One of my favorite sweets is Badhusha. Not sure since when, somewhere from my school days! When I think of the sweet Badhusha, hhhhhhhm, feel like eating one! It is hard to buy Badhusha here, so I wanted to prepare one for myself! Yes, I want to treat myself, a sweet treat! And one more big reason to celebrate, as this is 100th post! Badhusha is an easy sweet and quite delicious. They do not require much time like other sweets. We used to keep these sweets for the marriages and other functions. And everytime, I visit India, my mom sends these sweets to me. They are so dear to me!!:)

You need: Maida flour - 1 cup Sugar - 1 1/4 cup Sour curd - 1 laddle Ghee - 2T Soda salt - 1/4 tsp Oil (or ghee) - for frying Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
In a mixing bowl, add ghee, soda and mix well.
To this add maida flour, sour curd and mix it well to make it a soft dough. The moisture in the curd is enough to make the dough. If required, you can sprinkle little water to make a soft dough. The dough should be of chapathi dough consistancy.
Cover the dough in the wet cloth and keep it for upto 15 minutes.
Make small patties of the dough as shown in this picture and press it in middle of each patti. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. When the oil is hot, add the maida patties one by one and fry it till it becomes golden brown color.
Heat another heavy bottomed pan, add sugar and water. Water should be added to dissolve sugar. Stir the sugar syrup till it becomes one string consistency. If you take a drop of sugar syrup and rub it between the fingers it should form like a string. Remove the sugar syrup from the flame.
Add the fried patties in the sugar syrup and soak it for 5 minutes. Take it out of the syrup after 5 mins and place it in a plate for 10 mins. After 10 mins, again take the soaked maida patties and add it to the sugar syrup and again soak it for 5 mins. Repeat the above steps for another time. So altogether 3 times we need to soak the patties in sugar syrup for 5 mins in a 10 min interval. If the sugar syrup becomes thick, sprinkle some water and stir well and keep it in low flame for a minute and then remove from flame and add the patties.
The yummy delicious badhusha sweet is ready for serving. Note: Its always good to fry the badusha patties in ghee or vanaspati instead of sunflower oil. We should not add more soda salt which will make the patties to break when soaked in sugar syrup. And thanks to Square Meals for sharing this wonderful award.
