  • To prepare the sugar syrup combine together sugar and water in a vessel and cook over medium low flame until it reaches single thread consistency.To check this take a drop of the sugar syrup in between your thumb and index finger and pull gently,if  a single thread is formed ,the sugar syrup is ready.Add the cardamom,saffron strands and lemon juice and mix well. Switch off the stove.
  • In a bowl combine together all purpose flour,baking soda and salt.Add the butter and yogurt and mix very gently using your finger tips until it resembles bread crumbs.
  • Add 1 or 2 tsp chilled water at a time and gently mix with your finger tips until a soft dough is formed.(Do not add too much water.For flaky and soft badusha ,make sure you handle the dough very gently.)
  • Divide the dough into 12 to 15 equal portions.Take a portion of the dough  and gently roll into a ball and flatten lightly between your palms.Make a small depression in the center using your thumb.(or pinch the edge and fold it inwards and repeat this to form a pleated border. )Repeat  this with the remaining dough.Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan,once the oil turns hot ,reduce the flame to medium and fry the badushas in 3 or 4 batches.
  • Turn once or twice in between for even cooking.Cook until it  turns golden brown on both the sides.
  • Drain onto a kitchen towel .Immediately drop them into the warm sugar syrup and allow to soak for 5 minutes. Transfer onto a serving plate and garnish with chopped pistachios or saffron strands.
