Balushahi/ Badusha

Ingredients to make Balushahi/ Badusha

  • 1 cup maida/ APF
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
  • 1 tbsp curd
  • 1 pinch soda bi carb
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • Water as required to make dough
  • Oil/ ghee for deep frying
  • 1 cup sugar(for syrup)
  • 1/2 cup water(for syrup)
  • Chopped pistachios and kesar for garnish
  • Chopped almonds for garnish

How to make Balushahi/ Badusha

  1. Take maida, elaichi powder, curd, soda, ghee in a bowl. Add water as required to make a soft dough. Do not knead too much. Keep aside for 15-20 minutes
  2. Heat ghee/ oil for deep frying. Make lemon size balls and make a thumb impression in the middle of it
  3. Deep fry these balls on very slow flame. This may take about 20-25 minutes to properly fry on all sides
  4. If the heat is more, switch off the flame for 2-3 minutes .
  5. When the balushahi are golden brown from all sides remove on a kitchen towel and keep aside for 5 minutes.
  6. Dip the fried balushahi in warm sugar syrup for 5 minutes. Strain and arrange on a plate. Garnish with chopped pistachios , almonds and kesar threads. Serve after at least 1 hour.
  7. For sugar syrup: Mix sugar and water in a pan and keep stirring till sugar dissolves. Let it boil to get a 1 1/2 string consistency.
My Tip: Do not knead the dough too much. After resting dough for 15-20 mins, puch the dough and make balls with light hands.
