Pronounced Juhlaybee or Jeelaybee it is a delicious dessert. Jalebis are orange yellow in color and are about 3 inches in diameter. They are essentially deep fried batter in a coiled form soaked in sugar syrup. 

You get ready mixes like the Gits that I have tried and come out great or you can follow the recipe below.

To Make the Jalebis

  1. Heat the oil in a wok.
  2. Select a plastic bottle with a small hole in the lid and fill with the batter. ( A ketchup dispenser works great ) 
  3. Press the batter out from the bottle into the hot oil in the form of a jalebi (like a coiled serpent)
  4. Fry on both sides until light golden brown. Take out and place on a paper napkin. Wait for 1 minute.
  5. Drop the fried jalebis into the hot syrup. Leave for 2 minutes and then remove.
  6. Enjoy them warm. Store in an air-tight container.
