Hi my beautiful people,

There must be some of you who will be spending some quality time together at your home... So why don't you cook something special, and filled with loads of love? Here is one recipe that is super easy and can be made not just by girls, but also men to woo their lady love. 
And coming from the super chef Neha Deepak Shah, who has been the runners up on MasterChef India, this recipe is bound to make your beloved feel truly special... 


The Heart Shaped Love Donuts by Neha Deepak Shah 

Refined flour / Maida - 200g
Fresh yeast (Try using fresh, It makes all the difference) - 5g
Sugar - 10g
Salt - 5g
Warm water (It should not be very hot, It can deactivate the yeast) - For kneading the
Oil - 10g
Oil - For frying

1) Make the dough on the cooking station. (Directly on the platform). It help you work the dough better. Making a good dough is the most important of the steps.
2) Take the flour on the platform and form a heap. Make a well in the center and add the yeast and sugar. Add some water and mix well. Add the oil and salt.
3) Slowly add more water and knead the dough. Work the dough very well. It needs a lot of stretching and pulling. At least 5 - 7 minutes of vigorous kneading.

4) Let the dough rest for fermentation (1st fermentation) for about 20 minutes. By this time your dough would have doubled in side.
5) Now punch your dough hard to again flatten it and remove all the carbon dioxide from it.
6) Now use some dusting flour (Maida) and roll the dough to about 1/4th thickness. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out your doughnuts. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, make a stencil from butter paper and cut using a pointed knife (Tip - once having made the cut outs, Dust them with flour on one side. This side should be down during proofing (2nd fermentation). When you are letting the doughnuts for proofing place them on a greased surface or place. They are easier to handle)
7) Leave your doughnuts for proofing for about 35 minutes. They will double in size. Remember they are extremely delicate so handle them with care.
8) Fry them in oil. (The oil should be preheated in advance) Fry them till golden in color.

Your doughnuts are ready. All you have to do is coat them with some dark chocolate or white chocolate with some edible decorations and you are done. Serve them to your beloved with loads of love… You can also dip them in strawberry syrup if your beloved loves the flavour.... :-)
