This recipe yields 30 doughnut holes and it got over in matter of few seconds. It’s hard to believe but I had to prepare another batch 🙂
For eggless version you can try out banana modak. This is tried and liked by many of my readers.

Steps to prepare Banana Doughnut Holes
- In a bowl, add egg, milk, vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.
- Now add all purpose flour, cinnamon powder, salt, baking powder, brown sugar and mix well.
- Finally add the mashed banana and mix to form a medium thick batter.
- Meanwhile heat oil in a pan for frying.
- Once the oil is hot, drop tablespoon or teaspoon of the batter into the oil depending on the desired size. Do not overcrowd the pan as they will expand when fried.
- Flip them in oil for about 2 to 3 minutes or until they are brown.
- Transfer it to paper towel to absorb excess oil.
- In a bowl, add sugar and cinnamon powder and mix well.
- Roll each donut holes in this sugar cinnamon mixture.
- Banana Doughnut Holes is now ready. Serve immediately and enjoy.
- Check out eggless version : banana modak.
- Vary the sweetness in the recipe as desired.
- See that the oil is not too hot or too cold. If its too hot then the donut will turn dark brown very quickly and will not be cooked inside, and if its too cold it will absorb excess oil.
- To check if the oil is hot, just drop a little piece of the batter mix and check if it sizzles and comes up.
- Do not overcrowd the pan as they will expand when fried.
