Sugar – 1 cup
Cardamom – 3 or ¼ tsp
Saffron strands   - 7
Lemon juice – 1 tsp

Pistachios – 4
Almond – 3


In a bowl, add maida , baking soda. Mix well.

Add ghee and oil and crumble [ mix well] it with maida mixture.

Add curd .
Now add water little by little to knead soft and smooth dough.

 Knead the dough for atleast 3 minutes .
Rest it for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare sugar syrup.
 For that add sugar and water into saucepan . Place it over stove on medium flame and let it to boil for 3-4 minutes until u get one string consistency.

To check one string consistency, take one drop of sugar syrup in between your index and thumb. If you press and release you will see one string. It also be sticky.
Now switch off the flame. Add cardamom, saffron strand and lemon juice.mix well and keep it ready.
After resting  the dough for 15 minutes, now take lemon sixed dough and roll into small balls without cracks.

To get even smooth texture without any cracks, apply some ghee on your palm. Roll for five times and flatten , roll five times and flatten it. Do the same until you get even smooth texture without any cracks.
You may watch video for better understanding.
Now flatten with your palm and make deep dent at the centre. Do the same with rest of your dough.
Heat oil until it reach medium hot temperature. Your oil should not be at high temperature because it cause badusha’s to break or get dark golden colour outside without cooking inside properly.
To check temperature, drop small piece of dough into oil, if it stays for a while, raises and float on top, then it is ready to fry badusha.
Drop one by one into oil and fry them until both sides of badusha’s turn golden brown colour.
Strain from oil and place on tissue for few seconds until excess oil is absorbed. Then immediately add into warm sugar syrup. Let it to soak in sugar syrup for minimum of 8 hours.

You may garnish it with pistachios and almonds on top and enjoy for this diwali. Trust me they are really soft, juicy and just melts in the mouth. Also the texture is perfectly  flaky.  Watch video for more details.
Wish you all very happy deepavali in advance.
