Balushahi (updated pic)

Balushahi is a traditional sweet of India made especially during festivals and feast. It is popular and much loved in South India and is also refereed to as badushah. All those who have a sweet tooth will surely love this sweet.It is like fried and glazed pasty that resembles doughnuts. It is sweet and has a slightly flaky and melt in mouth texture. It is made with flour,yogurt and ghee, fried and is dropped in sugar syrup. I did not get the cute round shape but I loved the flaky texture and everyone enjoyed :)

All Purpose flour- 2 cup
Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
salt- a pinch
Ghee- 1/3 cup
Yogurt- 1/2 cup

For the syrup
Sugar- 1 1/2 cup
Water- 3/4 cup
lemon juice- a few drops
Cardamon crushed-3-4

Oil for deep frying

In a bowl mix flour,baking powder and salt. Add ghee/butter and rub in ghee or butter with the flour until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Add yogurt and mix lightly till all comes together into a stiff dough. Do not knead much at this stage.It will not be a smooth dough just like for chapatis but will be flaky and easily falling apart.Allow it to rest for about an hour.

Make the syrup by adding water to sugar and bring it to a boil. Allow it to simmer till it reaches two thread consistency.Add lemon juice and cardamon and set aside.

Heat oil in a pan.Knead the dough a bit to make it easy to handle and little more smooth,but do not knead much. (The edges may looks rough and and cracked but will help to penetrate the sugar syrup later). Make small balls and flatten it slightly with your thumb. Fry in low medium flame till golden brown on both sides.Take out from the hot oil and after a few seconds drop into the sugar syrup and it remain for about 15- 20 minutes in the syrup. Take out and allow the glaze to dry.
