- 1 1/2 cup(s) Plain Flour
- 3/4 cup(s) sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
- 1 tablespoon(s) oil
- 1/2 cup(s) powdered milk
- teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
- oil (for deep frying)
- 1/2 cup(s) icing sugar
- warm water, as needed
In a bowl beat egg, sugar, vanilla and oil with the help of an electric beater, whisk or spoon.
In another bowl put flour and add baking powder, salt, powder milk. Mix well with the use of your hands.
Add egg mixture in flour. Knead with the use of your hands.
Keep on adding warm water until you get a dough which should not be very soft or very hard. Make 4-6 small balls out of this.
Take a ball on your palm, flatten it a bit, insert your finger in the middle and rotate it till it makes a hole, not so small (or you can use a doughnut cutter).
Fry the doughnuts in well heated oil (2 or 3 at a time). Be careful about the flame of your stove it should not be so large. The flame should be medium while frying.
When doughnuts become golden in colour, remove from oil and place on grease proof paper.
Put your icing sugar on top then sprinkle and decorate your doughnuts as desired.
