  • Milk / Cool Water -1/2 cup
Method
  • Boil Milk and sugar untill sugar dissolves...let it cool..
  • When the milk is slightly warm add it to the yeast and mix lightly and keep it undisturbed for 10 to 15 mins..
  • After 10 mins this yeast mixture will be frothy.
  • Melt butter and let it cool, once cooled add the eggs and mix well...
  • Add the yeast mixture to this egg and butter mixture.
  • And beat till well incorporated.
  • Mix all purpose flour and salt .Add this mixture to the egg mixture little by little and form a dough.This dough will be little sticky..
  • Grease a bowl with butter or oil ..
  • Transfer the dough to this bowl and cover it with an air tight lid
  • Refrigarate it overnight.
  • The next day...
  • Slightly Flour the work surface.
  • Roll the dough to one inch thickness
  • Take a round cookie cutter and make circles.
  • Take another small cookie cutter or in my case i used the lid of a plastic juice bottle..to make a circle inside the big circle
  • Transfer these circles to a plate cover with aluminium foil and cover it with a damp cloth and Keep it aside for an hour .
  • After an hour the dough would have risen very well...look at the pics to see the difference..
  • In a pan heat oil for deep frying and fry each doughnut to golden brown color and let it cool..
  • Make the Glaze by mixing water/milk with vanilla essence and powdered sugar...i used only water in this glaze...so it was not white in color...but if we use milk instead we’ll get nice white glaze.
  • Dip each doughnut in the glaze ..don’t dip in fully just 1/2 or 3/4 th of the doughnut must be dipped..
  • Place these doughnuts in a wire rack and let it dry...
  • This is most important step in the whole process...... dig in...
  • This doughnut was very light ,airy inside and crispy outside...do i have to say more? it was absolutely divine...so friends when u crave for a doughnut try to make it at home next time...u’ll surely love it..this recipe yielded about 35 doughnuts...
