Being an avid baker myself, I must confess, I have never tried making doughnuts at home. So when Lubna from Yummy Food told me that she was going to do a product review for MOD - Mad Over Donuts and asked me to join her, I was super excited as this was the first time I was going to do a product review for doughnuts.

Singaporean gourmet doughnut brand Mad Over Donuts announced the completion of 5 successful years in India.  As part of their promotional strategy, they invited food bloggers to come and do a product review at their newly opened store in Koramangala. 

As part of the celebrations, they have a line-up of exciting Anniversary Special Deals and activities in-store for their guests. This week-long celebration across Mad Over Donuts stores is from the 20th to the 26th of March 2013.

The biggest USP of MOD is that their bakes are 100% eggless, which makes them an obvious choice for vegetarians. They automatically become the replacement for our traditional mithais during festivities...why not gift a box of doughnuts instead???

The company already has more than 46 stores all over India in a span of 5 years, with expansion plans of more than double store count by the end of 2013. The company has a unique donut theatre concept, the first of its kind in India. The stores, present dominantly in malls, airports and high streets, are specially designed to showcase the donut-making process and provide a multi-sensory experience for customers. Mad Over Donuts eggless donut recipe has been developed by a team of world renowned F&B specialists. The stores have glass viewing areas that allow customers to watch the entire preparation process, from dough to donuts, an exciting proposition for both young and old.

They have 25 different flavours of doughnuts which include savory donuts also.

Paneer is an eternal favorite for me. I love any version of paneer. Paneer Butter Masala or PBM is something which I had for the first time in Delhi about 10 years ago. Its a classic street dish served in most road side eateries. It is the vegetarian version of Butter Chicken. 

This dish is really quick to make and goes very well with rotis, parathas, puris of rice.

200 gms paneer, cut in cubes,
2 onions, finely chopped,
1-1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste,
1 tsp red chilli powder,
1/2 cup tomato puree,
1 tsp sugar,
3 tbsp butter,
1/2 cup cream, (Amul fresh cream)
2 tsp oil,
1 tsp kasuri methi,
1 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped.
Salt to taste
  1. Heat oil and butter in a pan.
  2. Add onions and fry till it becomes light brown. Add ginger garlic paste and fry for another 2 mins. Add chilli powder and fry for another minute.
  3. Now add tomato puree and sugar and cook for 3-4 mins. Add 1 cup of water to this mixture. Cook until the gravy has thickened.
  4. Add the kasuri methi and paneer and mix well.
  5. Adjust the salt as per taste.
  6. Reduce the flame and add cream stirring continuously.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves and cream and serve hot.
Enjoy :-)
