To make it is an art... sometimes it turns out to be hard or slightly undercooked in the center...

Every Diwali, my dad gets me a box of Balushahi, which I refuse to share with anyone. This article has inspired me to make my own Balushahi this year.

A think Balushahi has transcended the borders of Bihar now and has become an all India favorite.

I am very keen to make this popular sweet. But i am not sure whether ghee can bind maida and soda to knead into a soft dough. Pls explain.
