I followed this recipe for a smaller proportion and it came out very well!!
@Veena: Do you remember how hot the oil was? Cos too much heat can disintegrate the dough...

Sorry it didn't work for me. I followed the recipe exactly but badhushas started melting as soon as I put them in oil for frying. I am not sure but the ghee proportion may need to be adjusted here. i thought it's too much ghee.
