Sree Krishna Sweet style "Badhusha" - a Diwali extravaganza

Wish u all a very happy and prosperous diwali.May god bless u with abundant wealth and health.
U want to prepare krishna sweets- melt in mouth style badusha,then here comes the exact recipe to follow.The badhushas were soft as well as flaky.This recipe is a fool proof recipe and can be followed as it is to prepare soft badhushas.

Recipe source:
Saras Kitchen

1.Maida / all purpose flour     -   2 cups
2.Oil                                        -   1/4 cup
3.Ghee                                     -    1/2 cup
4.Sugar                                    -     2 tsp
5.Salt                                       -     a pinch
6.Cooking soda                        -    a pinch
7.Water                                    -     1 to 2 ounces

For Syrup:
1.Sugar                                    -      1 cup
2.Water                                    -      1 cup
3.Rose water                            -      1 tsp (optional)

* Take a mixing bowl,add flour,cooking soda,salt and sugar.Mix it well.
* Melt the ghee and let it cool for some time.Bcoz,when we add hot ghee,then there are chances for the badhusha to become brittle.Mix the cooled ghee with oil and pour it to the flour.
* Add little water and prepare a soft dough like that of a chapathi dough.Cover and rest it for an hour.
* After an hour,the dough wud have been incorporated well,as it intakes all the ghee.Divide them into equal sized balls .Pat each ball and slightly press it in the centre,this releases some pressure,while frying.Keep these flattened balls to rest for 5 mins.Cover it with a muslin cloth.

* Place a pan of oil and let it get medium hot.Now slowly drop the badushas into the oil and let it cook completely in medium fire. But make sure,the oil is not less hot,which wud result in breaking of the badhushas.Make sure we have enough oil,so that the badhushas will have space to float.
* Slowly flip the badhushas and cook till it gets golden brown colour.
* Immediately,drop the badhushas in sugar syrup and let it soak for a minute ,flip it around for another minute.Take it from the syrup and keep it on a plate to cool completely.Once cooled.store it in air tight container.

Preparing the sugar syrup:
* Take a wide mouthed pan,add sugar and water.Bring it to boil.After few minutes, take the syrup between ur 2 fingures,it shud form a string,this is the right consistancy.
* Other way to chk the consistancy is,take a plate and place the syrup,it will be like a pearl.If u tilt the plate also,it wont drop.
* Once the syrup reaches one string consistancy,then turn off the heat and add the rose water.

It was yummy and flaky.Resulting in immediate plate emptying.

Dear Savitha
How are you? WIsh you a very happy new year. I was ( and will be ) off blog for 3 months. Now here to see what all I have missed. I have always failed in making Badusha or Balusai..it would be either hard like a stone or break in the oil ...and finally gave up trying long long back. But now I am quite hopeful that I will succeed after reading your recipe and detailed method. The Thattai and malpua recipes are amazing. I have eaten Thattai but never knew how to make it. Will give a try for sure. I like it.
Let me see what all I have missed
Have a nice week ahead

hi savitha
I am a great fan of ur site... yetsreday i tried the bhadhusa but once i put the patty in oil the bhadhusa started dissolving in oil completely.. can you please tell me why does this happen ???

Unknown said...

Hi Girija ,
Thank u for trying out this recipe.But sorry it didnt come out properly.Two things which come to my mind after your question is
* Have you cooled the ghee before adding it to the dough ? Bcoz,if u add hot ghee to the flour,then the badushas will break.
* Have you heated the oil well and turned it to medium ?Bcoz, adding badhushas to less hot oil will make it break and melt it.If you fry the badhushas in piping hot oil,this will make the outer part crispy,but the inner is under cooked.So heat the oil very well and bring it to medium and fry the badhushas in it throughout the process.
Hope this helps you.If not shoot me ,will reply u.
