Balushahi is a traditional sweet originating from India. It resembles very much like doughnuts in terms of ingredients and looks. Other names for this sweet is badusha or bhadusha.

The texture and taste of balushahi differ from a doughnut, though. It is crispy from the outside and soft from the inside, unlike doughnuts soft from inside-out. This sweet is moist and a bit flaky from the inside, and it also has ample ghee in it.

It would help if you didn’t make any changes to the recipe. Otherwise, it might not turn out right or as desired.

Making this sweet is easy and does less fussy—however, the only time-consuming thing rolling the badushahs from the dough.

It is prepared on auspicious occasions like weddings or during festivals like Diwali or Holi. You can even find it in sweet shops easily if you do not want to make it at home. Moreover, it is also great to prepare it for guests and impress them.

Usually, it is served hot, but you can also have it at room temperature.  It can be stored at room temperature for around five days to a week in an air-tight container.
