Jalebi - Celebrating one month of my Blog Launch

Hurrey my blog is one month old today  ! !
I launched my blog on the last day of October 2008 and its a Month now happy blogging.
On this special occasion I have a sweet post.
Jalebis are my big time favorite sweet. During my childhood I used to get confused between Jalebi and Jangir. When in India anytime we feel like eating these sweets, we could go to the shop and grab. Being in Deutschland that is just impossible. I got to cook if I have to eat even the basic Indian food. I tried Jalebi and it came out well.

Ingredients :

  • Maida / All purpose flour : 1 cup (250gms)
  • Rice flour : 1 tea spn
  • Yeast : half tea spn
  • Sugar : 1 tea spn
  • Oil : 1 tbl spn
  • Warm water
Method of preparing Jalebi : 
  • Take a tbl spn of warm water and mix the yeast once it dissolves add rest of the ingredients and mix well. 
  • Make it into a semi thick batter. Leave this to ferment for about an hour in a warm place.
As an alternate to Yeast you can use Curd. When using curd you have to leave it for about 5 hours for fermentation.
Frying the Jalebi :  

  • Make a small hole in the bottom middle of the ziplock cover using a heated nail. Pour the batter into it and tie a rubberband. OR use sauce bottle to squeez. (I used a cone instead) 
  • Heat oil in a wide pan and squeeze the batter in circular motion on the oil. Make as many as you can at a time. 
  • Once they turn golden brown put them on tissue paper. 
  • Then put them into the hot sugar syrup(procedure given below), soak for 2-3 min and remove it and serve.
Note :  Do not add more Rice flour as it makes the Jalebi too crispy.
           Do not make too big hole in the cover.

Ingredients for sugar syrup : 

  • 1 cup sugar, qtr tea spn cardamom powder, saffron and water.
Making Sugar syrup : 
  • Add water and sugar into a vessel and keep stirring. To check if its done take a drop of syrup between ur thumb and forefinger, if it comes like a thread then its done. Else let it boil for some more time till you get the thread like consistency. 
  • Allas add saffron and cardamom powder stir and remove from flame.
*I used 'bake aroma' orange flavour and it turned out well.

I love this commercial that used to be featured in the television years ago

All - Thank you for each and every one for your comment. Jelabis taste great after a day or two I guess. It tasted very good than the first day.
