Do not add any dry flour while kneading.
5. You will get smooth dough like this. grease the bowl with oil and put dough in it. apply some oil on top of dough. Cover it with cling film and now you can do it 2 ways, keep it in fridge over night and let it rise slowly, or keep it on room temperature for 2 hours.

9. Keep donuts on butter paper and let them rise again for 1-2 hours. I cut square shape butter paper so its easy to lift them when they rise again and do not loose their shape... Also put them in oil with the butter paper and then take out the butter paper...and the donuts will remain in their perfect shape.
