Instant Jalebis

Syrup soaked fried spirals

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Recipe ingredients:
1 cup flour
½ cup yoghurt
1heaped teaspoon baking powder
A pinch orange food color
Clarified butter(desi ghee) or any hydrogenated fat (like Dalda or Rath) to deep fry
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
Recipe method:
Put the sugar and water to boil. Reduce the flame and simmer till you attain a one string consistency. (about 15 minutes). To check consistency, take a drop of slightly cooled syrup between index finger and thumb and press together. Lightly raise the finger. If the syrup pulls up as well to get a thread, the syrup is ready. Remove from fire.
Mix well the baking powder into the flour. Add the yoghurt, food color and mix well. Add enough water to make a thick smooth batter.
Fill the batter in a piping bag or a cheese cloth in which a hole around 4mm diameter has been made.
Heat a 1” layer of fat or ghee in a shallow flat bottomed pan. The ghee should not be too hot.
Pipe the batter in circles and cross the circle to ensure that the spiral stays together. Pipe around 4-5 jalebis at a time. Allow the sizzle to die out a little and turn the jalebis when firm. Cook on a low flame till the bubbles die out. Fry to a light golden brown.
Remove the jalebis to a moderately warm syrup and allow the jalebis to soak the syrup(approx.. 3-4 minutes).
Serve hot.
