  • 2. If the dough is too soft, you need to add more maida. Similarly, if the dough is too tough, you need to add a little water to make it into a medium-soft dough.
  • 3. A low flame is used to make sure the badushas are cooked properly. If it is fried on medium or high flame, the dough will turn brown faster and will not be cooked on the inside.
