First melt butter and add oil, sugar, curd and sodium-bi-carb. to it and use a whisk to mix well, to make it almost frothy. Add the flour to it.
Mix well to make it crumbly. Add water little by little to make smooth dough without cracks.
Knead for 10 mins and divide into 12 equal sized balls.
Now take a ball and pinch the edges and fold it inwards to make rims decoratively as shown in the picture/ or refer video. Repeat to finish everything and keep covered. You can choose to make simple doughnut shape too.
To make syrup, add sugar, water to a pan. Boil till one string consistency.
Switch off stove, add powdered cardamom and lemon juice. Mix well.
Heat oil in a kadai just enough, check it by adding a pinch of batter,if it rises immediately,then its just right. Don't let the oil fume at any point.
Add some five badusha, we prepared, carefully in to the oil. Remove from fire and let it get cooked in the pre heated oil.
Approximately it would take 5 mins. At one stage the badusha float on top, then again keep the kadai on fire. Cook in medium-low flame, adjust heat at the end to make it golden brown. For me it took around 5-8 mins.
Drain in a paper towel and immediately add to the hot sugar syrup,to cover the badusha.
I did this in batches 2-3 at a time. Leave for a minute and then drain the badushas to a greased surface.
