Any traditional meal is incomplete without a sweet dish, that’s how fragrances of sweets are deeply entrenched into the Indian psyche.

“Jalebi” which is a fried sweet soaked generously in sugar syrup has no doubt can hit your calorie parameter up. But it’s difficult to resist when you come across them . And in some part of the country people even enjoy this at the end of breakfast .

People having that Big Sweet tooth hardly think twice before popping a ladoo or two into their mouth.A lover for sweet can easily be spoilt for choice in this land of sweet.

In Indore the combination of poha & jalebi is quite a famous breakfast and if you are in Rajasthan in wintry days, don’t miss the charm of having doodh-jalebi where Jalebi is served with fragrant milk .

It is believed in Ayurvedic treatment that eating Jalebi made in pure Ghee with a glass of milk in morning works for migraines.

Now coming to it’s preparation , it’s very easy to make at home.The only thing is you need patience and a little preparation .

A good fermented batter results 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 😉

Instructions
  1. In a bowl mix flour with baking soda. Add 1/2 cup curd and mix .Add little more curd and make a smooth batter with no lump.You may not need the whole 1 cup curd to make the batter.Cover it and let it ferment for 8 to 12 hour at room temperature.
  2. To make sugar syrup boil sugar,water at medium flame till you get a string consistency.You don't need a very thick syrup.So it will take 7 to 10 minute.Add rose water once it's done.
  3. After fermentation mix the batter well again. You can add food color at this point if you like ,i really don't prefer. Rather i add a pinch of turmeric which give a nice color.
  4. Take a pipping bag ,pour few spoons of batter .Cut the tip to make a small opening.
  5. Heat oil .To check temperature of oil ,drop a little batter & it will immediately come up. So you can start making your jalebi at medium flame.
  6. Squeeze the batter and make spirals .Reduce the flame a bit. Fry both side till they change color and crispy. Keep them on kitchen paper.
  7. Soak them in warm sugar syrup immediately for a minute or two , take them out into a plate.
  8. Serve immediately to get that crunchy effect.
