My family was in the mood for some doughnuts, but I was not so much in the mood to wait too long to get to the finished product or put in too much effort. We were all in a hurry to get to the eating bit. I was hankering for something sweet but did not want to consume too much sugar. So, that is how I ended up making these.
These are simple to put together and is ideal when you crave something sweet. Goes really well with a cup of tea or coffee. These were gone so fast at home. As I was making these my son was hovering around the kitchen and intermittently a couple of these kept disappearing from the plate. He did sprinkle the sugar on these bite sized doughnuts and if you notice in the picture there are not as evenly sprinkled but I wanted to keep them just like that in the picture because that is what baking at home is like when everyone is around.
Let’s get to the recipe
Self-rising flour – 2 cups
Yoghurt – 2 cups
Egg – 1
Sugar – ½ cup
Nutmeg – 1 teaspoon
Cardamom powder – 1 teaspoon
Caster Sugar for sprinkling on the surface
A little milk – if needed to get the consistency right.
- Place all the dry ingredients in the bowl first, the self-rising flour, nutmeg, cardamom and sugar and mix through evenly.
- Then add in the wet ingredients – the yoghurt and egg.
- If the batter is too thick, add in a little bit of milk to get the right consistency, ideally the batter should be wet and slightly thick.
- In a pan, heat oil, once heated, scoop out bite sized portions of the batter into the hot oil using a spoon or a piping bag and fry till golden brown and cooked through. Make sure to adjust the heat so that outside does not get overtly done and the inside is not.
- Once done, place them in a plate with sugar in it, allowing the surface to get coated with the caster sugar.
- They are now ready to eat.
