Thai Salt Doughtnuts ( Pa Torng Go )


These are Thai style doughnuts, they are slightly salty and eaten with hot sweet cocoa or chocolate for breakfast. I like to dip them in the chocolate and let them soak a little.

120 gms Wheat Flour ( Cake Flour )
2 Teaspoons Yeast
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1/8 Teaspoon Baking Soda
110 ml Water
Oil for Deep Frying

1. Mix the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, and baking soda together and leave for 5 minutes.
2. Add the water and knead it to a smooth dough. This takes about 15 minutes of kneading. If the dough is too soft, add a little more flour.
3. Leave it in a bowl, covered with a damp cloth of 1-2 hours to rise.
4. Roll the dough into a long sausage and flatten it into a flat strip about 5 cms wide.
5. Cut 'H' shapes from this strip of dough (you cut rectangular pieces off the strip and put two short cuts that don't quite meet in the middle, as shown below.
6. Heat the oil to 180 degrees celsius (medium hot) and fry the doughnuts until they are golden brown.


Serve With
Hot Coffee
Hot Chocolate

The recipe for Pa Torng Go looks good. I wonder what kind of oil would be best for deep frying? I've noticed in Thailand the Chinese version of these are better than the Thai version. Is that because the Chinese version uses wheat flour as you call for in your recipe?
