Maida/Refined flour -1/2Kg

Ghee - 100gms

Sugar -250gms

Water - 1/2 cup

Oil for Frying


Prepare Sugar Syrup:
Mix sugar and 1/4 cup of water together in a bowl
Heat on low flame till the sugar starts to melt
stir and cook till teh syrup starts thickening
The sugar syrup should acquire a two thread consistency
Remove from flame and let it rest

Make the Balushshis

Mix the flour and ghee together

Knead adding very little water at a time

Knead into a tight dough

Make balls from the dough, the size you would do for a puri

Press genty in the centre (see pic below)

Repeat the same with the remaining dough

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan
Fry the balushahis till golden in colour (check pic below)

Dip the balushahis in the sugar syrup and remove
The balushahi is now ready
Serve hot or cold as a side snack item

I made the balushahis (the right one on the pic at the top) first and since I like shakarparres a lot, I used the balushahis to taste the same and so I just thickened the sugar syrup a bit and added the balushahis in it and let it cool there.
