Badusha recipe - Badhusha Recipe - Simple Indian Sweet recipe - Diwali sweet recipes - Indian Doughnut Recipe

My 2nd son loves badhusha it is one of his most favourite sweet. We have one person who does this so well I know him from my primary school days. After starting the blog my son has been asking me to give it a try. Last time when I was in India I noted down the recipe from him. I have made it couple of times since then. It came out pretty good

Ingredients

All Purpose flour / Maida - 1.5 cups
Butter - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1.5 tablespoon
Curd - 1.5 tablespoon
Baking soada - 1/4 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Oil for deep frying

For sugar syrup

Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 3/4 cup
Lemon juice - 1/4 teaspoon (I forgot to add that's why u see sugar crystals)
Cardamom powder - A pinch

Method:

Melt butter. Add curd, oil, sugar, cooking soda to melted butter. Mix well. Sieve the all purpose flour. Add the butter mix to the flour.  Bring together with the hands the dough will look like crumbs. Add water little by little to make it to smooth dough. Keep it aside for 10 mins
Divide the dough into equal lemon size balls. Just flatten it using your palm and keep it aside
Heat the oil in deep curved kada. When you add pinch of dough it should raise immediately then the oil is read for frying. Add couple of badhusha and switch off the flame. Let it cook for a while till "shhhh" sound subside and bubbles disappear. Then switch on the flame again. And cook the badusha in medium low flame till golden brown. This is very important to get flaky badusha. 
While cooking badusha you can prepare the sugar syrup. Add sugar and water in a pan and boil it. When the sugar syrups forms to a single string consistency add cardamom powder.
Once Badhusha is cooked drain the oil well. add add it to sugar keep it immersed in the sugar syrup for 2 mins and take it out. Arrange it in a tray or container.
Repeat the process for all badhusha.. Enjoy it
