Badusha

Badushas for Deepavali




This is my entry for RCI Tamil Festivals hosted by Viji of http://vcuisine.blogspot.com/

Ingredients:

Maida-2 cups
Ghee-1cup
Yogurt-1cup
Sugar-2 cups
Baking powder-1 teaspoon
Cardamom powder-1 teaspoon
Oil for deep fry






Method:

1. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a broad bowl and add two tablespoons of sugar to it.

2. Knead the flour into pliable dough using the ghee and yogurt. If necessary, sprinkle some water and make sure that the dough is softer than chapathi dough.

3. Leave the dough for about thirty minutes and boil a cup of water with the remaining sugar in a heavy-bottomed vessel.

4. When the syrup forms into one string consistency, add the cardamom powder and turn off the stove.

5. Divide the dough into lemon sized balls. Flatten them and press in the centre using your fore finger.

6. Heat the oil in a frying pan. When the oil is hot, place four or five badshas and immediately lower the flame.

7. The badushas will then become brown outside and at the same time, will be cooked nicely inside.

8. Complete frying all the badushas in batches and keep them in the syrup for a while to absorb the syrup.

9. Take them out from the syrup and let them dry.

10. Garnish the badushas in the centre with the dry sugar syrup. Delicious badushas are ready…..


Note: Do not fry the badushas on high flame; they will not be cooked properly inside.

lovely entry, Vijaya! I'm first time to your blog thro' Viji's round-up. Actually, I must admit that i tried making badusha for the event and something went wrong... they dissolved while frying. Your recipe is crystal-clear and you've got such a nice colour too:) Thanks for sharing the sweet with us...

Daily Meals said...

Thanks Latha! Initially it happened with me also and I realized that I have added more baking powder. Everybody will learn by trial and error only. Don't give up. Good luck to neaxt attempt.
