Badusha- A Pictorial

Here I am..again  remembering my blog . Happy Diwali to all!

Diwali- The only time in the year I am motivated to cook  sweets.  It just happened that in my family all are spice lovers and none got  a  sweet tooth except for those chocolates.

I remembered that the year before I was in a  crunch of time to do a sweet for Diwali. I did say to myself , anything is impossible if we think of it ahead of time. So, I did do my analysis, gathered recipes, shortlisted them and picked up my fave- Badushah/Balusahi

This is  a recipe from our family friend -who is an excellent cook herself and an expertise in using locale items in traditional cooking.  Yes you guessed it right- This is like my Kala Jamoon which also uses pancake mix.

Ingredients:

All purpose flour/ Maida – 3 cups

Bisquik pancake mix- 1 cup

Butter – 4 tbsp  (1/2 stick)

Milk – to knead

Ingredients- Badusha

For the syrup:

Sugar – 4.5 cups

Water – 2 cups

Food color- optional – 1 pinch

Lime juice- 1 tsp

Mix the flours and butter till the butter is well incorporated. Sprinkle milk (Can use yogurt as well- I have had used both) and knead  it  like a roti dough.  Let it rest for three hours.

Make the syrup till  1 string consistency. Add food color at the end and squeeze lime juice to avoid crystallization. Let the  syrup cool down.

Make small similar sized balls out of the dough , place them between the palms, twist and make it a disc.  Press a thumb in the middle .

Badusha

Fry these discs at medium heat just like we fry gulab jamuns.

Drain , place in the syrup for three minutes and remove and line them up on a plate/cookie sheet.  While they are hot , garnish the top with flakes of coconut/pistachios/saffron to your liking.
