How to prepare Badusha sweet
Yields- 21 badushas
Maida /All purpose flour – 1/4 kg (250grams)
Ghee – 50 grams
Vanaspati /Dalda – 100 grams
Cooking soda – 1/4 tsp
For the sugar syrup
Sugar -3/4 kg
Water -2 cups
Milk – 4 tbsp
Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp
Edible camphor /pachai karpram – a pinch
Seive maida and keep it aside.
First mix dalda, cooking soda and ghee nicely / vigorously for 10 minutes.(pic 1 and 2).Do it in the same direction.
Let it sit for 15 minutes .
After that divide the dough into equal lemon sized balls, flatten it a little and make a depression with your thumb in the middle. (see picture 5)
Meantime let us make the sugar syrup-
Take a pan, add water and sugar and bring it to boil. Add milk and boil for a few more seconds. The impurities (if any) in sugar will come to the surface. Remove it with a ladle.
Then boil sugar syrup till it reaches one string consistency. Add cardamom powder and pachai karpuram.
Then drop them in the sugar syrup and let is sit for 6-7 minutes. (pic -8)
Then remove it from the syrup and place it in a plate. Let the sugar syrup dry. (pic-9)
If needed, garnish with grated coconut and cashew nuts on top while serving.
(I simply added yellow food color to the grated coconut and garnished just to show you)
To know what is one string consistency, refer my Boondi laddu recipe.
If the dough gets too soft, do not panic, just add more flour to set it right.This will stay fresh for a week .You can store it in an air tight container.

My dad loves these a lot .. I am not a big fan, find it oily and too sweet. Thanks for the recipe .. will make it for him sometime 🙂
I tried to make it but ended up extremely soft badhusha which broke when frying ….any tips
Well, either you did not knead the dough properly or the oil was not hot enough.That might be the reason why your badhusha broke while frying.
Thanks for the Wonderful Recipe… Iam planning to prepare this sweet for Diwali…today i tried to prepare 4 – 5 badhusha…i feel its little hard..what could be the reason…
The first step (ie)" mixing dalda and ghee nicely for 10 minutes.Then add maida, cooking soda and mix well" is very important to get soft badushas. Mix vigorously or beat for nearly 10-15 minutes. You can use hand beater also or use your hands.
Please let me know your recipe for making somasi sweet or sweet kachore. I am planing to make this for this Deewali can you send me this early. Your recipes for all the items are very nice & easy to make many thanks
I have become a great fan of your website. I am delighted for all the iyer / south indian dishes that you have in your web site. Now we do not have a problem….. if we want a dish… we have Padhuskitchen to help. All the very best
Hi, I'm planning to prepare Badusha tomorrow for this yr Diwali…I dont have Dalda..Wht can I use instead of Dalda?
You can try replacing it with ghee but I have not tried using ghee fully. So I do not know how the outcome will be.
Hi, Thanks..I will try with ghee and let u know how it comes… The ingredients are in grams(Kgs) Can you tell the measurement in cups? Here in US, we will get things only in LBs…
You can get a measuring cup which is easily awailable in US .I will consider your suggestion also
Guess what….when i tried to fry the badusha in the heated oil, it started melting and looked like kheer in the oil 🙁
What do you think went wrong??..
May be you have added too much dalda or the oil heat was too low.It happened to me once.The first batch dissolved in the oil because my oil was not hot enough
Hi Padu Madam… If we want to avoid Maida, any other floor that you suggest Pl?
Baudsha is made only with maida. You can try some other diwali sweets if you want to avoid maida.
Is the sugar to be measured in cup or kg ?
Thank you do
Much for this step by step recipe
Sugar is 3/4 kg .
Thank you padhu will try this next weekend and update you
Tried at home ..comes out v.well in first attempt itself..v.happy thanks
Hi pathu mam is milk should be add in sugar syrup thanks
Yes just 4 tbsp milk is added to syrup to remove the dirt and impurities in sugar.
Is that much ghee needed because I don't like ghee and dalda
Thank you so much. Definitely need to try
I tried Badhusha this diwali. Jus foll ur instructions given & it came beautifully well. Thanks
I am trying badhusha but when I fry it's all coming out. .It's not holding together. .what to do.
For Badusha not holding together -If the oil is not hot enough, it happens. Oil should not be too hot also.
I have tried once it with butter instead of ghee. But while frying it melted to oil and donot hold. Why it happened..Is it because of butter or anything else
Hi mam i did it but after all the process it become hard how to alter it please let me know.
Pls make a video of making badhusha in ur youtube channel….
I tried this but ur ratio is not correct. Please check your ratio padhus.
