On Donuts

National Doughnut Day! Will you be celebrating with homemade doughnuts or picking up a box at the store? Share your best doughnut story or recipe.

I am not the biggest fan of doughnuts / donuts but on the odd occasion I get a craving for a nice & fresh donut. Very few times have I had a really good one and I find that it’s either average or really good. Ever since I can remember having donuts in India, it’s usually a very bad donut base with a chocolate glaze that kinda makes up for the lack of taste of the dough, just because it’s chocolate.

That leaves one less satisfied. Now, please understand that this is the case where I live. In the recent years we have had some improvement and there exists a few places – just a couple – where the donuts that they serve are mostly good to really good. Still we do not have them major chains in our fair state.

While in Chennai & Delhi respectively I was able to sample some really good donuts from Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts. The difference in taste is amazing! While I understand that the best donuts might not be from a chain but a small store run by a mom n pop in some small town, those towns and shops are nowhere near me. So I must rely on the major chains if I want a really good one or find a one of bakery or shop that does serve halfway decent wares.
