For Jalebi Batter
For Sugar Syrup
Oil for frying
All Purpose Flour - 1/2 Cup
Corn Flour - 2 Teaspoon
Eno Fruit Salt - 1 Teaspoon
Vinegar - 1 Teaspoon
Water - 5 Tablespoon
Yogurt - 5 Tablespoon(can be added more for the right consistency of batter)
Orange Red Food Colour(optional)
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Water
1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice(optional)
For Sugar Syrup
How To Proceed
Put the sugar in a saucepan with the water and dissolve slowly over a low heat.
Allow to simmer till it thickens slightly. Keep skimming the impurities from the top using a perforated spoon as and when they come.
Combine all purpose flour, corn flour, vinegar and yogurt and whisk well.
Add water and whisk well.
If the batter is very thick yogurt can be mixed more to make the right consistency batter.
Add eno fruit salt and mix well.
Add orange red food colour to give it a more nice golden colour.
Select a ketchup bottle with a small hole in the lid and fill with the batter.
Heat the oil or ghee in a broad non-stick pan and press the bottle to form a coil shaped jalebi, starting from the inside to the outside.
Deep-fry till the jalebis turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
Place the fried jalebis into the warm syrup. Leave for 2 minutes or till they soak the sugar syrup well and then remove from the sugar syrup.
Always add eno fruit salt at the end when all the ingredients are well mixed. While frying the jalebi the oil or ghee should not be too hot to avoid burning and under cooking of jalebi. For juicy jalebi the sugar syrup should be warm while soaking them.
