Type: Sweets, Dessert

Preparation time: 15-20 minutes

Cooking time: 20-25 minutes


  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1/4 th cup yoghurt
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 3-4 tbs yellow food color (optional)
  • Almost 1.25 cups of water (approximately)
  • For the sugar syrup: 3 cups of sugar, 1.75 cups of water, 2-3 crushed green cardamom pods,1 tsp lemon juice and 2-3 yellow food color (optional)


  • For the sugar syrup- In a pan add 3 cups of sugar to it add 1.75 cups of water
  • Mix it until dissolves
  • Add 1 tsp lemon juice to avoid crystallization
  • Then add 2 -3 crushed green cardamom pods for the flavor
  • Bring it to boil and then add 2-3 drops of yellow or orange food color (optional)
  • We don’t need a concentrated sugar syrup, just drop through the spatula , if the last drop falls the slowest then your sugar syrup is ready
  • Turn off the heat and keep it aside
  • For the batter- In a bowl add 2 cups of all purpose flour and then add 2 tsp oil,4 tbs or 1/4 th cup yoghurt and 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • Add 2-3 drops of yellow or orange food color but it’s optional
  • Give everything a quick mix
  • Then add water gradually to make a slimy batter, like we needed approximately 1.25 cups of water
  • We put the batter in a squeezy bottle
  • Heat oil on a medium flame for deep frying
  • Squeeze the bottle in circles round and round for 2-3 times and leave
  • Don’t worry about the shape,it’s a Jalebi after all
  • When the Jalebis rise up then flip it and keep on frying
  • When you see that the color of the Jalebis have now become dark flip again for the final time
  • Now take out and soak in the sugar syrup for 2-3 minutes and take it out
  • Keep on repeating the process
  • Garnish it with some chopped pistachios and it’s ready
  • Enjoy it with some milk or you can enjoy it with rabdi

  1. I was under the impression that the batter needs to be kept aside for few hours for fermentation before finally frying. Is it true?
