What are donut balls?
Donut balls are round bite-sized mini donuts. These tiny treats are also known as donut holes. They were originally made from the centre piece of dough in traditional ring donuts (when made using a doughnut cutter). They remind me very much of gulgula (Indian fried balls) which I recommend as the yeast free alternative for donuts balls.
What Is Donut Ball Dough Made of?
Like most donut recipes, the doughnut ball is also yeast based. It is made with a combination of flour, yeast, butter and milk which help activate the yeast. As this is an eggless recipe, this recipe needs baking powder and you cannot substitute baking powder with baking soda.
How to Cook Donuts ?
They are often fried more than they are baked. For optimum results always fry in hot oil. The oil must be hot to ensure that the donut balls are not drenched in oil. Test to see if the oil is ready by placing a small piece of dough in the frying pan. If the dough rises to the top then the oil is ready for frying. Once fried, allow it to cool, then decorate as desired. Or else they can be dusted with cinnamon, cocoa, castor or icing sugar.
