According to its recipe, these are donuts, but they are mixed not with yeast, but with kefir. However, the cooking and roasting algorithm itself is about the same. Initially tararushki cooked in a Russian stove, and therefore were clearly healthier than cooked on the stove, and the taste was different. If desired, you can try to bake them in the oven, only the time it will be spent more.

The attractiveness of such baking - in the speed of its preparation: the direct kneading of the dough, the formation of "knots" and roasting take on the strength of 40 minutes.

Fry, on the contrary, it is better to plant. The following volume of each ingredient is designed for 14-16 tarashek.

How to make dietary tararushki?

In itself, the dough for these donuts is not so heavy - it is not yeast, which pleases the adherents of a healthy diet, and the greatest harm is not its components, but the cooking method. If you are worried about the shape and condition of the pancreas, you can use the same recipe for tarashek, but bake them in the oven. Or additionally modify the ingredients.

How to make dietary tararushki?

  • Replace whole wheat flour or take a mixture of wheat, oatmeal and rye in a ratio of 3: 2: 1 - this will make the dough more useful for the intestines, although it will not affect the calorie content.
  • Take only egg whites, without using yolks - the dough will become lighter, airier: both in energy value and in consistency. Before sending tarashek in the oven can sprinkle them with ground nuts or sesame seed.
  • Bake tararushki in an oven heated to 200 degrees, spreading them on a parchment sheet or silicone mat for 20-25 minutes.

Some hostesses add sour cream to the recipe of tararushka to make the dough softer, but there is not much point in this because of the large amount of kefir. The same can be achieved if you replace it completely with natural yogurt. And if you like the dough for tararushki, you can bake from it the usual cakes with any fillings.
