Baloo Shahi or Badusha

I have been making this sweet for quite some time .Mainly because of its simple ingredients which is always available in home & easiness.. so thought of taking a snap today for my here it is..
Enjoy this sweet in all special occasions or make any occasions special with this sweet ;)

Things Needed:
1 + 1/2 cup -All purpose flour
1/2 tsp - Baking powder
2 tbsp - Butter
Yogurt - enough to make the dough.

Oil to fry

For making Sugar syrup:
Sugar - 300 gm

Preparation Method:
Mix flour , baking powder in a bowl.
Add butter and make crumbles using hand.
Mix in yogurt to this spoon by spoon & mixing using hand to make a tough dough.Enough tough to make balls .
Keep this aside for around 15 min.

Heat sugar with some water(should be only enough to cover the sugar. you can add later if needed) in a vessel. stir until it becomes a thick syrup. Set it aside.

Make small dumplings out of the dough ( I took 1 sp dough for 1 baloo). Press in the middle using thumb to make a cavity.
Deep fry in oil in medium heat until golden brown.

Add the fried pieces to the sugar syrup. Use a spoon & let it coat in all sides.
Top it with sliced almonds or pistachios.
