5 yr old foodie: Mama, can you make Doughnuts?
5 yr old foodie: They are round like Medu Vada, with a hole in the centre. But they are not spicy they are sweet. (satisfied that he knows more than his mama)
Me: Is it?
5 yr old foodie: Yes and you have to pour lotso’ black colored sauce over it.
Me: Where did you see the doughnuts (since they are not a very common bakery item here)
5 yr old foodie: Saw it on the T.V. So can you make them?
Me: I am not sure. Don’t know the recipe
5 yr old foodie: Why don’t you checkup on your laptop, you are searching recipes all the time!
With a non stop follow up for the next 2-3 days he was successful in persuading me to make Doughnuts.
I found a very simple and easy recipe in Tarla Dalal’s ‘The Chocolate Cookbook’
I made the doughnuts as per the recipe and topped them with powdered sugar and Hershey’s Chocolate syrup
The 5 yr old foodie did total justice to all my efforts and all the Doughnuts disappeared in no time! (He is already asking when I can make the next batch! 🙂 )
Here’s the recipe:
