Extra flour for Dusting/Rolling
Oil for Deep Frying
  1. Take a bowl. Add slightly warm milk, sugar and mix well until dissolve completely. Add dry yeast, mix it, cover it and keep aside for 10 minutes until yeast becomes foamy.
  2. Take another big bowl and shift the flour in it. Add salt, baking powder and mix well. Add melted butter, vanilla extract, yeast mixture and mix well.
  3. Now make a slightly sticky, but soft dough, use water as required.
  4. Dust the flour on the kitchen surface and turn the dough on it, then knead it for five minutes or until it becomes smooth and soft.
  5. Apply a few drops of oil, then cover the dough into the big bowl for 30-35 minutes until double.
  6. Once dough becomes double, punch it down, knead it again for two minutes, and divide into 2-3 portions of ball. Dust the flour and roll the ball into thick circle.
  7. Now use a round cookie cutter or a sharp corner round glass and cut into small-small disks. Take a small cap/lid of a small bottle, press on the center of the disk and make the small hole. You will get exact shape of donut. Make a few donuts like that.
  8. Place donuts on a tray. Apply little oil with a brush or spray. Cover the tray with plastic wrap and keep aside for 25-30 minutes or until it becomes double.
  9. Heat oil in a deep pan/Kadhai, fry the donuts on a medium flame until golden brown, remove it on absorbent paper and keep aside.
  10. If you don't want to fry them, you can bake them 200 C or 450 F for 7-10 minutes until golden brown.
For Glazing
  1. Take a small bowl for sugar glaze. Add powder sugar, melted butter, warm water, mix well and make a syrup.
  2. Dip the fried donuts in the sugar syrup and coat all sides.
Icing and Topping/Decorating
  1. In a medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and oil/butter with a spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and one tablespoon milk.
  2. Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable.
  3. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time.
  4. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
  5. Now divide it equally in three bowls. In one bowl, add blueberry juice, mix it well and make purple frosting. In another bowl, add cocoa powder and make chocolate frosting. In third bowl, keep it as is, a plain white.
  6. Now as per your choice spread the frosting on donuts, then sprinkle different kinds of toppings on it like coconut flakes, rose petals, Pistachios, or colorful sprinkles.
  7. Once all done, keep it aside to set properly. Homemade Vegan Donuts or Doughnuts is ready, serve fresh and enjoy.
