Traditionally they used to ferment the batter using the old batter and besan. A good fermented batter results in crispy jalebis. But don’t expect that you make perfect round-shaped at the very first try, it need practice. After all the taste matters, not the size.

Varieties of Jalebi
The thickness of the Jalebi creates different variations. While some like a bit thick Jalebi, some enjoy the crispy spirals. Personally I like hot crispy ones with rabdi. You can add a pinch of turmeric powder to the batter. It will result in a nice colorful Jalebis. Also, saffron can be added to the sugar syrup. It brings a distinct flavor to it.
