Lastly, here are some cooking tips that I will share with you. First, make sure that you are not using recycled oil in order to have a fresh tasty product. Second, watch out for the fire. Do not overheat your oil so as not to burn your dough. To avoid over-frying of your dough, flip if the color underside is already golden. Do not overload your fryer too. Don’t be in a hurry, it is better to work slowly but surely rather than to burn all your dough. Third, drain the doughnuts into the fryer for a few minutes before removing them. This will save you from using more oil. And lastly, avoid twisting when cutting your doughnuts, instead cut in a straight down movement.
