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.

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.

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.
