Jalebi

There is nothing to beat the combination of warm Jalebi's and Hot samosa chat, why I'm so strong about this combo is, It has lots of memories to bring back for me.  I can still remember those care free days in my college life, when me and my friend used to enjoy this treat almost every other day.  We had a chat shop very close to our campus which offered these amazing jalebi's and chat at a very reasonable price so that students were able to afford for that very easily.  Probably that's one of the best jalebi's I ever had.  After that jalebi experience again the good one was in UK during Ramadhan.

In places like Southall ( guess I spelled it right ) , In the month of Ramadhan during Iftar, you can see lots and lots of Pakistani and Indian shops who have piles of fresh jaelibi's, which are just amazing too.  So jalebi's are always special to me.

  These special Jalebi's which is well know in Asia, is been originated from Iran.  Infact I have also seen a few Turkish and Arab sweet which is almost similar to Jalebi preparation except the shape is like churros.  Anyway the concept is same here, yeasted batter deep fried and then soaked in sugar.  I love this innovation by man.

So there are tons of recipes for Jalebi's available online, some suggest without yeast, natural fermentation method and some with yeast.  To me natural fermentation is bit challenging sometimes, so I went for the yeasted one.  I have adapted the recipe from Manjula's Kitchen, so click here to watch and read the recipe.  She has some amazing collection, here recipes can be trusted always, also she gives us a clear view about the recipe, do check out her site definitely.

A few tips for Jalebi's on my view:
Once the batter gets fermented, it might go a bit runny, in that case add very little amount of cornflour to thicken the batter.  Also if your yeast didn't work, add a pinch of bicarbonate of soda to the batter.  You can also tint the Jalebi's with orange or yellow colour by adding a few drops of food colouring to the batter.
Don't get disappointed if your Jalebi's shape are not good, practise will make you perfect.  Also one tip to get a good shape is, keep the flame in low and then pipe it in oil.

This Jalebi remind so=me o0f an TV advt for Dhara Oil which made the kid instantly famous as the jalebi boy and now with Bollywood songs like Jalebi Bai, the sweet has become immortal. I love Jalebi when they are crisp and hot, there were however not on my favorite list as growing up. After my marriage, I am in love with them.
Love Ash.
