- 5 strand saffron (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon powdered green cardamom (optional)
Step by Step Process
1. How to make batter
In a large bowl mix together flour (maida), curd water to form a flowing consistency batter.
Cover the batter and let the batter sit for 10-12 hours to ferment. It may took more time if it is at cold place. You see small bubbles on top of the batter once it has fermented.
After fermenting, whisk the batter a little. You may need to add little water [around 1 tablespoon] if batter looks too thick at this point.
2. How to prepare Sugar Syrup
Add sugar and water to a pan and let it all come to a boil for min 8-10 min on minimum flame. Once it comes to a boil, add cardamom powder, saffron strand and lemon juice. Keep the syrup warm while you make the jalebis.
3. Fry Jalebi in oil/ghee
Transfer jalebi batter into a squeeze bottle/ziplock bag and make small hole oneside. The one I used had a very small tip hence the thin jalebis(as per your choice). Heat oil/ghee in a pan or kadai. Keep heat to medium-low.
Squeeze batter in hot oil, making spiral motion/ jalebi shape from inside to outside. Remember to keep at low heat else you won’t be able to form the shape. You can add some flour if you found it’s more flowing . Once you have made the spiral shape with the batter, increase the heat to medium-high.
Fry till crisp from both sides. Remove from oil and immediately dip in warm sugar syrup, few seconds on each side is good enough.
Remove jalebis from the sugar syrup and transfer it to a serving plate.
