Doughnuts -Happy Valentine's Day

Its a great time to tell you,guys.....I won two awards on cooking in an International Conference....I am honored to dedicate it to my family and friends,today....More coming up on my next post....

On this Celebration and flying mood.....Luv to Share my dough nuts (daring baker's recipe)which i made on a rainy day....Its an awesome treat , to spread the love....

Whisk the egg whites to bubbly

Soak the yeast in water for 10 minutes with a tsp of Sugar

Heat the milk in microwave for 1 minute and add the butter ,wait till it melts
Add the egg whites to the yorks

and add the soaked yeast to the mixture....Its mean all the wet ingredients are mixed to one....

Mix the flour in half way, with mixed wet ingredients and do add the rest of the ingredients.
The dough will be sticky,but still it takes best air..

The dough gets double in 20 minutes...Knead them well,adding some more flour..
Once,the dough is firm....Roll out and shape up with a dough nut shaper and any of ur desired shape..
Rest it for 20 minutes again

And Deep fry them....

Make the Chocolate sauce ready as in given recipe

Dip the doughnuts in the sauce...ohhhh...yummmm

This is one of the love shot happened in chennai....This Taj mahal is made out of Lindt Swiss (White)Chocolate....hmmm...Chocolates , never a sin...

Actual Recipe for doughnuts
·         1 1/2 cups milk
·         2 1/2 ounces vegetable shortening/butter, approximately 1/3 cup
·         2 packages instant yeast
·         1/3 cup warm water (95 to 105 degrees F)
·         2 eggs, beaten
·         1/4 cup sugar
·         1 1/2 teaspoons salt
·         1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
·         23 ounces all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting surface
·         Peanut or vegetable oil, for frying (1 to 1/2 gallons, depending on fryer)

1.Place the milk in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat just until warm enough to melt the shortening/butter. Place the shortening in a bowl and pour warmed milk over. Set aside.
2.In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and let dissolve for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, pour the yeast mixture into the large bowl of a stand mixer and add the milk and shortening mixture, first making sure the milk and shortening mixture has cooled to lukewarm.
3.Add the eggs, sugar, salt, nutmeg, and half of the flour. Using the paddle attachment, combine the ingredients on low speed until flour is incorporated and then turn the speed up to medium and beat until well combined.
4. Add the remaining flour, combining on low speed at first, and then increase the speed to medium and beat well. Change to the dough hook attachment of the mixer and beat on medium speed until the dough pulls away from the bowl and becomes smooth, approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a well-oiled bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
5.On a well-floured surface, roll out dough to 3/8-inch thick. Cut out dough using a 2 1/2-inch doughnut cutter or pastry ring and using a 7/8-inch ring for the center whole. Set on floured baking sheet, cover lightly with a tea towel, and let rise for 30 minutes.
6.Preheat the oil in a deep fryer or Dutch oven to 365 degrees F. Gently place the doughnuts into the oil, 3 to 4 at a time. Cook for 1 minute per side. Transfer to a cooling rack placed in baking pan. Allow to cool for 15 to 20 minutes prior to glazing, if desired.

I must say this is the best recipe for deep fried doughnuts.....Happy valentine's day...
