Recipe By – Rusna Chowdhury

We ‘ll Need: 1 cups self-raising flour, 1 Teble spoon Corn flour , 1 Table spoon Besan, 1/2 tsp baking powder , 2 Table spoon Yogurt , 2 drops orange food colour ( Optional ) 1 Table Spoon Ghee Or Oil . Cooking oil (Vegetable , Canola) (for deep frying ) 1 cup sugar, few strands saffron, 1/4 tsp cardamom powder

How to Prepare: Mix the flour, baking powder and yogurt into a batter and keep aside for Over Night To ferment. Pour batter into a ketchup dispensing bottle.
** To make sugar syrup: Melt the sugar with the rose water and boil to get a one thread consistency. To check

For one thread consistency, carefully dip the tip of your index finger into the syrup, touch your finger and thumb together and gently tease apart. If one thread is formed between your finger and thumb the syrup is done.
Turn off the fire, add the saffron strands and cardamom and stir well.**

Heat the oil in a deep wok-like dish Or Deep Frying Pan . To test for the right temperature, drop a small amount of batter into the oil. If it sizzles and rises to the top of the oil, the oil is hot enough. Keep the flame on medium at all times to ensure all round cooking of the jalebis.
Now hold the ketchup dispenser over the hot oil and squeeze the batter into the oil into a wiggly, randomly coiled circle. Squeeze out several at a time. Fry till light golden and then remove and put directly into the sugar syrup. Allow to soak for 2-3 minutes and then remove.its ready. Serve warm.Enjoy
