Method
    Method
  1. Combine the dry yeast, sugar and 1½ tbsp of lukewarm water in a small bowl and mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 30 minutes so that the yeast mixture becomes frothy.
  2. Combine the milk and butter in another small bowl, mix well and keep aside.
  3. Combine the plain flour and salt in a deep bowl and mix well.
  4. Add the dry yeast-sugar mixture and mix well.
  5. Add the milk-butter mixture gradually and knead into a soft and loose dough using water, if required.
  6. Add the oil and knead again till the dough is smooth and elastic.
  7. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
  8. Sprinkle some plain flour on a flat, dry surface and roll a portion of the dough into a 175 mm. (7”) diameter thick circle.
  9. Dust the rim of the doughnut cutter with some plain flour and cut out 3 circles of 75 mm. (3”) diameter with it. Discard the centre round portion of each of the 3 circles to form a ring like shape and place them on a butter paper.
  10. Repeat steps 8 and 9 to make 8 more doughnuts till the dough gets over.
  11. Cover the doughnuts with another butter paper while avoiding any contact with them and keep them aside in a warm place for 2 hours.
  12. Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai and deep-fry, 2 doughnuts at a time on a slow flame, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside.

For the dark chocolate sauce

    For the dark chocolate sauce
  1. Heat the fresh cream in a broad non-stick pan and cook on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  2. Remove from the flame, add the dark chocolate and butter and mix well, till the chocolate melts and no lumps remain to get a smooth sauce. Keep aside.

For the white chocolate sauce

    For the white chocolate sauce
  1. Heat the fresh cream in a broad non-stick pan and cook on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  2. Remove from the flame, add the white chocolate and butter and mix well, till the chocolate melts and no lumps remain to get a smooth sauce. Keep aside.

How to proceed

    How to proceed
  1. While the doughnuts are yet warm, dip one half of each of the doughnuts in the dark chocolate or white chocolate sauce and place them on a plate.
  2. Decorate the doughnuts by sprinkling chocolate vermicelli / edible coloured vermicelli / edible coloured stars / edible silver balls or use your own innovation to decorate them.
  3. Serve immediately or store refrigerated in an air-tight container and serve within 2 to 3 days.

Handy tip:

    Handy tip:
  1. To get the uniform golden brown colour of the doughnuts, at step 12, ensure to cook them on a slow flame while turning them at frequent intervals.
  2. To use a piping bag to decorate the doughnuts, fill the piping bag with the prepared dark chocolate sauce / white chocolate sauce, trim the edge of the piping bag using a pair of scissors and use your own innovation to design the doughnuts.

WOWWWW.. I love doughnuts like anything. I always wanted to make them. I finally made them one day using this recipe and it came out super awesome. The dougnuts itself taste so amazing. The colour after frying was also just perfect. After dipping it in the chocolate sauces and just having it like that is a delight. The coloured vermicelli and stars are my favourite. They add such a beautiful colour to this doughnuts and make them look so attractive. It is totally worth the effort put in. All of you out there must also give it a try..
