Badusha – Badusha Recipe with video

October 27, 2016 Diwali Special  No comments


Badusha is a very popular South Indian sweet. I have been wanting to make this recipe since a very long time. Honestly this is my first attempt. My mom is an expert in making Badusha. But she is so good at it that she makes it effortlessly without measuring. So I was literally pestering her to make it so that I can give the correct measurements here and finally made it. Measurements are very important in making Badusha, especially the butter and cooking soda. Recipe is with full video, so u cannot go wrong anywhere.

Badam Halwa is a rich and delicious sweet made with almond paste, sugar and ghee. There is no sugar syrup consistency needed in making this Badam halwa. Is it not good news?!? Unlike other sweets, this Badam Halwa does not need a lot of ghee. I have posted a Badam Burfi recipe earlier. Its a microwave version. Kaju Katli is yet another favourite of mine. Try anyone of these if u are a fan of cashew/badam based sweets.

I always try to make some variations in making potato fry. This Garlic Potato Fry is yet another simple and lip-smacking, spicy fry. I actually wanted to make this with baby potatoes, but unfortunately the baby potatoes that I got where oversized. So had to make it as normal one. This goes well with rice or roti. With simple ingredients that are usually available in the pantry, this Garlic Potato Fry can be made in a jiffy.

Today is a special day for MyMagicPan!! It is MyMagicPan’s 3rd blog anniversary!! I just can’t believe it’s 3 full years already!! Blogging has always been fun, in fact most of the times addictive. There have been times when I plan so much for MyMagicPan rather than other important things 😉 especially when we go on a vacation.  Whatever may be, my blog has kept me busy and happy/proud!! I might be repetitive, but it is so true that it has given me a whole new identity!! All of your comments, feedbacks, phone calls, messages & pictures truly overwhelm me!! A HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to each and everyone of you to have supported me all these years & for encouraging me in the future as well!!

KolluSundal_0497 (2)

Navaratri is around the corner. This Kollu Sundal is a flavourful and easy sundal to make during Navaratri. The only planning needed to make this sundal is to soak kollu/horsegram overnight. After making the Kollu Rasam, for which I used only a little portion of the cooked kollu, I made this Kollu Sundal. It was so flavourful and filling.

Paneer Biryani_0647 (2)

I love Biryani, especially Paneer Biryani. It is a festive meal for almost all vegetarians. This Paneer Biryani is a simple one pot meal made in a pressure cooker. Unlike the normal Veg Biryani there is not much chopping work or grinding involved here. The only step that u have to plan ahead is to marinate the paneer. I usually make Biryani during weekends. It is an easy lunch box option to make during weekdays too.
