Badusha - Diwali special

Ingredients required:

  • Maida - 2 cups (You can use Allpurpose flour for this too)
  • Baking soda - 1 tsp
  • Curd - 1 cup (Use Danon's plain yogurt if you are in US)
  • Ghee or Dalda - 1 cup ( I personally prefer ghee as it tastes better :-)
  • Vanilla essense - Just a few drops
  • Oil to fry the badushas.
  • Sugar - 3 cups
  • Water - 1 - 1 1/2 cups

Cooking Method:

  • Blend together Maida, curd, baking soda , a pinch of sugar and ghee(or dalda) with a blender or with your hands to make a nice dough.
  • Keep this aside for about 15 minutes covered with a cloth.
  • Make small balls out of the dough and press or flatten them.
  • Press the centre of the above flattened balls so that it forms a depression. This will help the badusha to absorb sugar better.
  • Now prepare sugar syrub by adding sugar and water in a bowl and heating it. Add the vanilla essence to this.
  • Let it boil until you get the consistency of one string (Pagu should be 1 string pagu).
  • Now heat oil in a pan and start frying the badushas.
  • Pl note that the flame should be in medium or sim, otherwise the badushas will not cook properly.
  • Wait until the badusha turns golden brown. It does take time as you are setting the flame to medium or sim.
  • Now add the badusha into the sugar syrup and let it abosrb sugar for about 10 min.
  • Take out the badusha and place in a large plate.

You can garnish the above with coconut strings or tutty-fruitty or other nuts.

Digital Memory sure is becoming cheaper and cheaper and cheaper. I'm curious as to when we will eventually hit the ratio of 1c to 1 GB.

I'm eagerly anticipating the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 TB drive, lol. But for now I will be satisfied with having a 16 GB Micro SD in my R4i.
