Ingredients:

  1.  Maida Flour/ All-Purpose Flour (500 g)
  2. 1 tsp Baking Powder
  3. 1 cup plain Yoghurt
  4. 1 drop Vanilla essence
  5. 2 drops of food colouring
  6. 2 cups ghee for frying (can also use cooking oil)
  7. 4 cardamon pods
  8. Water

  1. 2 cups Water
  2. 2 cups Sugar

Method:

  1. Sieve the flour and mix the baking powder.
  2. Add yoghurt and cardamon to the flour.
  3. Make a batter by adding water.
  4. Cover the batter and set aside for fermenting for a few hours.
  5. Add Vanilla and food colouring to the batter.
  6. Mix the batter well.
  7. Add Sugar and Water in a pot and boil it to make syrup.
  8. Heat oil or ghee in a frypan.
  9. Fill the batter in a kitchen funnel or piping bag and pour it in hot ghee.
  10. Fry both sides of Jalebi on medium heat till crisp.
  11. Pour the hot fried jalebies in syrup to make it sweet. Let it soak the syrup for few minutes.
  12. Remove from syrup and serve. Fresh Jalebies will be nice and crisp.

Note:

  1. If you do not have a kitchen funnel or piping bag than you can use a plastic bag. Make a small hole in a plastic bag, pour the batter in that bag and squeeze it out.
  2. Keep your hand or finger on the exit hole of the bag to prevent it dropping all over the cooking surface.
  3. Pour the batter through the bag hole in  circular motion, starting from a smaller circle and going to larger.
  4. Colour is optional.
