    Badhusha

    Generally all will like 'Badhusha' a less sweet...............sweet, but afraid to prepare in home because they think it is so 'tedious' to prepare :) But it is not correct. you can make Soft, layered Badhushas easily.here is the recipe. please try and give me a feed back :)

    Ingredients:

    1 cup Maida / all purpose flour / self raising flour
    1/4 tea spoon Backing soda
    1 pinch cooking soda ( in Tamil we call this as 'aappa soda' )
    1/2 spoon powdered sugar
    1 table spoon thick curd
    1/8 cup liquid ghee
    1/2 tea spoon oil ( any cooking oil )

    To make sugar syrup :

    1 1/2 sugar
    1 1/2 water
    rose essence or cardamom powder

    Oil to fry

    Method:

    First sieve maida, baking soda and cooking soda.
    Put them in a big vessel and add ghee and oil.
    Mix well.
    It must come like 'bread crumbles'
    In a small cup put curd and sugar.
    Mix it well and add it to the flour, ghee mix.
    And again mix all of them well.
    If needed add very very little water to make a soft dough.
    Just keep the dough as it is for 1 hour.
    In a deep pan, pour water and sugar to make 'sugar syrup'
    Mix well now and then.
    Bring it 'one string syrup' and add cardamom powder and remove from the fire.
    Now keep oil in the stove and keep it in sim fire.
    To fry Badhusha we need medium fire; let it be in sim till we prepare the dough into badhushas.
    Now take the dough but DONT KNEAD THE FERMENTED DOUGH.
    Make 10 badhushas of normal size or you can make 15 'mini badhushas' for the given quantity:)
    So divide the dough as per your wish and make a soft ball out of that.
    Keep the ball in your palm and press it and make a impression with your thumb.
    Like this do all the dough and keep the stove in medium flame.
    Now put one small pinch of the dough in the oil.
    It must sit in the bottom and must come very slowly to the top of the oil.
    Then it is the correct heat.
    So you can put the badhushas in the oil and fry them both the sides without any urgent.
    They will become big and when they become golden colour, you can remove and Put them in the sugar syrup.
    That is all, repeat the next batch and when the next batch is ready to put in the sugar syrup , remove the first batch and keep it in a plate.
    Actually we have to wait for 12 hours to see white crystallized sugar on Badhushas, but you can taste them and see the layer by divide them.
    Your yummy Badhushas are ready to taste :)

    Note : I just prepared them last week and Here I am sharing the photos. And also I want to tell you people one thing here. I gave instructions through google talk to my Daughter in Law who is in London and she also did it. YES. So without doubt you can also try. while reading only you will feel this is very big but you can fry and eat this with in 10 min.
    Next time you can make more and keep them for more than 12 hours :)

    And one more thing, if you want to avoid the crystallized sugar on your Badhushas, please add 1/2 spoon lemon juice while preparing sugar syrup. That will give a 'glossy finish' to the badhushas. ok?
