The craving hits you every once in a while alright...for the real deal..proper yeasty donuts!!!, this recipe was all over the blogosphere earlier as a part of the Daring bakers challenge, I followed what Deeba made as she too blogs from India too and that makes it sooo much easier for me!!, anddd just in case you are looking for instant gratification you can head over to my recipe for Instant Donuts, ready in a jiffy!!!

I halved the recipe as the original recipe makes about 30-35 medium sized ones which were way too much for me, so this recipe makes about 15
you need-
  • Milk-3/4 cup
  • Unsalted butter, melted- 35gms
  • Fresh yeast- 15gms (1 and 1/2 tsp)
  • Warm water-1/4 cup
  • Egg-1
  • Powdered sugar-2 tbsp
  • Flour- 2 and 1/3 rd cup 
  • Salt-3/4 tsp
  • Grated nutmeg-1/2 tsp
  • Refined vegetable oil- for deep frying
  • Mix the warm milk and butter. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, pour the warm water over the fresh yeast and let dissolve for 5 minutes. 
  • After 5 minutes, pour the yeast mixture into the large bowl of a stand mixer and add the milk and shortening mixture, first making sure the milk and shortening mixture has cooled to lukewarm.
  • Add the eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and half of the flour. Start kneading by hand, putting it all together
  • Add the rest of the flour and knead well till smooth and non sticky
  • Transfer to a well-oiled bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size
  • Cut out or shape the dough by hand like I did dusting liberally with flour. 
  • Set on floured baking sheet, cover lightly with a tea towel, and let rise for 30 minutes.

  • Heat the oil till ready for deep frying, gently lower donut into the oil, it should come up immediately and then let it cook for a minute till golden on either side, dust/sift liberally with some powdered sugar and cinnamon immediately. Delicious!!!
