This is one of the easiest jalebi's which doesn't need long hours of fermentation. I got this recipe from Manjula's kitchen. You can also watch how she makes the jalebi's in you tube. I made it yesterday and came out well.They were crispy and yum.Well some of my jalebi's looked like space ship,planets and butterflies coz I din't know the techniques how to squeeze traditional way, but it came out very delicious.
All purpose flour- 1/2 cup
Gram Flour-1 tsp
Luke warm water-1/2 cup
Dissolve yeast in 1 tsp water.Mix well. Add the flour,gram flour,sugar,oil along with 1/2 cup of Luke warm water and Mix well. make sure there is no lumps . Batter must be of pancake batter consistency.
Let it sit for 1 hour in a warn place.
Mean while make the syrup
In a saucepan add the sugar,water,cardamom,lemon juice and saffron. Stir on medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
To make the jalebi's
Pour the batter in a pastry bag with tip 5 and squeeze the batter in to the oil in circular motion.Deep fry both side until lightly brown. drain the oil from the jalebi's and dip it in hot sugar syrup for a few seconds.Take it out of sugar syrup and keep it aside for few minutes. Jalebi is ready to be served.
If you don't have pastry bags use a ziploc bags or a ketchup bottle.
