These are super fluffy, pillowy donuts, I have given it a twist of sugar glazing and melted chocolate.
· 2 cups Maida
· 1 cup almond milk or coconut milk (for a
lactose version use regular milk)
· 1.5 tsp instant yeast
· 2 tblsp butter
· 1 egg
· 2 tblsp sugar
· 1/2 tsp salt
· A pinch of nutmeg
· A pinch of cinnamon powder
· Oil for frying
For sugar and chocolate garnish
· 1/2 cup powdered sugar
· 100 gms melted chocolate
Mix milk, yeast and sugar together and let it froth for 15 minutes. (DO NOT PROCEED IF THE MIXTURE DOES NOT FROTH). Start again.
In a deep bowl, add maida, egg, butter, salt, and mix well. Add cinnamon and nutmeg and keep aside.
Add the milk mixture to the bowl and make a thick batter. Almost like a idli batter.
Cover and let the dough proof for almost 2.5 hours or till it doubles.
Heat oil. Drop in spoonfuls into medium hot oil.
For sugar and chocolate glazing:
Drop in hot fried Loukoumades directly into powdered sugar and coat well.
Drizzle melted chocolate on the sugar coated Loukoumades.
