Sufganiyot - Hanukkah Doughnuts

After an addictive Finnish Munkki, am taking you all to Israel, i picked Sufganiyot for this week's blogging marathon as am running with doughnuts as theme for this week. Doughnuts doesnt need any special introduction and these deep fried beauties can be found around the world in different form with different filling or without any filling. After the ring like shaped doughnuts, today's Sufganiyot goes for a round ball shaped fried balls. Usually Sufganiyot, this jelly doughnuts are the famous national treat during Hanukkah. Traditionally this popular doughnuts is prepared with jelly eventhough now many variations with many different fillings do exists. I made my Sufganiyot with chocolate filling aka nutella instead of jam filling as none want these doughnuts with fruit jam filling.

I simply rolled the yeast dough as small balls and filled them later with nutella filling, while googling i found some sufganiyot preparation goes both balls or else as usual round soft and filled doughnuts.However since this both method exists, i went for the simple balls shaped ones. Nutella and fried doughnuts, who will say no to this alluring fried balls for their snacks. My kids simply enjoyed these doughnuts and they vanished just in few minutes..Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#47.
