Donuts

Whole Wheat and Eggless

Name a kid who doesn’t love Donuts..
Usually, making donuts need yeast, maida (All Purpose Flour) and eggs.
But, being a mother, you would always try to avoid feeding maida to kids, as it’s not very healthy.
Here’s this super easy version of Aata Based Donuts (Whole Wheat Flour) , it doesn’t need yeast or eggs.
But, tastes so so so good.
Try it now, your kids would love it. Even the kid in you would relish this yummy goodness.
Moving on to the recipe ..
Ingredients
Whole Wheat Flour (Aata) : 1 cup
Powdered Sugar : 1/2 cup
Oil : 2 tbsp + more for frying
Baking Powder : 1 tsp
Baking Soda : 1/2 tsp
Curd : 1/3 approximately, to knead dough

SUGAR GLAZE
Icing Sugar : 1/2 cup
Cold Water to make a sugar slurry
Sprinkles

CHOCOLATE GLAZE
Dark Chocolate : 2 bars
Or
White Chocolate: 2 bars
Method
• Take a big bowl, add whole wheat flour and powdered sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
If you don’t have powdered sugar, simply crush regular sugar in mixer grinder.
• Knead a soft dough using curd. Make sure your curd isn’t sour. It is preferable to use fresh curd.
• While kneading, if the dough gets too sticky, use about 2 tbsp oil. This would ease the process.
• Once your dough is ready, rest it for 2 hours at room temperature. Cover the bowl with a plate.
• After 2 hours, your dough would rise, it would be very soft.
Knead again, for a minute to bring it together.
• Now, you have to roll a thick chapati, using flour.
You can roll the dough on a clean kitchen shelf, or a silicon mat. I rolled it on a rolling board (Chakla)
• Heat oil in a wide pan, on a medium flame. When oil is hot enough for frying, turn the flame to sim.
• To cut the donut, you can use donut cutter. If you don’t have one, use a glass to cut donuts.
Use a nozzle or a small cork (any cold drink’s cap) to cut out a hollow in donut.
* For reference, check the image above.
• Fry one donut at a time, this would give it enough space, to rise up. Do not touch it with laddle. Instead, pour oil on donuts, with help of laddle.
• You have to fry them on slow flame, till they become reddish golden.
• Keep them on a kitchen towel, to soak extra oil.
• Fry all donuts.
• Sugar Glaze : Take a bowl, add icing sugar and cold water to make a thick slurry.
Pick up a donut, dip it in sugar glaze, rotate your fingers, in order to cover one whole side of donut.
And top it up with sprinkles.
• Chocolate Glaze : Take a bowl, add chopped chocolate in it. Microwave it for 30 seconds, stir it. It would start melting. Microwave it for another 10 seconds, till it melts completely.
Now, dip on side of donut in chocolate glaze, rotating your fingers, to spread glaze evenly.
Top it up with sprinkles.

Serve, this while they are still warm.
Enjoy
