Parsi Food: Bhakra

Oh bhakra. These Indian doughnuts are just perfect with tea or coffee. They're sweet and deep fried like a doughnut but the texture is more akin to a corn muffin.

The dough is mixed until pliable and thick. Then it's rolled out and cut into small circles.

The small circles are gathered and lightly dipped in sugar to prevent sticking. Then they're fried in shortening until it puffs and browns. It tastes best when fresh but these coveted desserts lasts for days in an air tight container.
These are so good that when we travel people request them as gifts.
