A sufganiyah (Hebrew: סופגנייה or סופגניה; plural, sufganiyot: סופגניות) is a round jelly doughnut eaten in Israel and around the world on the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. The doughnut is deep-fried, filled with jelly or custard, and then topped with powdered sugar.
I am going to make this doughnut for the event, Asian Food Fest hosted by Shannon for Just As Delish featuring food from Western Asia. Hop over to Shannon's blog to read more about it.
