    Directions

    Getting ready:

    Sieve refined flour in a bowl.

    instant jalebi

    Rinse urad lentil thoroughly with water. Drain out excess water and soak it for 2 hours and grind it into a fine paste. Keep it aside in a bowl.

    instant jalebi

    Peel the green cardamom and prepare a fine powder of its seeds.

    instant jalebiMaking:

    Add baking powder and red food colour into the sieved refined flour. Mix everything really well. Now add water in small portions and whisk until the lumps dissolves completely.

    instant jalebi

    Mix ground urad lentil to the refined flour batter. Stir to mix the lentil paste well into the batter. Prepare a batter with pouring consistency. It should not be too thick or too thin. We used ¾ cup of water for making this batter. Keep the batter aside.

    instant jalebi

    Meanwhile, prepare sugar syrup for jalebi. Take a vessel with sugar along with 1.5 cup of water. Place the vessel on flame. Let it simmer until the sugar dissolves completely into the water.

    instant jalebi

    After the sugar dissolves completely let the syrup cook for 4-5 minutes more. Then check its consistency. For that, take 1-2 drops of syrup in a bowl and let it cool down completely. Take the syrup between fore-finger and thumb then stretch the fingers apart. There should be a small formation of thread. Sugar syrup of jalebi should be of one thread consistency.

    instant jalebi

    Sugar syrup is now ready. Turn off the flame. Place the vessel on a net stand. Squeeze half lemon or add 1 tsp of lemon juice to it. This will prevent the syrup from crystallizing.

    instant jalebi

    Now add ground green cardamom powder to the syrup. Mix everything really well. Sugar syrup for jalebis is now ready.

    instant jalebi

    Heat enough ghee in a pan or a wok to deep fry jalebis. Let the ghee melt completely. Place the cone over a glass and fill it with batter. Cut down the cone at the pointed end to make a small hole. Make a thin cut for making thin and crisp jalebis.

    instant jalebi

    Ghee for frying jalebis should be more hot then medium. Hold the cone above the pan and squeeze it while moving the wrist in circular motion to make round jalebis. Place as much jalebis as possible into the pan. Don’t over crowd the ghee.

    instant jalebi

    When jalebis gets fried from one side then flip the sides with the help of a thin rod or fork. Keep frying them until they get golden brown and crisp.

    instant jalebi

    After that, take out the fried jalebis on a slotted ladle to drain excess ghee. Then dip them in the sugar syrup and let them absorb the syrup well. Keep them drenched in syrup for a minute or so. Meanwhile, fry the rest of the jalebis and dip them in sugar syrup likewise.

    instant jalebi

    After sometime, when the jalebis absorb the sugar syrup well then transfer them to a serving plate. Instant jalebis are now ready. It takes 3-4 minutes for frying jalebis of one batch.

    Serve these crispy, crunchy and juicy instant jalebis as it is as a dessert.

    Suggestions

    • While making the batter make sure that the batter is not too thick or too thin in consistency.
    • When making the sugar syrup, add 0.75 portions of water than sugar. Let the sugar simmer until it dissolves completely. Cook for 3-4 minutes more until you see formation of small threads.
    • The ghee for frying the jalebis should be little more hot than medium. If the ghee is less hot while frying then the jalebis will not puff up. If the ghee is too hot then the jalebis will burn quickly. So, make sure that the ghee is just little hot than medium.

      Mam, I tried making instant jalebi for my guests yesterday but the jalebis didn’t came out crispy. Jalebis were thick and soggy. What to do?

      • Nisha Madhulika

        Make a small cut at the bottom of the cone and don’t soak the jalebis in sugar syrup for too long.

    • Mohammed Furqan

      Thank You Madam, For Such a lovely and of course tasty recipe (:
      Everyone loved it so much but the only problem was that the jalebi wasn’t very thick although the batter consistency was perfect. I think its because I used Ketchup bottle. But Overall it was Awesome. Thank You :)…

      • Nisha Madhulika

        Mohammed Furqan : Use a cone next time you make jalebi. Thanks for sharing your cooking experience.
