Badusha / Balushahi

Srilatha Dessert, Indian Leave a Comment

Badusha, or Balushahi as it’s known in the northern parts of India, is a delicate, flaky, pastry that is somewhat similar to donuts. Except, I do think it’s not as doughy, and is quite a bit flaky. When I told me daughter it’s like a donut, she asked: “Is this one of those things that you say it’s like an American sweet, but it’s really not?” For some reason, my kids, while they inhale all the spicy Indian food with gusto, run when I offer them Indian sweets. They say it’s too sweet. This from the kids who would eat ice cream for breakfast if it’s an option! But then, I’m digressing. On to the recipe of this delicacy!
