Badusha | Bhadushah Easy Diwali Sweet

Badusha
Badusha, a sweet with slightly flaky texture  is one of a popular sweet in South India. After coming to USA, I prepare my favourite sweets in home. Home-made sweets and savories are always best. Badusha | Bhadushah is also known as Balushahi in North India. Bhadushah can be compared to doughnuts and prepared using All purpose flour. Small balls of dough are deep fried in oil and dipped in sugar syrup.  Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Sweet Badusha Recipe.


Preparation Time:  20 mins
Cook Time: 20  mins
Yields: 10 Nos

Lemon juice1/4 tsp

  • Shape the dough into small balls of lemon size. Flatten the balls and make a dent in the centre of the ball using thumb finger.

  • Heat water and sugar in a pan. Allow the sugar syrup to boil and once the sugar syrup reaches one string consistency add cardamom powder and lemon juice. One string consistency means when the sugar syrup is hold between fore finger and thumb,  a thin single string should form. Lemon juice prevents crystallization of sugar syrup.

  • Heat oil in a pan for frying. To Check whether oil is hot , drop a small dough if the dough rises up then oil hotness is perfect. Turn to possible lowest flame available. Add badusha in hot oil. Badusha will rise up in the hot oil and when the bubbles disappear turn and cook on other side. Fry till badusha turn golden colour.

Tips:
  • Don't make a very soft dough. It is good if there are very small cracks in the flatten balls. When dipped in sugar syrup, syrup accumulates in the small cracks and badusha tastes very sweeter. Make sure there are no bigger cracks, it will lead to breaking of badusha.
  • Always use possible lowest flame for frying. 
  • Badusha will increase in size after frying, as we are using baking soda.
  • Lemon juice is added to avoid crystallization of sugar.
