For making jam doughnuts firstly knead flour. Take maida in any flour and add butter, dry active yeast and sugar. Mix all ingredients really well. Now add little lukewarm milk at a time and knead soft dough. Keep kneading the dough for 5-7 minutes until it becomes soft and even.
Grease the dough with butter or oil and cover it and keep it aside for 2 hours so that it becomes puffy.
After 2 hours knead the dough once more. Divide the dough into small 8-10 equal parts. Take 1 part, dust it with dry flour and roll it giving a round shape. Place these balls on a plate and keep them aside for 1-1.5 hours more. They become puffy and double in size.
Balls have become puffy now fry them. Take oil in a pan and place on flame for heating. Gently place 2-3 or as many as possible balls in medium hot oil and fry on medium flame for until they turn golden brown in color from all sides. Fry all doughnuts like wise.
Now sprinkle some powdered sugar on piping hot doughnuts.
