Preparation Time: 30 mins | Cook time: 20 mins | Makes: 12
Maida – 1 & 1/2 cup
Water – 1/4 cup (approximately)
Butter + Oil – 1/4 cup+ 1/8 cup
Sugar – 1/2 tsp
Curd – 1& 1/2 tsp
Cooking soda – 2 pinches
Oil – for deep frying
Sugar – 3/4 cup
Water – 3/4 cup
Cardamon powder – 2 pinches
Lemon Juice – 1 tsp
- Take a bowl add melted butter, oil, salt and cooking soda. Mix all this well and make it frothy. Now add the flour little by little.
- Add water carefully little by little. Ensure the dough is soft. You can also adjust the water level but make sure the dough should be in the consistency as shown in the picture. Knead the dough atleast for 10mins in order to make it soft.
- The final output of dough should be without cracks. Make small balls as shown in the picture. I made 12 balls out of the given measurement.
- Take a ball and pinch a edge and fold it inwards direction. Repeat the same process to get the design as shown in the picture. You can also make doughnut shapes if you find hard to design like this.
- Simultaneously, add sugar to a vessel and add water to it. Keep stirring the syrup. Boil the sugar syrup until you reach one string consistency. You can also cross verify by pouring a drop of this syrup in little water, it should not dissolve. Add cardamom powder and squeeze lemon juice once the syrup reach the correct consistency. Adding lemon juice helps to avoid crystallization of syrup.
- Heat oil and check with the pinch of dough. If it rises then the oil is in right tempeture. Now add the badusha. Give 5 to 8 minutes to cook it well and you should get badusha browning as shown in the picture.
- Drain in the paper towel and add it immediately to the sugar syrup. Leave it for an hour to let the badusha soak in sugar syrup.
8. Badushas are ready to be served. Enjoy the sweet.
