JALEBI

Jalebi is one of many Sweet delicacies that can be found in the Indian 'Sweetmeats' range.  This is usually a very time consuming product to make, but today Madina Mukadam shared with us an easy and fuss free way to make these sweet treats.

A perfect treat to munch on, or take along to a function, like Madina had done recently, when she had to attend a Mendhi/Henna ceremony. These Crunchy and Syrupy Jalebis, must have been a hit Madina, Thank you for sharing with us, and we LOVE it ๐Ÿ’•

I think I am going to give this one a try...someday soon :-), HOW ABOUT YOU???

Oil for frying
Squeezy tomato sauce bottle for batter

Syrup
2 cups white sugar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
A few saffron strands
Boil all together till you get one string consistency, Lower heat and keep on low flame to keep syrup warm

Heat oil for deep frying in pan, using bottle with batter, make rings starting from centre going out, when crisp on one side turn over and fry on other side.
Remove from oil and immediately put into sugar syrup, after a few seconds turn over so that both sides are coated...
