Jalebi's for August ICC

My 2nd experience in ICC.The challenge for August month was Jalebi's the main thing I liked about the recipe was it was simple and as my family love this sweet i wanted to try..and it came out well..though the shape was not professional we all loved the taste,guess will improve as i practise..i used a ziploc bag to pipe the batter in the hot oil,next time would try with a squeezy bottle.

Going to the recipe
Hot Oil-1 tblsp
Food color-a pinch

For the sugar syrup:
Water-1/2 cup


Batter Preparation:
Measure the maida,cornflour,food colour,lime,curd,hot oil and beat the mixture so it is mixed well without any lumps.Keep this batter on the kitchen counter overnight to ferment.

Sugar Syrup:
Heat the measured sugar and water and mix till the sugar is melted and then bring to a boil till it reaches a single string consistency.

Boiling syrup

Warm Sugar Syrup

1.Now next day take the prepared batter and mix it well once again and spoon to a ziploc bag(I used this)/ a squeezy bottle.

2.Make a small as possible cut on one corner of the ziploc bag.
3.Heat oil in a kadai till it's hot and pipe the batter in 2/3 rounds directly onto the oil and fry till crisp and careful not to burn(as get's burnt easily) manage the heat accordingly.
Jalebi!! Excuse me for the shape..
4.Take the fried jalebi's and dip in the sugar syrup for a minute and drain and arrange on a dish.
5.Serve hot!Enjoy!

The entire batch!!!
