HI all,

This recipe was taken from Padma's recipe. I was following her blog for quite some time and wanted to try this recipe for long.

As I normally do, I just prepared only half the quantity of the original quantity mentioned by her.

Here.. I have used Ghee instead of butter. The original recipe asks for butter. And the original recipe says that the fried badusha should be left inside the syrup for just 2 - 3 mins. But I felt that was not soaked enough, I allowed them to sit for 1 - 2 hrs time. By them the badusha's were soft and tasted awesome. I didnt get the pic to look the same way of how padma's pics looks.. yet.. I am still in a doubt if this was what that has to be done. But anyways let me tell you what I did here!!!!!!

Anyways if the recipe didnt come out well.. Please forgive me as I also tried this recipe for the first time. Though the taste was good.. Iam still not happy about the softness of the badusha's

Here is the recipe:

Maida - 1 cup
baking soda - 3/8th tsp
salt - a pinch
ghee - 1/2 cup
oil - to deep fry
sugar - 1 cup
water - 1 cup
cardamom seeds - powdered - 1/2 tsp

- seive salt, maida, baking soda twice
- to that add the melted ghee and mix well.
- that will resemble bread crumbs
- to that now add water little by little to make a soft dough
- leave that to rest for 20 mins
- in another vessel add water and sugar and bring it to a boil
- when the sugar boils to a thick syrup consistancy add the cardamom powder and leave the syrup to simmer
- in another pan add oil and allow that to become hot
- meanwhile make balls from the dough
- flatten that and press then in the center
- deep fry the flattened balls in oil in medium flame and make sure its cooked and doesnt get browned
- now let the fried badusha cool for a min or two
- drop them in the hot sugar syrup and allow that to soak in the syrup until the syrup is absorbed
- serve.
