Hi people :)..this is my entry for JFI (Jihva for ingredients)


  • Maida ( All purpose Flour) – 1 cup
  • Butter – 2 Tablespoons
  • Sugar – 3/4 cup
  • Baking Soda – a pinch
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Cardamom Powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Saffron strands – few
  • Ghee for frying.


  1. Sift the maida , salt and baking soda together.Add a little water ,butter to the flour and form a soft dough.Dont knead too much.
  2. Make small balls and form patties.Gently press the middle of the patty half way through using index finger.
  3. Heat ghee ( can substitute oil for ghee to cut down on fat) in a kadai and fry the baadusha patties until light golden brown and crispy.
  4. Heat the sugar with 1/4 cup of water and stir in the sugar syrup until it becomes sticky.Add saffron and cardamom to the sugar syrup.Take it out of heat.
  5. Dip the baadusha in the sugar syrup for 2 or 3 minutes in the sugar syrup and arrange it in a serving dish.

Note : Dont keep the patties in sugar syrup for too long as the sugar syrup hardens when cooled and it will be tough to remove the patties.
