Badusha - Sweet

This is my favorite sweet. My MIL used to make it very often and she is very good at it. This time, I learned the recipe from her. Even though it was not professional like hers, it came out very well. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:-
  1. Maida flour - 1 1/2 cup
  2. Unsalted butter - 3 tbsp
  3. Baking soda - pinch
  4. Oil to deep fry
  5. Sugar - 1 cup (acc to taste)
  6. Pachakarpooram - a pinch
  7. Coconut-1 tbsp

First add baking soda to the butter and whisk it for few mts. You will see bubbles forming. Now add the flour to it and make it a soft dough adding required amount of water. Keep it aside for few mts. In the mean time, put the sugar in a heavy bottomed skillet, add a cup of water and make it a semi-thick syrup***. Add pacha karpooram to the sugar syrup and mix it well. In the mean time, pre heat oil and make small patties out the dough and deep fry it till it becomes golden brown keeping the heat in medium flame. Put the patties in the sugar syrup and soak it well. Remove it from the syrup and put it in a vessel. Now pour the remaining syrup on top of each badusha and garnish it with coconut.

*** - Keep a cup of water near you. Pour a drop of sugar syrup in it. If it dissolves, then the surup is not ready. If it doesn't dissolve and forms a small soft ball, it means the syrup is ready

MY MIL too made Badusha for this Diwali....urs look perfect too..
Vidhya Karanji is not same as empanada....the similarity is the shape and not the stuffing..Karanjis are sweet and empanada are like savoury snacks
Interesting fact is it is inspired from our very own Karanjis...

Wow...its one of my fave sweets. I am definitely going to try it sometime...thanks for the recipe. The butter you are talking about is it melted if so how hot shud it be when adding baking soda?

Vidhya said...

actually I didn't heat the butter. It was outside in room temperature (basically I forgot to keep it inside!) So I just added the baking soda to it.
