Jalebi

Do you remember the old advertisement on the television.....how an angry kid left his house and went to the railway station to leave the place as he thought none loves him and his grandpa took him back to the house showing him the temptation of jalebi.....I still giggle whenever the I remember the way the boy said "Jalebi!!!"...
As a kid I never liked sweets much.....but every thing changed when I came here in Bangalore...Now I always look for jalebi with hot spicy samosas...otherwise I almost faint while eating the spicy samosas :P...So I tried my hands this time on jalebis and here I come with the recipe :


Ingredients :


1.Wheat flour- 1 cup
2. Urad daal flour- 1/4 cup
3. Sodium bicarbonate- 1 tsp
4. Sesame oil- 2 tbs
5. Food color- 1/2 tsp
6. Oil for deep frying
7. Sugar- 300g
8. Water- 240 ml
9. Saffron- few strands


Procedure :




Mix wheat flour , urad daal flour , sodium bicarbonate , sesame oil  and food color. Mix them well and add water slowly (around half a cup). Keep stirring the batter while adding water. Check the consistency frequently. The batter should not be too watery or too thick , it should be semi thick. Now keep it in a jalebi maker.
In a shallow pan heat oil for deep frying the jalebis. Meanwhile prepare the sugar syrup for it. In a pan add water and sugar and bring it to boil , then reduce the heat and simmer it for another 5 minutes. If needed , sieve it once to remove any kind of impurities. Add saffron strands to add flavor to the syrup. 
Now if the oil for deep frying is ready , pour the batter with the help of the jalebi maker in a circular motion , starting from the center and finally sealing the end in the outer layer. Fry the jalebis on medium heat until they turn crispy and dark in color. Take them out when they are done and immerse them in the warm sugar syrup for 30 seconds. Serve them hot or cold.
