Method:
1.

Melt butter and add oil,sugar,curd and sodium bi-carb. to it and use a whisk to mix well,to make it almost frothy.Add the flour to it.

2.
Mix well to make it crumbly. Add water to make it dough,please be careful when adding,the 1/4 cup is what I used,it was just right,still you
adjust accordingly. Make it to a smooth dough without any lumps.

3.
I kept on kneading for sometime to get a smooth dough..may be 10 mins,I made 11 small lemon sized balls out of it. You can adjust the size
accordingly.

4.
covered.

Now take a ball and pinch the edges and fold it inwards to make rims decoratively as shown in the picture. Repeat to finish everything and keep

5.
Meanwhile add sugar to a pan and just add water to immerse it and boil till one string consistency ,i.e; if you pour in little water,it should not
dissolve and it should lay a fine thread or you can check between your forefinger and thumb by swiping the syrup from back of the ladle you use for stirring..
One more important point is not to keep stirring the syrup as stirring will make the syrup crystalize. Add saffron,elachi if desired and squeeze the lemon juice
lastly. Heat oil just enough,check it by adding a pinch of batter,if it rises immediately,then its just right. Dont let the oil fume at any point.

6.
Add some five badushas,we prepared ,carefully in to the oil. Remove from fire and let it get cooked in the pre heated oil. Approximately it wud
take 5 mins.
7.
At one stage the badushas float, then again keep the kadai on fire and cook in medium-low flame,adjust heat at the end to make it golden
brown,for me it took around 5-8 mins.

8.
Drain in a paper towel and immediately add to the hot sugar syrup,to cover the badusha ,I did this in batches 2-3 at a time. Leave for a minute
and then drain the badushas to a greased surface.

Notes:

If your badushas dissolve in oil as you are frying then any one of these is excess : butter or oil or cooking soda or water. So add more flour to the dough and

knead again to troubleshoot the problem.

If you reduce the quantity of butter or oil,then there will be drastic change in the texture of the badushas too,it will turn hard or crispy. You wont get the

layers inside too.

Badushas will be nice after cooling down,but I found,after a day or two it tastes even better ..

Adding lemon juice is to prevent crystallization of the sugar syrup.

Dont hurry up while frying,please do as mentioned,otherwise the texture gets affected too.

consume within a week.Do not refrigerate.

You can simply make the shapes like a doughnut(mini) , a faster way to do :)
