Egg-less Doughnuts

Hi,

First of all, we are very sorry for the delay. We both were busy with our semester exams and internals.

So here we are with a little treat for you… Doughnuts…!! 😀

This recipe was given to me by my friend… after a lot of begging and pleading…!! 😉 But it was all worth it. The doughnuts turn out really soft and taste delicious. And since we are chocoholics, we dipped them in loads of chocolate ganache.

Hope they satisfy your sweet tooth… 😉

Happy cooking.

Ingredients:

  • 250 gm…. Refined flour/ Maida
  • 7 gm…. Active dry yeast
  • 5 gm…. Salt
  • 50 gm…. Sugar
  • 1 tbsp… Flex seeds + 3 tbsp… Water (1 egg)
  • 50 ml…. Water
  • 70 ml…. Milk
  • 15 gm…. Butter (softened)
  • Oil…. for frying
  • Chocolate (dark and white)…. for ganache

DSCN0484

Method:

Take milk and water together in a vessel and heat it till they are lukewarm (around 45⁰ C). Stir sugar in this lukewarm warm mixture until it completely dissolves. Crush 1 tbsp of flex seeds and add 3 tbsp of water to them and keep aside.  Bring together all the dry ingredients i.e. flour, salt, dry yeast and mix them roughly.

DSCN0485

Add the milk-water-sugar mix and strain the flex seed mix into the dry ingredients. If you wish to use egg, add one medium sized egg, whisked, instead of the flex seeds mixture. Knead until soft dough is formed. The dough may be a little sticky, so no need to worry. Let this dough rest for 30 minutes in a warm place covered in a tea towel. After 30 minutes knock down the dough and let it rest for another 30 minutes, in a warm place, covered.

Then knead the dough and dust some flour onto the counter and roll the dough into a sheet of about 1cm thickness. Cut into the doughnut shapes and let these rest for another 15 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan and when it comes to the adequate temperature, lower the heat. Fry the doughnuts on a low heat, until golden-brown.

You can decorate by dipping them into a simple chocolate ganache. You can also toss these hot doughnuts into a mixture of caster sugar and cinnamon. Melted white chocolate sauce can be drizzled over.

  •  You can also drizzle honey or maple syrup over these doughnuts.

Mango Frozen Yogurt

We both love ice-cream. How much ever health conscious we get, we thought we could never substitute ice-cream for anything else. But then we stumbled across Frozen yogurt and we actually found  it delicious.

So we decided to make some at home. After trying quite a few recipes, this is the one we liked the most. And since mangoes are in season, it makes it all the more delicious. Hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Happy cooking.

Shift to a plastic container and let it freeze.

h42mjxtkx3tgfq6ja4r7lmh9cwy6d3evAfter about two hours (of after the mixture is frozen), scrambble the frozen mixture. This is to encourage even freezing and creamy texture. Repeat this 3-4 times at a interval of about 30-45 mins. Then let it freeze. Serve.

Tips:

  • To make Greek yogurt, strain whole milk yogurt by hanging it in a thin cotton cloth for 6-8 hours. DSCN0194
  • You can use different berries or other fruits such as peaches.
  • Do not add water to the mixture while blending or else the resultant frozen yogurt will be icy and not creamy.
  • You can serve Mango frozen yogurt with berries or chocolate chips.
  • You may need to adjust the sugar content as per the sweetness of the mangoes you are using. We used Alphonso mangoes, you can use any mango that is available to you.
