I am trying badushas for the first time, and glad that it turned out well and crunchy, Do try it once , iam sure you will just love the taste.


Maida/All purpose flour - 1 cup
Butter - 50 grams
Cooking soda/Sodium-bi-carbonate - 1/4 Teaspoon
Water - As needed.
Oil - for deep frying

For Syrup:

Sugar - 1 Cup
Water - Just enough to immerse sugar
Rose essence - Few drops
Saffron - a pinch (optional)

Method :

 In a mixing bowl add softened butter and cooking soda and mix well, then add maida to it and mix well so that ir forms bread crumbs like texture. Then sprinkle water, to it and knead for about 10 mnts so that it becomes a soft dough without any lumps. Then make small balls out of the dough. Now take a ball and pinch the edges and fold it inwards, to make the rims decoratively. Repeat the process and finish everything and keep it covered.

Heat oil just enough, i.e if you put a pinch of batter, it should slowly raise, then add few badushas and lower the flame, let it get cooked in slow flame atleast for about 5 minutes. so that it gets cooked inside well. and turns golden colour. Drain it in paper towel.  Add the next set of badushas now.

Mean while add sugar to a pan, just add water just to immerse it, and boil until half string consistency add rose essence  and mix well. Add the first set of badushas, pour sugar syrup and turn each badusha's few times, and then lay in a tray, by then the next set of badushas would be ready so add and do the same way like before. 

Enjoy the super crunchy badushas, it tastes even better the next day :-)
Notes :
  • If you reduce the quantity of oil / butter, then there will be a drastic change in the texture of badushas too, it will be hard, and not crunchy, you wont get the layers inside too.
  • Dont hurry up while frying badushas, please do as mentioned, otherwise the texture gets affected too. It has to get cooked in very low flame for atleast 5 minutes.
  • Consume within a week, donot refrigerate.
  • You can simply make the shape like doughnuts (mini).
  • You can add elachi powder or saffron also instead of rose essence.
