  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups hung curd
  • 1⁄2 cup ghee
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 saffron strands
  • 1⁄2 tsp green cardamom, powdered
  • 1⁄2 cup corn flour
  • pinch baking soda
  • 2 cups sunflower oil
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 drops rose essence
  • 1⁄2 tsp edible food color


To Prepare:

Soak the Jalebis in sugar syrup and serve

  1. Soak jabelis in warm sugar syrup for 3 to 4 minutes. Do not soak for too long or jabelis will go limp and soggy.
  2. Transfer jabelis to a tray lined with foil. Top off with creamy rabri and serve warm.

Recipe Notes

To make the jalebi even more delicious, add a little bit of ghee to the batter, this will give your jalebi that perfect aroma. To the crispy Jalebi, don't forget to ferment the batter overnight.
