Jalebi / Jilebi !

Kids love sweets.So do my little princess.Jilebi or jalebi is one of her desi favourites.As a parent,I don’t want her to have more of these.Hence we have slowly developed a system where all types of sweets are presented to her only as a special gift,mostly when she achieve something.Safe game,isn’t it ?

This is my 4th day of Blogging Marathon,mini bites.Hope you all are enjoying this.Do check some awesome dishes my friends prepare for Marathon.

Over to the recipe..

Ingredients

1 cup Urad dal / de husked black gram,washed and soaked in water for one hour
1/4 tsp orange food colour
Oil,as needed


For sugar syrup

2 cups sugar
1.25 cup water
1 tbsp rose water

Method

Grind the soaked urad dal adding 1/4 to 1/2 cup water to a smooth paste.The batter needs a dropping consistency.Add the food colour to this and mix well.Now shift it either to a clean cloth having small button hole or an utensil / small bottle with thin hole (I used my sauce bottle).Meanwhile make the sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water.When it start boiling add the rose water and reduce the heat to minimum.Don’t switch off.On a nearby stove heat oil in a medium skillet.Fix the heat to medium.Now squeeze the batter to round shaped thin coils and fry both sides.Shift this suddenly to the sugar syrup.Repeat this process in batches.You may shift each batch from sugar syrup to a plate.Remember one thing,the syrup needs to be warm.Check the syrup in between whether it’s going thick.If so,adjust with water and continue making jalebis.
