|Happy Anniversary to us ^_^|

2.Thick curd/Yougurt- 6 tbsp
3.Ghee (Do not melt/heat) - 2 tbsp
2.Water -3/4 cup
Thanks to my friend Lalita for the excellent recipe. Mix all the ingredients. Dough should be of following consistency. Do no heat ghee or substitute yogurt with buttermilk. Else flour will start melting in hot oil.
|A lil looser than roti dough|
Knead the dough. No need to knead it soft as we need a little rough texture. Make donuts (do not make a hole in the centre but just your thumb impression will do) Main reason is that when you press with your thumb,dough expands and will have tiny cracks through which sugar syrup will seep in.
Deep fry all the donuts and put them in a bowl. Heat the oil very well initially and when you start frying keep the heat to medium so that badhushas get cooked very well inside too.
Make sugar syrup ; consistency should be a little thick.Just the stage before string consistency. squeeze the lemon so that sugar syrup does not become thicker. Switch off stove and put all the badushas.leave for 15 mins and take them out. If you leave longer, badushas might get softer and starts breaking. If you leave for less time, sugar syrup wont seep in and badushas will taste sweet outside and no flavor inside.
Note: Try this with 1 cup flour first so that you will not waste much oil, ghee and other ingredients.
P.S. Was lazy to click pix with camera, just took it with iTouch. Excuse me for that!
