BALUSHAHI
Author : Vahchef
Main Ingredient : Maida flour
Servings : 8 persons
Published date : November 26, 2016


Ingredients used in BALUSHAHI
• Sugar - 2 cups.
• Yogurt, beaten - 8 tablespoons.
• Oil + to deep fry - 2/3 cup.
• Soda bicarbonate - half tea spoon.
• Refined flour (maida) - 1 ½ cups.
• Milk - 2 tablespoons.
• Pistachios, finely chopped - 4-5 numbers.
Method:
  • Sift refined flour and soda bicarbonate together into a bowl.
  • Rub in two-thirds cup of olive oil into the flour mixture till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add beaten yogurt and knead into soft dough. Cover and allow it to rest for forty-five minutes.
  • Divide into twelve equal portions and shape into smooth balls. Take care not to overwork the dough.
  • Make a slight dent in the center of the ball with your thumb. Keep the balls covered.
  • Heat sufficient oilin a kadai and when it is medium hot, add the prepared dough balls and deep fry on very low heat. If necessary you may place a tawa below the kadai so that the oil does not get too hot.
  • Gradually the balushahis will start floating to the top. Turn gently and fry on the other side till golden. The entire process may take around half an hour to forty-five minutes.
  • Drain and allow to cool to room temperature. This can be an overnight process.
  • Heat together sugar and one cup of water till it reaches a two-string consistency. Midway through add milk to the cooking syrup so that the scum rises to the surface. Carefully remove this scum and discard.
  • Remove the syrup from heat and soak the fried balushahis in it for thirty minutes.
  • Gently remove the balushahis from the sugar syrup and place on a serving plate. Garnish with pistachios. Serve when the sugar has hardened.
