Eggless Pinacolada Doughnuts

This months challenge for the Eggless Bakers Group  came as a surprise because doughnuts was something which we love a lot and so I have made them at home before. So for the first time I felt confidant of myself .

The stuffed pinacolada doughnuts that I have made are my personal favorites . They taste just out of this world and so wanted to share this pleasure with you all.

For baking eggless I substituted eggs with curds this time and used 2 tbsp curds for 1 egg.

But as you all know that chocolate is an all time favourite with kids ( and  most of the adults too ) I made some with the chocolate glaze for my son , for whom chocolate is the ultimate and only flavour in the world worth enjoying.

Thanks gayathri  and jayanthi for such a wonderful experience.






Ingredients :

2 n  1/2 cups....................all purpose flour
1/2 tsp...............................dry active yeast
3 tbsp.............................sugar

1/2 cup...................fresh grated coconut

For Chocolate glaze :

50 gm .....................bitter chocolate slab ( I use Morde brand)

Method :

In a bowl mix yeast, sugar, 2 tbsp curds and keep for 10  minutes.
Now add maida, vanilla essence , and salt to it and knead it well adding little milk at a time.
Continue till all the milk is over.
Add oil and knead well till the dough in non sticky.







Keep it in a greased bowl with a plastic wrapped for one hour .
The dough will almost be double in size.
Now  punch the air out and knead it again.
Divide the dough in two parts.



For the pinacolada doughnuts :

Now roll the other half dough into a thick round and cut with a big bottle lid .
Fill it with the pineapple mixture and make a ball.
Press the ball to make a shape of stuffed puri .














Deep fry these stuffed doughnuts in oil till golden brown in color.

Dust these doughnuts with powdered sugar.











For the chocolate coated doughnuts :

Take one part on a floured surface and roll a round of about 5 mm thick.
Cut with a bottle led and make small holes in middle with small lid.




Heat oil and deep fry these doughnut to a golden brown color.
Now for the chocolate glaze melt the chocolate slab with butter .





Dip the doughnuts in this glaze and let the chocolate set.
