Jalebi

 It's dessert time for me.. Yeah, I made jalebi and  it was really very yummy. This is one of the most favourite street foods apart from chaat items. It really brings back my chennai hostel days, cos, there we used to have a roadside shop where they make this everyday. But I never had the chance to eat this once since my parents strictly warned me not to eat from roadside shops. And I  am always amazed at their perfection of making jalebi's within a fraction of time.. I's never happy those days cos I've always felt homesick..
Adapted from : Saras's Kitchen


Ingredients :

All purpose flour -- 1 cup
Yoghurt -- 1 tbsp
Corn flour -- 2 tsp
Sugar -- 1 tsp
Salt -- a pinch
Oil -- 1 tsp
Yeast --1 tsp (rapid rise yeast)
Warm water -- 3/4 cup

For syrup :
Sugar -- 1 1/4 to 11/2 cups
Cardamom powder -- a pinch
Saffron -- 2 to 3 strands
Water -- 1 cup
Lemon juice -- 1 tsp

Method :
  • In a mixing bowl combine all purpose flour,corn flour, yeast, salt,sugar, yoghurt and oil with warm water and mix well, without any lumps. Cover the bowl with a cling film and keep the contents in a warm place for 30 mts, else preheat the microwave to 1 minute and keep the bowl inside the microwave for 30 minutes. By the time, the batter would be doubled.
  • Prepare the syrup by mixing the sugar with water and stir till it dissolves. Just bring the sryup to a boil and turn the heat to the lowest available setting in ur stove. U may check the temperature of the syrup with a candy thermometer also, range is 200 F /95 C . Add the cardamom powder, saffron strands, lemon juice to the syrup while simmering and mix well.

  • Heat the oil until it's hot ,not smoking hot though . In the meantime, transfer the batter into a piping bag / ziplog bag with a hole in the center / ketchup bottle and make it ready.
  • Squeeze the batter into the hot oil in circles and fry them both sides till they get completely cooked. Drain the jalebi's and dunk the jalebi's in syrup for a minute and transfer to a plate.
  • Repeat the same process for the remaining batter and serve warm with rabdi / eat as such..
