  1. Can we bake this instead of frying

  2. Aarthi,

    wow, you crossed 500 posts in 2014.
    you are very hardworking.
    Keep Going :)


  3. What milk powder do you use?

  4. Am so nervous. .it's the tym fr rising.. will the dough rise???

  5. For chocolate sauce can I use normal sugar instead of icing sugar

  6. Alternative of yeast pls....

  7. hi I tried making them.
    but after putting the yeast it did settle for 15mins.
    even the dough did not rise and donuts turned a bit hard.
    where did i go wrong?

  8. @Anonymous I think something went wrong with activating yeast.

    For activating yeast,

    1)Use very very warm water or milk and add yeast to it. If you add yeast to hot water or milk,then it will kill the yeast and it wont activate.

    2) If you use cold water or milk, then yeast wont activate.

    3)You need to add little sugar with yeast, because yeast needs some sweetness to activate.

    Just try it again and let me know.

  16. I dnt knw whr I went wrong. My dough is not rising. :(

  17. @Fariza MarzookIt is because of the yeast. There may be these reason.

    1)The yeast may be expired. Get a new one.
    2)You must have added too hot water so the yeast has died.
    3)You must have added too cold water, so the yeast is not activated.

  37. Hi Aarthi, I made these doughnuts today.... They came out perfect...
    soft and pillowy from inside.. My kids n I couldn't stop eating them ...
    Hot and fresh out of the wok.. Totally loved it...
    Thanks for such an awesome recipe.. Hugs

  38. Hi I HV tried or doughnut recipe n it has cm out well. Once the drought didn't ris at all probably bcoz the yeast didn't activate. Thx

  39. @simmiu must have added too cold water or too hot water. Always make sure your yeast is bubbly before adding it into the flour

  40. Hi, is there any alternative for milk powder or is it a must for this recipe

  41. Instead of powdered sugar what can you use ?

  42. @Anonymoususe normal sugar which is powdered

  43. Ur recipe is the best!!!! I wanted to try it for the longest time ever since i first read it n when i finally did it today, initially i had doubts if i could make them but woohoo!! Dey turned out super good n im so glad i stumbled across ur blog! Keep up the awesome work so tht us begineers can get confidence, step by step with their baking skills all thanks to superb bakers like you!

  44. I am definite that the measurement for milk isn't correct
    Please rectify it

  45. Can I use instant yeast?! If so.. How many tsp should I use?

  46. @Anonymousi feel it is good. you can add little by little and knead it

  47. You know, it's strange that I used every single step as you mentioned but the dough didn' rise.. The only doubt I have is with the yeast.. You haven't mentioned if it was regular yeast or dry active yeast.. Would that make a difference? (Just so you know, I used dry active yeast)..

  48. @AnonymousIf the dough didn't rise it is because of the yeast. You must have added cold water to it so the yeast is not activated. or you have added too hot water which killed the yeast

  49. alternative for milk powder

  50. @Smitha dinesh i think it would work best when deep fried but if you would like go ahead and experament sorry for the one whole year to reply

  51. Hi Aarthi,
    Thank you for your fantastic recipes. I have a severe allergy to eggs and am glad to have found your recipe for eggless donuts. I just have one doubt, in this recipe you have mentioned using 1 1/2 tsp of Dry yeast for 3 cups of flour, but in your other eggless donut recipe (linked in this recipe) you have mentioned using 1 tablespoon of yeast for 3 cups of flour. Which is the correct ratio for dry yeast to flour?

  52. arthi
    kindly mentionen in tblsp of yeast... i couldnot understand the 11/2 portion

  53. I tried it with 1 cup of maida and 2 cups of atta and it came out so well. Tasted great. Thank you for recipe.

  54. I just made donuts from your recipe. Super yummy in taste. Loved it totally by my kids and hubby.

  55. Hi. I have tried many of your recipes earlier which came out very well. But with the doughnut recipe i failed.
    My doughnut was hard...& second problem which i faced was, as soon as i put the batter for frying, it used to turn brown in colour. It gets cooked from outside but the inside is partially cooked. What could be the reason? The oil was not hot. I tried to redo it by keeping at the lowest temp but still the same.

    One of your recipe mentions to use baking powder. Which one is softer? with or without baking powder.

    Looking forward to your reply.

  56. @Rajani Menonyou are cooking it in high flame, just cook it in moderate flame. doughnut with yeast makes soft ones.

  57. Which brand of yeast u have used?

  58. Please..arthi...can u tell me the brand name of yeast that u r using..i want to make it in ramadan

  59. Hiii Checchiiii..
    I Tried your wheat naan and pepper chicken yesterday. It was Yuuummmmyyyy.. That was my first try naan and pepper chicken.. Huuggss to you!!
    Now i want to try donuts.. my sisters always had asked me to try but i was scared thinking it would turn out bad, but i trust your recipes so i want to try this out.
    I have a doubt here.. is there any difference between dry yeast and normal yeast? or is it necessary to purchase dry yeast for this recipe?

  60. Arthi always my doughnuts are bit hard dear wats da reason ...yeast is always active

  61. Chechi
    I think my milk was too much than needed. I didn't pour the whole thing into the maida? Should iI?I don't want to add more maids and increase the quantity. But will it rise enough as the rest of yeast is in other half of the milk? I
    I'm a big fan of your Indian food. I never knew you were a masterchef I'm preparing for my sons 1zt birthday and really wanted to make donuts. I'm done having tried two recipes and failed. Accidentally came across your site.

    1. if u add too much milk, you can add maida and knead it well

  63. If I am using Gloripan active dry yeast, quantity remains same as above?

  64. Can I leave the donuts overnight and fry in the morning
