Badusha Recipe

Badusha Recipe with step-by-step photos. Badusha is a classic Indian sweet that is perfect for all of you sweet-tooths out there who are looking for a new and interesting dessert recipe for your festive dinner plates! In South India, it is called Badusha and in North India, it is known as Balushahi. It has a strong resemblance to the glazed donuts but varies with its layered texture and crunchy taste. The outside is crisp and the inside is so soft and slightly flaky. Preparation of Badusha is tricky. But I’ll break it down for you. So friends enjoy making this Badusha for Easter, Tamil New Year or Diwali!

Furthermore, I would like to share some tips to make a perfect Badusha. Firstly,  mix the flour gently by using your hand.
Then sprinkle cold water gradually and begin to mix it. Add 1 tbsp water at a time and mix well until you get a soft dough. Don’t knead like chapati. Just mix and bring everything together to the dough.

Secondly, while frying, make sure the flame is in low heat. To check the correct temperature of the oil, place a tiny part of the dough into the medium hot oil. It should come up gradually. Immediately, switch off the heat or transfer the oil pan to the kitchen tabletop and place 4 to 5 badusha into the oil. They will expand in oil while frying, so make sure not to overcrowd. After 2 mins, transfer the oil pan to the stove over low heat. Fry until light golden brown then turns each badusha, and fry until golden and crisp. It takes a minimum of 12 to 14 mins to depend on the size and the intensity of the heat.

Finally, the consistency of sugar syrup defines the texture of Badusha. Cook till the syrup becomes sticky or you get 1/2 string consistency or even 1 string consistency.
