Balushahi Sweet || Balu Shahi Recipe || How to Make Balushahi Recipe with step-by-step photos

Balushahi is a popular Pakistani-style glazed donut mainly made up of all-purpose flour and ghee. These are flaky and layered in texture. A piece of sweet you can’t resist, our Balushahi will tease your taste buds and be your perfect partner for festive get-togethers or celebrations. This traditional Pakistani dessert is a Donut like pastry that is made of Maida flour and clarified butter. 

Once deep-fried, it is then coated in sugar syrup to give you a taste that you would remember forever. This sweet has been delighting generations for a long time and we are sure that once you try it, you won’t be an exception.

As you know Eid-ul-Adha is upcoming and on eid, everyone makes sweet dishes at their home or buys sweets from the shop I thought should try to make it at home but very honestly I wasn’t sure at all that will be able to make it successfully yet I tried with all hopes and started to make it. Consequently, 4 trials failed which was disappointing. But then I realized my mistake and tried for the 5th time.

Yes…Woah I successfully made the famous balushahi at home better than the balushahi which we buy at the market. with so many trial and errors I got this absolutely flaky and light balushahi. I can say that this is a full-proof balushahi recipe if you follow this recipe you all should try it at home once you can better result than the market..
so let's begin 

Few Useful Tips For Recipe:

  1. The most important thing is the dough-making process. Do not knead or press too much dough for the perfect recipe.
  2. I made approx 1-inch diameter and ½-inch thick ball shapes for Balushahi.
  3. All the procedures were performed by me using my hands.
  4. I used clarified butter for dough making and ghee for frying to get the perfect traditional taste. You can even use oil
  5. You can use unsalted butter in spite of ghee for making the recipe.
  6. Measurement is very important for this recipe. Make sure you take the ingredients in the right quantity.
  7. If your gas burner flame is not low simmer, then bring the frying pan out of flame in between the frying procedures.
  8. Sugar syrup – take sugar and water in a pan and cook until the sugar gets dissolved properly. Keep the gas on the simmer gas flame and keep stirring in between. Take syrup on a spoon take a drop on your fingertip and stick another fingertip on it. Now stretch both fingertips slowly. You will see a string will form now. This is the stage we required for Balushahi.
