Now for the recipe..
INGREDIENTS (Makes 10)
Preparation time: 15-20 minutes
1 heaped cup wheat flour
a pinch of salt
6 tblsp butter+ ghee
For the syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
a dash of lemon juice
1 tsp ghee
1/2 tsp cardamon powder
few nuts for decoration (cashew,almond slivers,pistas )
Mix all the ingredients for the dough except the flour.
Beat till creamy.
Mix in the flour now, and lightly make a dough (Do not knead )
Cover and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
Make flattened balls (cookie shaped).
Make an impression with your thumb in the centre on each .
Fry on a low flame till golden on both sides.
Remove and set aside.
FOR THE SYRUP
Heat the sugar and water till you get a light soft ball stage.(Put a drop of sugar syrup
on a plate,and if it stands firm without flowing it is the correct stage ).
Next add lime juice and cardamon powder and remove from fire.
Add a tsp.of ghee into the sugar syrup,mix and add the fried badushas.
Swirl the pan to coat all the sides of the sweet.(2-3 minutes is enough)
Remove one by one carefully and decorate with nuts.
Allow to dry and store.
Variation : You could coat with powdered sugar too.
