Deep - Fried Pretzel - Shaped Sweets
(Jalebis)
What You Need:
JALEBIS
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup rice flour
  • ¼ teaspoon double-acting baking powder
  • 2 cups lukewarm water (110°F to 115°F)

    SYRUP
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons yellow food coloring
  • 1/8 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon rose water
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying

  • How To Cook:
    JALEBIS:
    1. In a deep bowl, make a smooth batter of the all-purpose and rice flours, baking powder and lukewarm water. Let the batter rest unrefrigerated and uncovered for 12 hours.

    SYRUP:
    1. Just before frying the jalebis, prepare the syrup: Combine the sugar, cold water and cream of tartar in a 3- to 4-quart saucepan. Stir over moderate heat until the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat to high and, timing it from the moment the syrup boils, cook briskly, undisturbed, for 5 minutes. The syrup is done when it reaches a temperature of 220°F on a candy thermometer.

    2. Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the coloring and the rose water. Pour the syrup into a bowl and set it aside. Pour 3 cups of vegetable oil into a 10-inch karhai or 12-inch wok, or pour oil into a deep fryer to a depth of 2 to 3 inches.

    3. Heat the oil until it reaches a temperature of 350°F on a deep-frying thermometer. To make the jalebis, spoon 1½ cups of the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a plain tube 3/16 inch in diameter. Squeezing it directly into the hot oil, loop a stream of batter back and forth 4 or 5 times to form a sort of pretzel made up of alternating figure 8s and circles, one over the other.

    4. Each jalebi should be about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide. In batches of 5 or 6, fry the jaleb is for 2 minutes, or until golden on both sides. As they brown, transfer them to the syrup for a minute, then place them on a plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    To Make: about 5 dozen
