Glazed doughnut balls

Who do not love doughnuts?They are my favorite. Why the most delicious foods are always rich in calories? this question always strikes my mind. If they are low calorie food I would have enjoyed them every day. I just started making this doughnuts, just at the end my hubby came from work and we both started munching on them, we were so busy in munching that I just forgot to take the pics of my lovely doughnuts. I just took them at the end.  they came out really yum!!!! here is the lovely recipe for all of you!

2  envelopes active dry yeast(each 0.25 ounce)
1/4 cup warm water (115 F)
1& 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/3 cup shortening
5 cups all-purpose flour
vegetable oil enough for frying
1/3 cup butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
hot water as needed


  1. Add the yeast over the warm water, and let stand for 5-10 minutes until they become foamy.
  2. Take a large bowl, mix together the yeast mixture, milk, sugar, salt, eggs, shortening, and 2 cups of the flour.
  3. Mix for a few minutes at low speed by stirring with a wooden spoon. Beat in remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl.
  4. Knead, until smooth and elastic. Place the dough into a greased bowl, and cover with wet cloth. Set in a warm place to rise until double. Dough is ready if you touch it.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and gently roll out to 1/2 inch thickness.
  6. make very small balls out of the flour. Let doughnuts sit out to rise again until double. Cover loosely with a damp cloth.
  7. For Icing: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in hot water one tablespoon at a time until the icing is somewhat thin, but not watery. Set aside.
  8. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large heavy skillet to 350F. Just slide doughnuts into the hot oil using a wide spatula.
  9. Turn doughnuts over as they rise to the surface. Fry doughnuts on each side until golden brown. Remove from hot oil, to drain on a wire rack. 
  10. Dip doughnuts into the Icing while still hot, and set onto wire racks to drain off excess. 
Hope you like my recipe :)

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding.

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
