Topping for the doughnut is up-to your creativity. I’m mentioning the ingredients which I used in this recipe.
- Chocolate – Amul 55% Dark chocolate
- Butter – 2 Tablespoon
- Nuts – 3 to 4 cashews
- Cake sprinkles (Bought from Bakerville )
Doughnut making steps:
- In a mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients and mix well
- Now add the Vanilla essence, vinegar/lemon juice, curd and give it a mix
- Start adding enough amount of milk to the mixture and make a soft dough
- Do not over mix or knead the dough
- Now keep the softened butter in the centre of the dough and start tucking in the dough multiple times
- Cover it with a cloth and let it rest for 1 hour
- Now make balls out of the dough. Roll the balls into 1/2 inch thickness and cut it into a doughnut shape.
- Use any bottle cap, vessel cap or bowl to cut the doughnut if you do not have a doughnut cutter
- Fry the doughnuts in low-medium flame. Do not burn the doughnut
- Once the oil stops to sizzle, take out the doughnut and let it cool down in a plate
- The doughnut is ready now !!!
Steps to garnish the doughnut:
- Chop the chocolate and pour molten butter into it to make chocolate sauce.
- Dip the doughnut in the chocolate sauce and sprinkle nuts, sugar, cake sprinkles as you wish.
- Voila!!! Cute looking yummy doughnuts is ready to eat!! Serve it hot for better taste!
- When you roll the dough make sure its at least 1/2 inch thick so that you get puffy, soft and most importantly tasty doughnuts
- Garnishing is absolutely up to your creativity. Here are a few suggestions from me:
- Any type of chocolate (white, dark, milk etc) you like can be used. You can make patterns with two different colours of the chocolate sauce
- You can also use ready make chocolate or caramel syrups
- Ready-made spreads like peanut butter, hazelnut or even Jam can be used
- Also, you can simply roll it in a mixture of powdered sugar and cinnamon powder
- I’ve tried dipping the doughnut in milkmaid and it has come out absolutely yum
- Any types of dried fruits/nuts/petals can be used.
