What Is Balushahi

Balushahi is a traditional popular sweet from the Indian subcontinent.

Balushahis are made of refined flour, and are deep-fried in clarified butter and then dipped in sugar syrup.

So let's start to making sweets called Balushahi.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour 15 min
Cook time: 1 hour 15 min
Ready in: 2 hours 30 min
Yields: 4 people


  • 500 grams Sugar
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 spoon yogurt
  • 100 grams refined floor


Add 500 gram sugar and 250 grams of water in a pan on high heat. Stirring occasionally. When the sugar dissolves and one bubble is came turn off the gas. Remove the syrup from heat and keep aside.

Take a large bowl and mix refined flour and baking soda. Add four tablespoons of ghee into the flour mixture. Add the beaten yogurt and knead well. Make a soft dough and cover it with dump cloth for 25 minutes.

Divide the dough into sixteen equal portions and shape into smooth balls. You have to make circle the balls with the press of your palm. Make a slight hole in the centre of the ball with your thumb.

Add ghee in a kadai. Heat the ghee on medium flame. Do not use high flame at all. Add balushahi one by one into the kadai and deep fry on low heat. Make sure you fry them at low heat so that they cook all the way through.

After 5 minutes the balushahi will start floating automatically. When it will turn into golden brown, remove them from the ghee.

Soak the cooled balushahi in sugar syrup for thirty minutes. Remove the balushahi from the sugar syrup and place on a serving plate.

Garnish with the dry fruits.
