( Seivathu eppadi endra Tamil video ingu inaikkapattullathu )

Ingredients 
All purpose flour / maida – 1 cup
Butter – 2 tbsp
Baking pdr – 1/2 tsp
Cooking soda – 1/4 tsp
Milk – 1/2 cup
Sugar – 3/4 cup
Water – 1/4 cup ( to make sugar syrup )
Lemon – 1/5 tsp ( not more than )



Method 
1. In a bowl mix all purpose flour, baking powder, cooking soda and butter. mix them well. Then add milk slowly and knead the dough well. ( like chapati dough consistency ). Let it sit for 30 minutes.
2. In a saucepan add 3/4 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of water. Let it boil. Turn off the stove, when you pour this syrup with a ladle it should get poured like a smooth thread ( before it reaches single thread consistency ). Now add 1/5 tsp of lemon to this sugar syrup. By doing this you can avoid further thickening of this sugar syrup. It won’t leave the sugar syrup sour since the lemon juice is very less.
3. Make lemon sized balls from the dough, flatten the balls lightly and make a depression in the center using your thumb. Badusha will puff out ( double the size ) while deep frying, so if the badusha’s center depression is too small it will vanish at the time of deep frying.
4. Heat frying oil in a heavy bottomed pan, it should be hot but not smoking hot,  keep the flame low and fry prepared badusha. Fry both sides till it turns light brown. Throughout the process stove should be in low flame.
5. Put these fried badusha in to the sugar syrup and let it sit for 30 minutes. If desired, sprinkle some chopped nuts over it. Badusha sweet is ready to serve.
