Ingredients :

For the dough :

Maida : 3 cups
Butter : 1/4 cup
Oil : 1/2 cup
Sugar : 1 tbsp
A Big Pinch of Cooking Soda

For the Syrup :

Sugar : 1 cup

Oil for deep frying

Method :

Mix the maida, sugar, butter, oil and cooking soda together and make smooth dough by adding water as necessary. Keep it aside for one hour. Mix the sugar and water. The amount of water should be just enough to soak the sugar and make a syrup of one thread consistency. Remove from the flame and set aside. Divide the dough into small lemon size balls. Flatten them a little and make a dimple in the middle. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying the badushas. Deep fry the badushas on medium flame till golden brown color. When they turn to golden brown color, remove from the oil and put them into sugar syrup. Soak the badushas in sugar syrup for 5 minutes. Take the badushas out of the syrup and let it cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
