Donuts from around the world

The best part of visiting new countries is learning about new cultures, and is there any better way to learn about culture than through food?⁣There are some things you try everywhere no matter what country you are visiting, Donuts is one of them.⁣

It is a food that is remarkably and reliably common across national and continental borders. You usually think of a flakey, sugary, circular slice of fried dough when you think of a donut (with a hole in the middle), but that’s not the case with all donuts across the globe. They may be different, but these doughnut variants will leave you drooling. A universal delight is fried dough, and it comes in all shapes and guises around the world, whether round or oblong, raised or flat, cooked in oil or simmered in ghee, packed with just about everything or just dough through and through.

You know the most common and the easiest donut to prepare without the fancy frills in South Africa is called the vetkoek, savoured in the deep rural and sold early morning even before dawn along the roadside of all the cities, migrants morning delight.

What a delicious variety of international deep fries. Stirred in sugar and sometimes cinnamon the mix of names given the donut.are too sweet. The koeksister though, the one considered the south african donut, i do wonder how that one got its name and become a common name. I wish i could show a picture of the real koeksister i know. Sometimes oblong, sometimes round, but never twisted this i know. Raisin brown, yes that is the koeksister i know, like a big brown raisin in the sun, sprinkled with dessicated coconut, sticky and spicy treat not to be compared with the traditional plaited Dutch koeksister. Mixed and Rolled out in cardamom, cinnamon, aniseed and ground ginger is the one I know, pressed into sausage shapes, once risen, an oval shape is form, that is essentially the ingredients of the koeksister I know.

Lovely post.
