Jalebi An Indian Sweet Dish

• 2 cups All Purpose Flour
• 1-1/2 tbsp Rice flour
• 1/4th tsp Baking powder
• 2 tbsp Curd
• 3 cups Sugar
• 2-1/2 cups Water
• 1/2 tsp Cardamom (powdered)
• Ghee or Vegetable oil for frying
How to make Jalebi:
Mix the flour, rice flour, baking powder, curd in a bowl.

Mix well, add water and whisk until smooth.

Set aside for about 2 hours to ferment.

Whisk thoroughly before use.

Prepare one string syrup by dissolving sugar in the water.

Just before the syrup is ready add cardamom powder.

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan or kadhai.

Pour the batter in a steady stream into the kadhai to form coils.

Make 4-5 at a time.

Deep fry them until they are golden and crisp all over but not brown.

Remove from the kadhai and drain on kitchen paper and immerse in the sugar syrup.

Leave for at least 4-5 minutes so that they soak the syrup.

Take them out of syrup and serve hot.

Jalebi is ready.
