How to Make Balushahi Like a Pro:

-First of all, sift the flour in a mixing bowl. Add a pinch of salt to taste.

- Add baking powder to the flour and mix well. Add half a cup of ghee in it and mix the ingredients well. Gradually add water little by little and knead the dough.

-The dough should not be kneaded too much. To ensure that the layers of sanding are formed properly, they should be mixed gently with hands.

-Once the flour is mixed well, leave it like this for about 15 minutes.

-To make syrup, take a pan and add one cup of water and sugar in it. Stir well until the sugar dissolves completely.

-Once the sugar syrup starts boiling, add food color as per your choice and keep stirring for about 2 minutes.

-If you are adding saffron then crush it and also add crushed cardamom pods. Cook until the syrup is completely ready.

-Take some portions of dough and roll them into smooth balls. Flatten them slightly with your palms and make a depression in the center using your thumb or the back of a spoon.

- Heat ghee or oil in a pan and fry the Balushahi on low flame until it becomes golden brown and crisp.

- After frying, dip the Balushahi in syrup and let it soak for about 2 to 3 minutes.

- Decorate with pistachios and dry fruits on top.

-Your crispy and delicious Balushahi is ready to serve
