    2. Now add maida and mix well. It will look like bread crumbs.
    3. Then add water little by little to form a soft dough.
    4. Knead it for 10 mins. Divide into lemon sized balls and keep aside for 10 mins.
    5. Add sugar and water to a pan to make the sugar syrup. When the sugar syrup comes to a single string consistency, add saffron strands, elaichi powder and lemon juice. Keep aside.
    6. While making the sugar syrup, start shaping the badusha.
    7. Then heat oil in a kadai, add a few badushas and immediately turn off the heat. Let them cook in the preheated oil.
    8. When the bubbles disappear, then switch on the heat. Fry on medium low flame until golden brown.
    9. Drain and add it to the prepared sugar syrup. Immerse for 2 mins and transfer to a tray with butter paper/silver foil.
    10. Once the sugar syrup hardens, store them.
