Doughnuts without holes! This is a traditional Jewish holiday recipe, suphganiot are commonly served during the Hanukkah season.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 4 cups self-rising flour
- 2 eggs
- 2 (8 ounce) containers yogurt
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
- 3 quarts vegetable oil for frying
Combine flour, eggs, yogurt, sugar, salt and vanilla sugar in a large mixing bowl. Let the dough sit for 30 minutes, it will rise.
Form the dough into balls with 2 inch diameters.
Heat the vegetable oil to 365 degrees F (190 degrees C) in a large pot (or deep fryer) over high heat. It is best to use a basket or slotted spoon for deep frying the suphganiot as the oil will be extremely hot. Deep fry the dough in the oil. Let the suphganiot cool and drain on paper towels.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
