How to make jalebi

Let us start with making the batter first we have 1 cup refined flour, add 1/3 tbsp of baking powder and mix it well. Add less than 1/2 pinch red food color to mixture as well. Keep the batter aside. Now add water in small portions and prepare the batter. 

Stir the flour until lumps dissolves completely. Now add ground urad dal to this batter. We soaked 1/4 cup urad dal for 2 hours and grind it finally so we already have the grind dal.

Mix this ground urad dal to the refined flour batter. We are done with making the batter. The batter has pouring consistency. It's not too thick or too thin in consistency. We used less than 1 cup of water for making this batter. We used 3/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of water is still left.

Now let us prepare the sugar syrup for the jalebies. Add 2 cups of sugar in any vessel Add 1.5 cup of water to the sugar let the syrup simmer until the sugar dissolves completely. Let the syrup simmer. Peel 5 to 6 green cardamons and make powder to add in the syrup. When the sugar dissolves completely,cook the syrup for 4 to 5 more minutes.

Let us check the syrup now. Pour the syrup and you will see that the last drop on the spoon falls really slowly for another test take 1 to 2 drops of syrup in a bowl and let it cool down. Take the syrup between your syrup and thumb and then stretch a part you will see small formation of thread. We need sugar syrup with one thread consistency and the formation of thread is really small. Sugar syrup is ready, turn off the flame and place the vessel on a net stand.

We have got clean syrup as the sugar for dirt free. But if the sugar has any kind of dirt or is impure then while preparing the syrup add 1 to 3 tbsp milk to it. Remove the forms on the surface using a ladle and you will have clear syrup. Syrup is ready ; squeeze half lemon or 1 tbsp lemon juice to it. This will prevent syrup from crystallizing.

Also now mix the ground cardamon powder to it mix well. Now heat enough ghee for frying the jalebi. The oil is well heated. Now fill a cone with the batter for making the jalebi. Usually we get a special cloth for making the jalebies, but you can use this plastic cone as well you can also use the sauce bottle for making the jalebies. Place the cone over a glass and fill it with the batter. Cut down the batter at this end to make a small hole. 

Make a very thin cut , as the big hole is the bigger will be jalebies. Let us check if the ghee is ell heated. The ghee for frying  jalebies should be more hot then medium. We need medium- high hot ghee for frying jalebies. Drop a little batter to the ghee to see it's well heated. The ghee is sufficiently hot.

Keep the flame medium. Let start making the jalebies hold the cone and push to make round jalebies. We are using desi ghee for frying the jalebies but you can use any other cooking oil as well. Place as many jalebies as possible in the wok and fry. Flip the sides of jalebies when roasted you cam use a rod or fork for flipping the sides. Continue frying the jalebies until they get golden brown and crispy. Keep the flame medium - low.

Jalebies have turned crispy and golden brown drain them out and soak them in syrup. First take them out on a ladle to remove the extra ghee and then soak them in the syrup. Keep the drench in syrup for a minute or so meanwhile let us prepare another batch of jalebies . Fry all the jalebies similarly. The jalebies have soaked syrup rightly. Now place them on a plate similarly, prepare rest of the jalebies as well re-fill the cone with more batter when required.

We are done with making jalebies and it take 3 to 4 minutes for frying jalebies at once. Lip smacking and crispy instant jalebi is ready.
