*I apologise for not posting any pictures of the procedure. I accidentally happened to delete the folder they were in! 😦

Ingredients :
All purpose flour ( 250 gms )
Egg ( 1 )
A pinch of salt
Milk ( 70 ml approx )
Water ( 50 ml approx )
Active dry yeast
Butter ( 10-15 gms )
Sugar ( 50 gms )
Instant Custard Mix
Cooking Chocolate ( chopped ) (3/4 )
Heavy cream ( 1 tablespoon )
Oil for deep frying

Directions :
For the doughnuts :
Into a bowl, add the sugar, water, dry yeast, milk, salt, egg and mix it all well.
Gradually add all purpose flour and keep kneading until you get a firm dough ( like the one for dumplings ). Add some melted butter and knead once again. Now cover this bowl with a moist cloth for about 30 minutes in a warm place and let the dough rise.
Knead it again after 30 minutes and let it rest again for another 20 minutes.
Roll the dough into a disk with a rolling pin and cut the doughnuts with a doughnut cutter or you may use any round utensils with different sizes.
Once the doughnuts are cut from the dough, let them rest again for about 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the doughnuts on low until golden brown.
For the filling and chocolate cover:
Use any instant custard mix of your choice and follow the directions on the packaging.
Add the chopped chocolates into a double boiler with the heavy cream and let it melt. Keep stirring until you get a smooth and shiny chocolate ganache.
Alternatively, you may heat the chocolate in a microwave for 30 second intervals that is heat for 30 seconds, take it out and give it a stir and again heat for 30 seconds. Continue this until all the chocolate is melted and then add the heavy cream and mix well.
The last and final step : Use a sterilized syringe, take off the needle and use the rest. Suck up the custard. Poke a hole into the doughnut and fill the doughnuts with all the yummy custard. Poke as many holed and fill as much as you want but do not overfill it so much that it starts oozing out or becomes soggy.
Pour some chocolate ganache over the doughnuts and refrigerate.
Once the chocolate is set, you can enjoy the yummy dessert with as many toppings you
