How To Make Perfect Balushahi – All The Secret Tips \& Tricks हलवाई जैसी बालूशाही बनाने का सही तरीका




For making balushahi dough:

  • All purpose (maida) 2 cups or 300 gms
  • Ghee 4 tbsp or 100 gms
  • Cold fresh curd (dahi) 4 tbsp
  • Baking powder ¼ tsp
  • Water 4 tbsp

For making sugar syrup for balushahi:

  • Sugar 300 gms or 1.5 cups
  • Water ¾ cup (half the quantity of sugar)
  • Few Saffron strings (optional)

Lets see how to make balushahi recipe:

  1. In a bowl mix maida and baking powder.
  2. Add ghee and mix it well by rubbing it between palms. It will get a bread crumbs like texture.
  3. Add curd and mix.
  4. Now knead a semi soft dough by adding 3 to 4 tbsp water in it. NOTE: DO NOT KNEAD THE DOUGH FOR TOO LONG, JUST COMBINE IT. Few cracks are required for making balushahi.
  5. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile we will prepare sugar syrup.
  7. Add sugar and water in a pan. Keep stirring occasionally until it comes to a boil. Cook it further for 2 to 3 minutes at medium heat until you get one string consistency.
  8. Turn off the heat. Cover the pan and keep the sugar syrup aside.
  9. Now take a small peda from the dough and roll it gently and lightly between palms.
  10. Flatten it slightly and make a deep indent or depression in its center. Likewise make all balushahi.
  11. Cover the remaining dough with the same cloth until you fry these.
  12. Heat ghee or oil until it gets medium hot. At the same time heat a tava at another gas at medium heat.
  13. Once the ghee reaches correct temperature, transfer the ghee khadhai on hot tava. Keep the flame between medium to low.
  14. Keeping the khadhai on tava prevents ghee from getting too hot, which helps balshahi to fry perfectly at the same temperature.
  15. Gradually slide few balushahi into ghee. Fry few balushahi at one time as balushahi will expand in ghee while frying. So make sure that you do not over crowd the kadhai or pan. Also do not flip balushahi very frequently.
  16. Once the bottom side turns golden brown, gently flip and fry them from other side. Fry balushahi till golden and brown from both sides. Frying one batch of rbalushahi can take around 10 to 15 minutes at low to medium heat, depending on the size of balushahi.
  17. Remove the fried balushahi from the ghee.
  18. Transfer the hot balushahi into warm sugar syrup. Let the soak into sugar syrup for about 5 seconds from each sides.
  19. If in case the sugar syrup gets cool, then reheat it until it gets warm. NOTE: never add hot balushahi into hot sugar syrup it will make it very soft and balushahi can break.
  20. Take out balushahi from the sugar syrup and garnish it with chopped pista and almonds.
  21. Balushahi can be easily stored at room temperature for 5 to 6 days.
