Few have visited India, but everyone could experience the spirit of Indian cuisine when eating Spanish churros with chocolate. But don’t be surprised. The thing is these popular sweets, like several others, derived from the iconic Indian dessert, jalebi.

Jalebi is popular in the Middle East. People cook it in South Africa and adore it in India. No wonder! After all, who would have thought that ordinary fried yogurt-based dough can be so tasty? The cooking process resembles chak-chak and partially baklava. Today we are going to share with you a delicious jalebi recipe.

Steps

1
Done

In a large bowl, mix the flour with semolina and baking soda. Add the yogurt, 1 cup (250 ml) of water, and stir the batter. Leave it for a couple of hours in a warm place.

2
Done

Make the sugar syrup: mix the sugar with the rest of the water, add the juice and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes after the boiling point.

3
Done

Transfer the batter into a pastry bag, a jar with a narrow neck, or a regular plastic bag.

4
Done

Fry the jalebi on both sides in a skillet with oil. They shouldn't touch the bottom but float on the surface (about 30 seconds from each side until golden brown).

5
Done

Place the jalebi in sugar syrup for only 15 seconds, then remove and place, for example, on an oiled baking sheet so that they harden. The dessert is ready!

It is important not to boil the syrup for too long. Don't try replacing the syrup with honey! It can't harden the right way. In general, the recipe is straightforward and family-friendly. In Iran, to increase the flavor of the delicious dish, they add saffron, cinnamon, and other spices to jalebi. Serve this Indian snack with milk or hot tea. We hope you enjoy our video recipe!

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
