making of bhadusha sweet

This disc shaped sweet have won every Indian’s heart by its distinct taste and aroma. Flakiness and softness add a special uniqueness to this awesome sweet.I tried making  of badusha sweet first during last Diwali.Actually I tried two variation one using butter and the other using ghee . Both came out well having their own  textures.”Traditional Balushahi” well known as “Badusha” have won great appreciations in my home.I have missed making of badusha  sweet at home for so many year’s.(spelling may be either badhusha or badusha)

making of bhadusha sweetOf-course I have tasted it in functions and shops.In shops they fry badusha with ghee which we feel little heavier than frying it in oil.I personally like the one that is fried in oil which is lighter.For the sugar syrup I add rose water and saffron which is the must with a pinch of cardamon powder.when badusha absorbs the sugar syrup the rose water and saffron’s flavors are absorbed deep inside which gives a divine taste and aroma.We must quickly toss the whole batch before the sugar crystallizes as I like the syrup to coat the badusha to some extent.Here I have made the dough using ghee.The badusha should be cooked in medium heat so that it is cooked through and light golden color.This recipe is well appreciated for its wonderful softness and don’t knead the dough too much.

Notes

I have not added lemon juice to prevent crystallization because I want the sugar to coat the badhusha. I have made mini badhusha's but you can make it bigger. The badhusha's should be quickly mixed otherwise it crystallizes soon. Plan accordingly and make it on time to never miss a step
