Aate ki Balushahi

Aate ki Balushahi and No Maida

Balushahi made with wheat flour and no maida offers a wholesome and healthier take on this traditional Indian sweet. The process begins by combining whole wheat flour with other essential ingredients such as yogurt or curd, ghee, and a pinch of baking soda. The absence of refined all-purpose flour (maida) aligns with a more nutritious approach, as whole wheat flour retains more of its fiber and nutrients.

The dough is then carefully kneaded to achieve the right consistency before being shaped into small discs and deep-fried to golden perfection. The result is a batch of Balushahi that maintains the classic flakiness and crispiness but with the added benefit of the nutty flavor and nutritional value of whole wheat. The use of ghee adds a rich and buttery taste to the Balushahi, enhancing the overall indulgence without compromising on the health-conscious choice of using whole wheat.

To complete the treat, the wheat flour Balushahi can be dipped in a light sugar syrup, allowing them to absorb just the right amount of sweetness. The finished Balushahi offers a delightful combination of textures – the outer layer crispy and flaky, while the inside remains soft and melt-in-your-mouth. This version of Balushahi not only preserves the essence of this beloved sweet but also caters to those looking for a wholesome, whole-wheat alternative that doesn’t compromise on flavor or tradition.
