Homemade Donuts Recipe

Today is the Qatar's National Sports day and it's announced as a public holiday, yeay! It's actually the first National Sports Day, introduced this year and it'll be on the second Tuesday in February, yearly. This morning, we were invited to a friend's breakfast gathering, double yeay!! I brought some 'Malaysian' donuts to her party and it was my first attempt making donuts which the recipe referred was from my mother in law. So I'm sharing it here. It's such a simple recipe but kneading the dough was a bit tough for me. (for a first timer) However, the result was encouraging, the donuts were soft and yummeh :) 


4 mugs of flour
1 small packet of instant yeast
4 tbs of sugar
3 tbs of butter
1 1/2 mug of water + a bit of salt
1 tbs of cooking oil

Coating / topping:
Blended sugar / icing sugar


-Mix flour, sugar and yeast into a large bowl.
-Dissolve salt in the water and pour it bit by bit into the mixture.
(Adjust the water accordingly for a nice, soft dough)
-Then add the butter and cooking oil and knead the dough till smooth and soft.
-Leave the dough for at least an hour till it rise up, double of its original size
-From the dough, make round donuts shapes / any shapes of your liking.
-Leave it to rest for about 1 hour before frying.
-Fry the donuts in hot oil till golden yellow colour.
-Sprinkle the icing sugar before serving.

Best served for breakfast or evening tea :)
