Hey this is my another experimented dish of  soy,which turned out really amazing. After prepared soybean poda pitha i have some left over of soy bean paste .I thought to mix it with any batter but later realized that  its consistency get slightly thick after stored in refrigerator.

While preparing doughnut i was sure my daughter will never eat because its made out of soy. When coated with chocolates and decorated it, my daughter who was a chocolate princess of mine,she got the smell and asked me to have a bite.

I was expecting that she will refuse it after one byte.But  she ate the full doughnut without any drama.I just asked ” did u like ?she said yes , its little different from the traditional doughnut  but yes its tasty.”

I made around 6 doughnuts and she ate 3 from them.Really when i was chasing her to taste the food she wasn’t. But this time she made my day and i got my reward.

Preparing soy doughnut is quite easy and quick also.You need to soak soy bean seeds for whole night or 9 to 10 hours.

Rinse and discard all the water.While blending use less water and form a thick mixture.I know its little laborious but blend in small batches will help you to get smooth paste in less time.

Soy dough recipe

Unlike traditional doughnut i have used baking powder instead of yeast.And add 6 to 7 tsp refined flour along with salt,sugar and mix to form a dough.Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

Once take out from refrigerator, knead the dough.Its little sticky unlike traditional doughnut dough.So i suggest you to use refined flour while kneading .

Prepare medium balls out of the dough.if the dough is sticking to your hand then don’t worry,use some flour on your palm and prepare balls.

Flat them slight in your palm and shape into doughnut. Keep them on a dusting plate.

Refrigerate all the doughnuts for 15 to 20 minutes to set.

Now heat oil in a shallow pan or wok.Take out doughnuts from refrigerator,set them for 5 minutes. Fry one by one until golden brown both the sides over medium flame.

Don’t over cook or high temperature to fry the doughnut ,it will crack the doughnuts.These dough nuts are little delicate but workable ,so carefully place them in hot oil.
