badusha

I love badusha from my childhood,the time I even hate sweets! The reason is its not too sweet and mild in sweetness. Also I love both home made badusha and the sweet stall one,both has a unique taste and texture. My mom makes very often,if some relatives visit us or if we were visiting them,then she will make this in a jiffy,I used to help her.
But this recipe and method are different and bit time consuming,than my mom’s version,still I loved to try it out for its texture,so I tried,I tried two years back for Diwali and this diwali too I tried. It came out good without disappointing me and vj loved it. This time I even passed some to Jeyashri and she too love it.
I made now for a special occasion,our anniversary.. And then,I wanted to have it in my blog with my measurements,so I tried today to click stepwise pictures. It came out very well.And why I made this for blogging sake…no,not only for that,this is for two special friends,I will update that in facebook later. The original method and recipe where I referred for is Jasu’s Blog. Please see her blog for the detailed method to fold the ends if you set to try this out of your own. This recipe gives a good texture to the badusha if we just follow the given method.

Badusha recipe / Badhusha recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweet
Prep Time: 30 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Makes: 12

Ingredients


Maida  1 & 1/2 cup 
Butter + Oil  1/4 cup+ 1/8 cup 
Sugar  1/2 tsp 
Curd  1& 1/2 tsp 
Cooking soda/sodium bi carbonate  2 pinches 
Water  1/4 cup (approx.)
Oil  for deep frying 


For the syrup


Sugar 1/2 cup
Water Just to immerse the sugar
Elachi powder 2 pinches
Saffron Optional,A pinch
Lemon Juice 1 tsp


badusha-recipe

Method:

  1. Melt butter and add oil,sugar,curd and sodium –bi-carb. to it and use a whisk to mix well,to make it almost frothy.Add the flour to it.
  2. b1-horz
  3. Mix well to make it crumbly. Add water to make it dough,please be careful when adding,the 1/4 cup is what I used,it was just right,still you adjust accordingly. Make it to a smooth dough without any lumps.
  4. b2-horz
  5. I kept on kneading for sometime to get a smooth dough..may be 10 mins,I made 11 small lemon sized balls out of it. You can adjust the size accordingly.
  6. b3-horz
  7. Now take a ball and pinch the edges and fold it inwards to make rims decoratively as shown in the picture.  Repeat to finish everything and keep covered.
  8. b4-horz
  9. Meanwhile add sugar to a pan and just add water to immerse it and boil till one string consistency ,i.e; if you pour in little water,it should not dissolve and it should lay a fine thread or you can check between your forefinger and thumb by swiping the syrup from back of the ladle you use for stirring.. One more important point is not to keep stirring the syrup as stirring will make the syrup crystalize. Add saffron,elachi if desired and squeeze the lemon juice lastly. Heat oil just enough,check it by adding a pinch of batter,if it rises immediately,then its just right. Dont let the oil fume at any point.
  10. b5-horz
  11. Add some five badushas,we prepared ,carefully in to the oil. Remove from fire and let it get cooked in the pre heated oil. Approximately it wud take 5 mins.
  12. At one stage the badushas float, then again keep the kadai on fire and cook in medium-low flame,adjust heat at the end to make it golden brown,for me it took around 5-8 mins.
  13. b6-horz
  14. Drain in a paper towel and immediately add to the hot sugar syrup,to cover the badusha ,I did this in batches 2-3 at a time.  Leave for a minute and then drain the badushas to a greased surface.
  15. b7-horz

Notes:

  • If your badushas dissolve in oil as you are frying then any one of these is excess : butter or oil or cooking soda or water. So add more flour to the dough and knead again to troubleshoot the problem.
  • If you reduce the quantity of butter or oil,then there will be drastic change in the texture of the badushas too,it will turn hard or crispy. You wont get the layers inside too.
  • Badushas will be nice after cooling down,but I found,after a day or two it tastes even better ..
  • Adding lemon juice is to prevent crystallization of the sugar syrup.
  • Don’t hurry up while frying,please do as mentioned,otherwise the texture gets affected too.
  • consume within a week.Do not refrigerate.
  • You can simply make the shapes like a doughnut(mini) , a faster way to do :)
  • b8-horz

VIDEO UPDATED TO SHOW HOW TO FOLD :
One more video


After it cools down,the sugar syrup should have turned non sticky,transfer to an clean container.  And enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hi...even sweet haters will get tempted by your picture..its awesome. I tried this badhsha but i dont where i went wrong..when i try to deep fry all the dough got dissolved into the oil... Can you pls suggest me

    ReplyDelete
  100. Hi priya,this could be coz of two things,one is the oil must have been very hot,that is after you drop badushas,you must remove from fire and keep some time OFF fire till it floats...
    Second thing is the butter+oil quantity must have been too much... Next time make sure about these things,I am sure it will come out good..

    ReplyDelete
  101. Hey thanks for your comments. Sure i will try out and let you know. I love badhsha from my childhood, after visiting your recipe i got so tempted and desperately want to try that so i tried for diwali but it didn't turnout good. Everything got dissolved in the oil even i thought it should be wrong measurement of ghee and oil. Thanks dear.I love all your recipes and your website. Keep up your good work.

  107. Hi raks, iam a gr8 fan of your blog, tried your hotel sambhar and it came out well, i stay in malaysia. i have a doubtdo we need to heat the butter to get it melt or just beat it well so that it becomes melt, kindly clarify. and also a suggestion can u also provide us the details as to how many servings your recipe comes, so that it will be easy for adjust accordint to our family size. u rock rak ;)

    ReplyDelete

  109. Hi Rak ,
    Y'day i made it , it was wonderful happy that i can also make badhusha. Long back i had try but that time it didn't came well it was hard{badhusha} and the sweet didn't entered in it. That time i thought not to prepare it again but after seeing the pic i could not stop my self to make it . thanks dear it was wonderful my hus liked it very much.[ to aviod crystallization u hav told to put lime juice i had put but then to
    it got crystall in sugar syrup ]

    ReplyDelete
  110. Krupa, Sorry I just saw your comment, Just heat the butter,when its starts melting remove from fire,dont let it get heated...For the given measurement you can get 11 or 12 badushas :)Thanks for the compliments!!

    ReplyDelete
  111. Radha, Thanks for your feed back,glad it came out well. And regarding crystallizing,lemon juice will prevent forming the white dry layer,thats all,there may be a little grainy texture though.

    ReplyDelete

  119. Hi Raks, Badushah looks sooooo good..I was so tempeted & tried them out immediately but most of my badushas got broken in the oil, sucked a lot of oil etc..I had my heat on very low too..donno wat the problem was..any suggestions? Too much Baking Soda??

    ReplyDelete
  120. Hi preethi, too much soda or may be too much of butter/oil also results this... If it breaks in oil,next time just add 2 or 3 tblsp of flour again and knead to try again,it will work...

    ReplyDelete
  121. Raji...You are the bestest...badhushas came out so well...thanks for the recipe...i have posted this in my blog with a link to this post :)

    Thanks

  127. Shalu baking soda and cooking soda are same. It's not baking powder. Let me know how it turned out to be.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Hi Raji,
    thanks for the recipe.. though i had a problem of hardening of the end product.. it did not turn out fluffy like ur photo..i did not do the process of removing the kadai from the fire after dropping the badushas..did that cause the problem??
    rgds,Rajalakshmi

    ReplyDelete
  129. Hi Raji,
    I am not 100% sure about not puffing. But Why we remove the kadai from fire is to cook the badushas slowly so that the flaky layers form inside.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Happy Diwali to you and your loved ones...A big "Thank you" for lighting up my life with your perfect recipies, esp. the Badhusha..it's amazingly perfect..!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Thank you very much for the detailed instructions. Found it very helpful while making badhushas. Mine did not turn out perfectly. It did not puff(probably my cooking soda is not very fresh?) and regarding the flakiness,it was not very flaky probably because I did not start off the oil heating at a very low heat. Could these be my problems?

    ReplyDelete

    If it happens next time, try adding more flour (1/4 cup) And knead well again and try. If needed, sprinkle a tsp of water. That happens because if the ghee/oil/cooking soda is too much. Hope it will help :) And I love your confidence!

  137. Hi I tried these came out really well except the sweet part. The syrup would not go in so it was not sweet. could u pls help. Thanks.

  138. Hi priya, was your syrup hot enough ? otherwise next time, try adding the badushas when it is hot to the hot syrup. This will sure help.

  141. Hi, This was my maiden attempt at making badusha and I was very happy with the result. You are right, we need to be very careful with the frying as it also makes it bigger and crispy and when you later add it to the sugar syrup it is perfect and moist. The water measurement was perfect too...you would think its a lot but when you work on the dough it makes it soft and perfect..like your photo. Made it for son's 3rd birthday. Its his favorite sweet and he loved it. Thank you for the detailed recipe. Helped a lot!!

  143. Hi raks

    I totally got disappointed on experimenting this dish..i m very crazy about badhusha and started working on it.. wat happend is the dough got dissolved fully after dropping in to the oil(i m sure oil is not too heat)............on considering the over oil and butter i added some more all purpose flour.. and it went wrong again. It came very crispy and broke before letting in to the sugar syrup. I totally collapsed the sweet.

  144. Hi shalini,
    Sorry about your bad experience... I am not sure could be more curd or cooking soda? please try again with smaller proportions with less cooking soda...I hope it turns out good

  152. I never liked badusha earlier in my life when I ate in marriages or in hotels. Last week my wife made at home looking at your recipe. That was the best badusha I ever had. Today is my birthday and she is preparing again for me.. Thank you so much :)

  153. looks great..will surely try :)

  154. Hi, I have been following your blog for sometime and it is really useful. I made Badushahs for last diwali and it came out really well. However, when I tried it this year I made the dough and gave some resting time before frying the badushahs and it got dissolved in the oil. Pls let me know wat I should do to get it perfect. I am not sure it it is because of excess oil or butter in the dough or if it was because of the resting time.

    ReplyDelete
  155. If you give resting time, no need to knead the dough for such long time. But I think more butter or oil should be the problem.

  156. Your video is too good Raks- I went the traditional way,but sure will try it one day.Why am I so glued to your site every time I visit it?Keep rocking:)

  157. hii planning to try it today for Diwali. 1st time badhusha. Here in US butter is not that good. It is good when melted as a ghee. So my question is - Can i use homemade Ghee instead of butter ?

    ReplyDelete
  158. Yes you can use ghee, it will work!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Raks, basic question - 1 cup = how many grams/ oz??

    ReplyDelete
  160. Could you please provide the weight in grams and volume in ml? It is really becoming difficult to comprehend the amount and the measures you use! Are are referring the cups to the american standard usage or the indian? Your recipes are awesome and they come out really good, I would say yours is one of the best food blog I have ever come across. But, please use the grams and litre/millilitre units!

    ReplyDelete
  161. Hi Sharmila,

    My one cup hold 240 ml of liquid. Basically I dont have a kitchen scale to give the measure accurately in weights. I majority of people who cook will be having measuring cups and can easily measure if I give in cup measurements.
    But I agree with you will try to buy a weighing scale soon!
    Thanks for your feedback!

  162. I followed ur recipe and the badushahs came out perfect (if i may say so)..Already ate 4 while making :) Thanks so much Raks

  163. I tried badusha . it came out well. I did not get enough layers inside. it was little soggy. second day it was yummy. I kept it in low heat. still i did not get the golden colour. it was slightly brownish.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I tried your recipe. They came out 90% alright. One fault was i did not get the golden colour inspite of keeping the flame low.
    2, I did not get layers inside.it was 5 % soggy.
    taste was superb.
    thanks for sharing.
    I made jalebi also It came out excellent. My husband gave 100 % marks for me.

  166. i tried badusha with lots of excitement. i added ghee instead of butter. i don't know what went wrong. it was very hard. we ate it like biscuit instead of badusha. help..... hope to try it some other time.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I made this for Deepavali. My family loved it. They called in Indian donut. Next time I want to get that golden color. Mine turned out dark brown. Another thing I notice is that the syrup soaked in more than I wanted it to. I wanted a lighter Badusha. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Hi Suja, I think adding butter gives softer badhusha. Full and full oil or ghee makes it crisp seems. Try with butter.

    rt :Did you add cooking soda or curd more than mentioned?

    ReplyDelete
  169. Hi, this diwali was really special for me because i prepared "Badhusha"..I strictly followed your measurements it came out very very well...My Hubby loved it a lot..Thank You so much.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Aha!!! I think I might have accidentally skipped the curds :(
    Will try not to miss that step next time. I did get the flaky texture but didn't get the golden color and the syrup was absorbed more than I wanted. Next time I will try to soak it for less than a minute. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  171. Hi,
    I made badushas following your recipe and it was a superhit!!!!! Yes, everyone liked it and the most important thing about this is that it wasn't time consuming and at the same time very tasty sweet. I have a concern and need your suggestion for that. When I made the dough I used all the ingredients in the same amount as you had mentioned above (though I was very confused with cup measurement before I started), still the dough was not smooth. It was little rough and when I made balls it was cracking at some places. Could you please give me suggestion to avoid this?
    Thanks Raks, you Rock!

  172. Hi Shailesh, Thanks for your feedback. Water quantity sometimes slightly varies depending upon the quality of maida. So when you find it bit dry, you can always sprinkle water and knead the dough as we are kneading for long time, I think it wont be a problem to sprinkle in earlier stage when we start kneading and feel that the dough is rough.

    ReplyDelete
  173. i used ghee instead of butter... when i mixed the maida in it... it was so soft.. i poured little water... when i fried it, it broke into pieces.. i dont know why... :(

    ReplyDelete
  174. hey.. the mistake i made is, my cup is a small one and i added more soda and curd.. i tried again... it worked.. now they are so nice... thanks a lot... adding ghee instead of butter doesnt make them hard... :)

  177. Hai raji i was very eager to try out your badusha recipe and after postponing it day by day finally i tried out today i was waiting for the results too but so sad it didnt turn out well. For past these days after noting down your measurements for any recipe for the time itself it will turn good. But today the some badushas was broken. When i kneaded the maida with butter and oil there is no need to add water at all the flour is dumped with butter and oil. The sugar syrup is also not enough to immerse the badushas may i know why still i added correct quantity of oil and butter. What may be the reason some were crispy also.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Surely butter must have been more. Thats y its broken and crispy. You may have to add water for sure. Otherwise the badushas will get briken in oil. If next time it happens, add more flour and add water, knead the dough.

    1. Too much of butter/ oil makesit soggy.

  188. Looks Delicious. BTW, can I use baking soda instead of cooking soda?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Both are different, baking soda only reacts while getting cooked, while cooking soda will react while you mix it with the ingredients like curd or lemon juice. Measure may differ, so you have to experiment with it.
