BADHUSHA

Badusha is a sweet prepared using Maida (All purpose-flour). Badhushas are simply fried balls dipped into sugar syrup. It is similar to Gulab Jamun. But the only difference is that Gulab Jamuns are served with sugar syrup, whereas Badhushas are dipped only once in the sugar syrup. Sounds Good, Right?? Tastes Yummy too...!! Do try and enjoy its taste!!  

MAKES 10-12 BADHUSHAS


INGREDIENTS:


Maida - 2cup
Butter/Vanaspati (Dalda) - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 to 3/4 cup

Ghee - 1 tsp
Curd - 4 tsp
Cooking Soda - 2 pinch
Oil - To fry
Elachi - For flavour




Badhusha


METHOD:
  • Add butter (or Vanaspati) and cooking soda in a bowl and scrub with your palms for 5 minutes.
  • When the mixture turns creamy, add maida, ghee & curd to the mixture.
  • Now, without giving much pressure mix all the items well, into a dough.
  • Make small balls, flatten them and press in the centre with your thumb finger.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add these flattened balls and fry till they turn brown. (*) (Medium flame)
  • Add sugar and water to another pan.
  • When it starts boiling, add a tsp of milt to the syrup. This removes the dirt present in the sugar. Remove the scum from the syrup. 
  • Boil until "ONE-STRING CONSISTENCY".
  • Now switch off the flame and add elachi powder.
  • Add all the fried balls to the sugar syrup.
  • Turn the balls frequently for few minutes, so that the sugar syrup gets coated all around them.
  • Now remove them and leave for a while, for the sugar syrup to freeze.
  • BADHUSHA is ready!!

(*) Pierce a small hole in each ball while frying them in the oil, so that the inner portion of  Badhushas cook evenly.
