Hello dears ..
I am back here after a long gap 😁 .. Was thinking of restarting my blog from long .. Better late than never right..Now in YouTube subtitle issues are also started . So its the right time to restart .. In this special occasion I am here with a famous but easy sweet ,that too Diwali special sweet .. Badusha | Balushahi .. I will give u the video link also ,so u can refer the procedure ..
It is a Mughlai dish and usually made for Diwali and other festivals.
One of the traditional Indian sweets – Its a deep-fried Indian Mithai.
In North India its widely known as Balushahi but in South as Badusha
It is made using all-purpose flour and later dipped in Sugar syrup.
Crispy from outside and moist, tender and flaky from inside, it is one of my favorite Indian sweets.
Badusha are actually quite simple to make once you get the hang of it. Soft dough balls are deep-fried and dunked in a sticky syrup, very much like doughnuts. The syrup is usually flavored with cardamom and saffron
It is not wrong to call badusha “Indian style doughnuts”. There is no yeast involved in the dough though, just a bit of leavening agent like baking soda and some yogurt to activate it.
All Purpose Flour |Maida – 1 1/4 cup or 200gm
Ghee -1/4cup or 5tbsp
Curd -1/4cup or 4tbsp
Baking Soda – 1/4tsp or Baking Powder -1/2tsp
Oil – for frying
For Sugar Syrup
Water – 3/4 cup
Sugar-3/4 to 1 cup
Cardamom – 1 or powder 1/4 tsp
Lemon Juice -1/2tsp
Salt – one pinch
Sieve maida ,baking soda ,salt and sugar together and keep aside .
In another bowl add ghee and curd ,beat well .. (The ghee should be melted but not hot )
To that add maida and slowly mix with out much pressure ..No need to knead like chapati dough . Simply bind it together ..
Add extra water if we need ..Here I added 1 tbsp of cold water to get the perfect consistency ..
Cover the dough with a wet cloth for 15 to 20 minutes .
Now Prepare Making Sugar Syrup..
To a saucepan add sugar and water along with salt ,cardamom and saffron .. U can skip Saffron if u don’t have ..
I cooked the syrup for 4 minutes in medium flame and switched off the gas ..
Then add lemon juice and keep aside .
Now after the resting time ,we need to gently knead the dough for 1 minute.
Pinch a small portion and make small a ball and flatten it ..
In the centre make a dent .
Make 5-6 badusha ready for frying and close the remaining dough with the wet cloth ..
Heat the oil ..
The oil should be medium hot .
Drop few badushas in the medium hot oil and then reduce the flame to low .. Cook in low flame .. It will take time to cook .Otherwise inside of the badusha will remain raw ..
Fry them patiently till we get a fully cooked nice golden badusha ..
When it is fully cooked we can feel the outer covering to be crispy and golden colour .. Take one out and cut open and see ..
For me it took 15 minutes in low flame to cook perfectly ..
But depends upon each stove .. But don’t burn them ok .. 😃😃
Take the fried badusha from the oil and keep aside in a kitchen tissue or a strainer ..
Fry the remaining badushas in batches .. First u have to increase the oil temperature to medium and then to low ..
After frying all the badusha, we have to reheat the sugar syrup ..
When the syrup is medium hot switch off the gas and immerse few of the badusha into it .. for 5 minutes .. If u want a gulab jamun type badusha u can immerse them for 15 minutes too ..
But I prefer to immerse them for 5 ,minutes only ..
Then take out the first batch and repeat the process with rest of the badusha.
Garnish with Pistachio and badam ..
So Easy Tasty Badusha is ready ..
U can make a small portion for trial before making bulk .. So u can make them with more confident ..
So enjoy dears ..
