Ingredients to make Balushahi

  • 1 and 1/2 cup maida/flour

How to make Balushahi

  1. Sieve the maida/ flour and soda.
  2. Add the ghee and mix it with lightly with your hands till you get a crumble like texture. Now add curd and make a soft dough. (If needed add a little water.)
  3. Make small balls of this dough and press it in the middle with your finger.
  4. Heat the oil on a low-medium temperature and deep fry these balls till they turn golden brown in colour.
  5. Make the sugar syrup, then add these fried balls and let them soak for 15-20 mins in the syrup.
  6. Take them out in plate and garnish them with chopped pistachios.

My Tip:

Dont fry them on a high flame. Once they are completely dry you can store them for 15 days.
