I was looking for a quick and easy yeast glazed donut recipe, but came across these wonderful bites. I made half a recipe and had to add an additional ounce or so of water to get my batter pancake like. I fried them in peanut oil, and used a small cookie scoop to make the balls. I used Sydney Mike's recipe for the the Attar Syrup. This took care of my craving for donuts! Very good!
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 ounce dry yeast
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- 1 1⁄4 cups water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups syrup (attar)
- oil (for deep frying)
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix flour, salt, and cornstarch.
- Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of water and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoons sugar.
- Add yeast mixture and 1 cup of water to flour and cornstarch. Beat well until smooth. (Batter should have the same consistency as pancake mix). Set aside one hour to rise.
- Heat oil in a deep-frying pan on medium to high fire.
- Dip a tablespoon in water, and pick up a small portion of the batter and drop it into the hot oil. Repeat until all the batter is used.
- Fry until light brown. Remove and dip in prepared cold attar (syrup).
- Serve while hot.
