Jalebi ( Deep Fried Indian Sweet)

Jalebi is probably one of the sweet which I stayed away for such a long time thinking that it is a complicated one to make...So when srivalli announced this dish for Indian Cooking Challenge,I was a little bit nervous...But I thought to give this a try..

And It cameout quite good..I am giving you step by step recipe for this...So you too can prepare it at home..

This recipe is really simple to make and it taste great..Traditionally they serve it piping hot with some milk poured on top..It taste divine..

If you have never heard about jalebi, it is a deep fried Indian sweet which is then drenged in sweet sugar syrup..It taste more or like honeycomb..Yes HONEYCOMB...

So here you go...


All purpose flour / Maida - 100 gm
Curds / Yoghurt - 1 cup
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Cornstarch / Cornflour- 30 gm
Hot oil - 1 tbsp
saffron color/food colouring-1 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - ½ cup
Oil for deep frying


Mix flour,cornflour,limejuice,curd,food colouring till it forms a thick batter.

Heat oil and pour hot oil over this and mix well..Let this ferment overnight.

Heat sugar and water in a sauce pan for 5 mins till it gets transparent and syrupy consistency.

Heat oil for deep frying..

Now take the jalebi batter and spoon it in the piping bag and pipe it in hot oil..

Fry it till crisp and light golden..Put this in hot sugar syrup and let it sit for 30 sec.

Take it out and serve hot with some milk..

Take all your ingrediants
Mix everything up

make this to a smooth paste

Heat oil till hot

Pour that over the batter and mix well...Let this ferment over night...

Now make the sugar syrup by taking sugar in a saucepan

add water to it

Heat it up

Bring that to a boil

Let it get syrupy and clear...It will take 5-7 mins
Spoon the fermented batter to a piping bag

pipe it in hot oil

Cook it for a min or two....Don't let it go so dark like this...I fried it too long

Drain it

Immerse in sugar syrup and let it sit for 30 sec...

I know that it looks Deliicous...........
