For all those lovely people who are in love - Jalebi

>> Thursday, February 17, 2011


I hope you all had a great V-day with your valentine, family and friends... And sorry for the belated wishes..

Now coming back to the post.. I've a special valentine's day treat for all of my blogger friends..It is Jalebi. :D

Jalebi!! Why this? Well this was my V-Day treat for Sree... Yes, I know you guys are wondering what's so special about jalebi.. Usually we have chocolates or cakes as V-Day treats but I thought of doing something different.. As this day is the most romantic day of the year.. So it must be celebrated uniquely.

The day before V-Day, I was discussing about the celebration with Sonal, my cousin and suddenly I came across the idea of preparing Jalebi and to add an extra twist of V-Day, we planned to make heart-shaped jalebis... So, now the secret is revealed.. They are not just jalebis.. They are heart-shaped Jalebis.. V-Day Jalebis..



The recipe is exact to normal Jalebi recipe except the way you make the final product.. Instead of those random circles, you got to make pretty hearts.. All depends on your imagination, play with the batter and enjoy the outcomes... ;)

Ingredients:

For Batter:
All-purpose flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1 tbsp
Yogurt - 3/4 cup
water - 1/4 cup
Salt - a pinch

For Sugar Syrup:
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup ( it must cover the sugar)
Green Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Saffron strands - 5
Lemon Juice - 1/2 tsp

Oil, for deep frying


Flower Jalebi with heart-shaped petals.. Click! Click!.. Crazy Me or Silly Me? Anyways I'm loving it!

Method:

Mix all-purpose flour and rice flour. Add yogurt and water and mix well to make a smooth batter. The batter shouldn't be watery. Add salt to taste. Let it rest overnight and next day morning the batter will be almost doubled. Mix it again to make a smooth batter.

In a shallow pan, add sugar and water and boil it for 10 mins on medium heat. Add cardamom powder, saffron and lemon juice. Mix well and leave the syrup on low heat.

Heat oil in a wide pan or kadai on medium flame.

Meanwhile, pour batter into a ziploc bag and make a small hole with metal skewer.

When you see small bubbles at the bottom of the pan, start making patterns with the batter into the oil. If the batter stays in oil for sometime and then rises up, the oil is at perfect temperature.

When the jalebis turn golden brown in color, remove them from oil and put them into sugar syrup. Let them rest in syrup for about 2 mins. Flip to get jalebis coated with sugar syrup on both sides.

Serve hot with rabri or just jalebi..


Enjoy!
