What is Badagi?

How to Make Pelamushi?

Sieve the flour and pour it with sugar into a bowl. Gradually add 500 ml of Badagi into the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until they are well mixed.
After mixing the sugar, flour, and badagi with a spoon, mix the ingredients well with an electric mixer.
Now, take a pot and pour 500 ml of badagi into it. Place the pot on heat and gradually add the flour/sugar/badagi mixture we prepared earlier.
