Hi Maam. This recipe looks really easy and interesting. I''m definitely going to try it. I have a small doubt. After kneading the dough should I keep it aside for some time or can I go ahead and start preparing the donuts?

Tarla Dalal    After kneading the dough, you can directly start rolling. There is no resting time.

WOWWWW.. I love doughnuts like anything. I always wanted to make them. I finally made them one day using this recipe and it came out super awesome. The dougnuts itself taste so amazing. The colour after frying was also just perfect. After dipping it in the chocolate sauces and just having it like that is a delight. The coloured vermicelli and stars are my favourite. They add such a beautiful colour to this doughnuts and make them look so attractive. It is totally worth the effort put in. All of you out there must also give it a try..
