Jalebi for Indian Cooking Challenge !

This month’s Indian Cooking Challenge is another sweet,Jalebi ! In fact I already have a Jalebi recipe at my space here.Yet I have tried this since the ingredients were somewhat different.This one has maida as the main ingredient where as I used black gram to prepare mine.The end result differ too.This one is made of a fermented batter which has left that peculiar sour twist to the Jalebis.I really enjoyed this version of Jalebi.Thanks Srivalli for the Jalebi recipe…


For the batter

100 gm Maida/All purpose flour
1 to 1.5 cup yoghurt (depends on your batter)
1 tsp lime juice
1 tbsp hot oil
30 gm cornstarch
pinch of colour

oil,as needed

For the Sugar Syrup

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water


Combine all the ingredients in the batter section except the oil which is mentioned under, meant to fry the jalebis.Add the yoghurt slowly and make a thick batter.Allow this to ferment overnight.

Before you start making Jalebi,start preparing the sugar syrup.Bring the sugar and water to a boil and dissolve sugar.Simmer till  it turn to one string consistency.Now make sure the syrup to be warm till you finish frying all jalebis.Heat oil in a medium skillet and shift the batter into a piping bag or sauce bottle which has a thin hole.The heat should be medium and now squeeze the batter to round shaped thin coils .

Fry both the sides and then shift to the warm sugar syrup.

Repeat the process and as you drop new jalebis to the syrup,you may take out the older ones.Serve Warm.
