This donut is a crispy and spicy snack and tastes really yummy when served with coconut chutney. This deep-fried, fragrant donuts has all the goodness of an indulgent snack.

A good quality of black gram lentil is a must to make this. Use black grams without the black skin. Use very little water to make a thick batter so that the donut will absorb very less oil.If you grind it for a long time, the batter will become very sticky and you may not be able to shape it.

Enjoy the donuts with a cup of hot tea. This will definitely make an evening treat for you and your family.

Preparation Time: 2 hours
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 20 donuts

2 cups of black gram lentil
4 cups of water
2 tbsp rice flour
1/4 cup onion chopped
3 green chillies chopped
1-inch ginger piece crushed
A pinch of baking soda
1 tbsp crushed black pepper
Curry leaves chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

  • Wash and soak the black gram in water for 1 hour.

  • After 1 hour, wet a grinder. Add the soaked lentil and grind into a smooth paste without adding water. If it is difficult to grind, sprinkle very little water and grind. You should get a thick, smooth and fluffy paste-like batter.

  • Transfer the batter to a bowl and whisk for 5 minutes. This will make the donut soft.

  • Add the chopped onion, chilly, ginger, curry leaves, black pepper, baking soda, rice flour and salt to the batter. Mix well with a spoon and let the batter sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

  • The batter must be very thick. Then only you can shape it. If you feel it is not thick, try adding a little rice flour.

  • Heat oil in a pan or skillet. Then apply water to wet the palm of your hand. Place a spoon of batter on your wet palm. Press it slightly with fingers of the other hand to make a round shape. Now, using one finger, make a small hole in the middle of it.

  • Drop it carefully into the hot oil. Fry the donuts on medium heat until both sides are golden brown.

  • Transfer to a tissue to absorb any excess oil. The soft and fluffy donuts are ready. Serve hot with coconut chutney or any dip you like.

  • Wet your palm every time you make the round shape. This will prevent the batter from sticking to your hands.
