Badusha Sweet

Badusha or Balushahi Sweet


  • Maida - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
  • Curd - 2 tbsps
  • Ghee - 1/4 cup ( melted )
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Water - as required
  • For sugar syrup:- Sugar - 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Water - 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Lemon Juice - 1/2 tsp
  • Cardamom Powder - pinch
  • Vegetable oil - 4 cup


Step 1

Let us prepare the dough for Badusha Sweet: Take a bowl and sift maida, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and mix well.

Step 2

Add curd & ghee and mix with the maida. It should resemble bread crumbs.

Step 3

Now slowly add little water and make a soft dough. Leave aside and cover with towel for at least one hour.

Step 4

Preparation for Sugar Syrup: In a vessel, add sugar, water and allow the sugar to dissolve on medium flame.

Step 5

Add lemon juice and cardamom powder and turn off flame.

Step 6

Reduce flame to low, allow the sugar syrup to thicken lightly. The syrup should be sticky on touch and it should reach one string consistency.

Step 7

Badusha Sweet Preparation: To prepare badusha, (do not knead the dough) pinch off lemon sized dough and roll into balls. Flatten them a little and make a dimple in the middle.

Step 8

Heat oil for deep frying in a heavy bottomed vessel till hot but not smoking hot.

Step 9

Add a small piece of dough into the oil and if it sizzles and comes to the surface, the oil is ready for deep frying.Turn off flame .

Step 10

Now slowly add 3 to 4 badushas into the hot oil and allow them to rise to the surface of the oil. Once the badushas surface to the top of the oil, turn on flame to low and cook on both sides till golden brown.

Step 11

Cook the badushas on low flame only till they achieve a golden shade. They have to cook slowly so that the insides are completely cooked and do not rush through the process by trying to cook them on high flame as they will remain uncooked inside.

Step 12

Using a slotted ladle, remove the badushas from the hot oil and place them gently in the warm sugar syrup.

Step 13

Once the Badusha is dipped in the syrup, use a ladle and allow it to sink inside the syrup such that it is coated all over. Then remove Badusha sweet from the syrup

Step 14

Yummy Badusha is ready to serve and can store in an air tight container.
