Jalebi: Of course, 'The National Sweet of India’ and you will find this in every corner of our country during Republic Day or Independence Day celebrations. It’s a deep-fried, spiral-shaped sweet made with flour, gram flour, and sugar syrup.

How to make the best jalebis with Umanac food products

  • Mix the yogurt, baking soda, besan, and all-purpose flour in a bowl.
  • Add water & mix well to form a batter.
  • Add saffron for a traditional touch & colour.
  • Allow the batter to rest for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour to ferment.
  • Stir the water & sugar together in a saucepan. Once the sugar melts, bring it to a boil while stirring.
  • Let the syrup simmer until it thickens to the consistency of a single thread, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add Umanac all organic honey to the syrup, mix well, and then remove it from the heat. Keep it warm.
  • Preheat the ghee over medium heat.
  • Pour the jalebi batter into a piping bag fitted with a tiny hole or a squeeze bottle.
  • Squeeze the batter in a circular motion into the hot ghee to form spirals or pretzel-like shapes.
  • Fry the jalebis until they are crisp and golden brown. Make sure both sides receive the same amount of cooking.
  • Once the jalebis have finished cooking, take them from the ghee and immediately dip them into the warm sugar-honey syrup.
  • Serve the honey and ghee jalebis warm, garnished with chopped nuts if desired.
