I presented two of south Indian Sweets last time. This time I want to introduce Andhra Badhusha which is most famous sweet as Bombay Badhusha. This dessert is fit for all occasion that I thought of presenting here......
3 cup Maida / Plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup ghee
1 to 1.5 cups curd
Oil for deep fry
5 cups sugar
2.5 cups water
Sieve maida in bowl, add soda and ghee and mix it well. Then add yogurt and make it into a spongy dough. (Do not put water, u should make it with curd). Covered it with a wet cloth for half an hour.
Meanwhile prepare sugar syrup. Put the 5 cups Sugar into a vessel, add 2.5cup water, keep stirring till Sugar dissolves, keep the syrup on the fire till it is two string consistency (Adhara style Badhusha need two string consistency) and crushed cardamoms
Make lemon size round balls with the dough and press with your thumb on the ball. do the same till all the dough is over, fry 4 – 5 of the Badhushas at a time on low flame till golden brown( I fried till dark brown, but you do correctly) on both sides.
Remove from the oil when it’s done and drop into warm sugar syrup.let them soak 15 mints.
