Badusha using Idhayam Mantra


Badusha using Idhayam Mantra

Badusha is a traditional Indian Sweet recipe. I have used Idhayam Mantra Groundnut oil and ghee to deep fry the badusha. Idhayam Mantra Groundnut oil is pure and unrefined and good for health. I have used a combination of groundnut oil and ghee as its very good for health and heals joint pains. Traditionally all deep frying was made using groundnut oil in days back during my great grandmother. From the time Idhayam introduced Gingerly oil, my family is using it for cooking. It is pure and heart healthy. You can visit them @Idhayam for more details.
