food processor.
  6. Gulab jamun is the Indian donut.
  7. For baking in convection mode – preheat the oven at 200 * and bake for 10 mins or till it is golden brown.
  8. The warm water for yeast should be such that you should be able to keep your finger in it for 10 counts.Either less or more will not work.
  9. Check the expiry date of the yeast before you start.
  10. Always store the yeast in the fridge.
