  • Sugar - 2 cups
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Orange red food colour - a pinch
  • Vegetable oil - 3 cup
  • Lime Juice - 1/2 lime
  • Rose essence - 3 drops


Step 1

Step 3

Add few drops of water to make it grind easier.

Step 4

Grind it to a very smooth paste. This smooth paste makes Jalebi and it depends on how smooth the dal grind. Add food colour to the batter and mix well.

Step 5

In a zip-lock bag, cut its tip to make a small hole and spoon or swirl (ചുറ്റുക ) in the batter. The hole in the zip lock bag shouldn't be too small nor too big.

Step 6

Heat vegetable oil in a pan , once the oil is very hot, lower the heat and squeeze batter in hot oil in small circular motion starting from outside and ending in the middle.

Step 7

Fry jalebis into crisp, slightly golden brown in colour and immediately add to warm sugar syrup.

Step 8

Soak the jalebi for about 5 minutes and then place on a plate.
