Badhusha – My 100th post - Diwali Special

Hooray for my 100th post!! Wow what a journey it has been. I am so excited about this little milestone!!

I really never thought I can make these many kinds of recipes, but over the last 6 months, I have exposed a love to baking, tried many new recipes first time, organized some foodie events, and met so many inspirational and lovely bloggers of whom some have already became friends!! I love reading all your comments and you all inspire me to carry on.

I wanted to say a heartfelt thankyou to all my friends, followers, bloggers and readers. And I am very grateful to my sweet hubby who supports and helps in my cooking.




To celebrate this small milestone, I prepared badhusha. I learnt this recipe from Raks kitchen. 
Badhusha is an Indian festive Sweet made easily with available ingredients of flour and sugar. First time I made these Badhusha’s and I enjoyed making those shapes. They came out so soft and I and my hubby enjoyed them a lot.

Initially I taught it is very difficult to make, but when I decided to prepare I felt it is very easy and infact I made it on weekday after coming from work within 1 hour, enjoyed making them :)

All purpose flour/Maida – 1 ½ cups
Butter – ¼ cup

Curd – 1 ½ tsp
Baking Soda – 2 pinches

For Syrup:
Sugar – ½ cup

  • Later the badushas float on top, again switch on the heat and cook on medium flame for another 5 mins or till they turn golden color.
  • Drain them in paper towel and immediately put them into the sugar syrup for about 5 mins and serve in a plate.
