Its raining sweet and savories in the blogging world for the upcoming Deepavali festival..I also finally tried out something that I have never tried earlier - Badushah. The recipe is as it is from one of my favourite blogger - Sharmilee of Sharmis passion..Also have a look at Raji's version at Raks kitchen with recipe and video for Badushah but with a different measurement for ingredients. Both of them have provided step by step instructions with special tips and leave no space for going wrong in any way......
1.5 cups of all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
2 tbsp beaten curd
1 tsp sugar
1.5 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp cooking soda
1/2 cup sugar
Cardamom powder for flavour
3/4 cup water
Bit of lemon juice
Water as required
Oil to fry
Mix the butter, oil, sugar, curd and soda well. Slowly add in the flour and keep mixing it well. Finally add water as required to get a soft dough. Keep aside for 10 minutes and prepare the sugar syrup by that time.
Heat the sugar and water to get a single string consistency. Add in the lemon juice and cardamom powder and keep aside. Make small balls of the dough and flatten them slightly. To make the corners decorative, have a look at the videos at Sharmis blog or Raks kitchen.
Heat oil in medium flame. Put a small piece of the flour to check the heat. If it pops up immediately, put in a few pieces of the badushah and switch off the stove. Dont disturb it and let it cook in the oil. When the bubbles settle down, switch on the stove again and cook on medium flame till golden brown. Drain excess oil in a tissue paper and dip in the sugar syrup. Let it stay soaked for 2-3 minutes and then transfer to a greased plate. Repeat for rest of the dough.
Although it takes a reasonable time to prepare these, the end results are just fantastic. Garnish with cardamom powder or saffron strands.
