  • Make dough rise. Bring water to a boil, then wait to cool. The water should be warm, 35-37 Celsius (95 F).  Add dry yeast and sifted flour (1¼ cups) to water (not much, just to mix all ingredients). Mix well. Leave for half an hour to rise (place on a windowsill, in a warm place).

  • When the dough is risen, pour this mixture to the rest of the flour. Add salt and warm water. Knead the dough. Then leave the dough for 1 hour to rise.

  • Warm up a deep fryer, pour in oil. Tear the risen dough into pieces, roll the balls and dip into oil. Brown until golden. 

  • Pour the powdered sugar into a bowl, roll fried donuts.


  • If you don’t have a deep fryer, use an Iron Pan or heavy-bottomed pot.

Bon Appetit!
