Badusha Recipe | How To make Badusha Sweet

Badusha Recipe pinit

Balushahi is a traditional dessert originating from the Indian subcontinent. It’s similar to a glazed doughnut in terms of ingredients but differs in texture and taste. In South India, there are also doughnuts called badushas (also spelled bhadushah) which differ because they’re made with flour like all-purpose flour mixed with ghee and baking soda for stiffness instead of sugar syrup or oil that would traditionally be used by many other cultures around the world.. Badusha has an inch diameter disc shape while being about one half inches thick – so they can take more time frying before becoming too crunchy than most Americanized fried donuts might need! They come out very sweet as well since these snacks contain coating such as powdered sugar.
