31 BADUSHA

Badusha/Badsha


I made this sweet for Diwali which turned out really well. My hubby loved them and asked me to prepare again for a potluck dinner that day. Even though I was tired after all the preparations, I somehow managed to make an other batch. My friends just loved them and everything got over in no time.


Maida/All purpose flour - 2 cups
Baking Soda - 3/4 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Melted Butter - 3/4 th cup
Chopped nuts for garnishing
Oil for deep frying

For the syrup:-
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 1 3/4 cup
Rose essence - few drops( optional)


Sieve maida/salt and soda 2 times and transfer to a mixing bowl. To it add the melted butter and mix well. Add little water little by little and make a soft dough. No need to press really well. Just mixing it softly is enough. Cover with a wet cloth and leave it aside for 15 - 20 minutes.
Meanwhile combine sugar and water in an other vessel and heat it on a stove and start melting. The sugar has to melt and wait till the froth has left. Then reduce flame and keep heating for another 5 minutes. Add the rose essence now if you like the flavor. Keep the syrup still on under low flame. By this time you can start rolling the dough. Take a small lime size of ball and roll. Just flatten it little bit and press in the middle with your thumb or index finger( to make a small hole in the middle without reaching the other end).


Heat oil for deep frying and fry the prepared ball in medium high till they are golden brown. Remove them out and keep it aside for just few seconds( May be around 10 seconds- as adding it very hot might break your sweet and loose the shape) and add them in the prepared syrup. Just soak them for 2 minutes( not more than that).You can press lightly and turn them over in between. Remove and keep it aside. Later top it with the chopped nuts and arrange in a serving plate/tray and enjoy.
