Most of the taste of Badusha lies in it's layers, to get a perfect layers the badushas should be fried on really low flame.
- Heat the oil for deep frying, the badushas should be completely covered in the oil while frying.
- The oil should not be hot. Once it is hot enough( to test drop a little ball of dough in the oil, it should raise up immediately)
- Remove from the heat and drop Badushas and let them fry for 5-6 mins. Then again keep them on low flame for just 4-5mins, fry them on both the sides.
- Fallow the above method for all the badushas and keep them aside.
- Prepare the sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water till it gets 2 string consistency.
- Drop the prepared Badushas in the hot sugar syrup and soak them for 4-5min.
- Remove them from the syrup and lay them on the wax paper, let them sit there till the sugar syrup dries up.
- Garnish Badushas with crushed nuts.
- Do not add the curd all at once, adjust as required to make the soft dough.
- If the dough is too soft to handle add little plain flour to it.
