Instant Jalebi & Erivum Puliyum Turns One Today :-)

How fast time flies off ?A Year has passed since the day I started blogging..A long way of 12 months,but when I sit back and think it was like yesterday.Two of my friends I still remember Sadhana @ Sensible Vegetarian and Priya @ Now Serving were the initial ones who visited my space at the initial posts and my first blogger friends.They encouraged me with their lovely inspiring comments and that's how this space of mine went on further with many friends reached this milestone.No stats,no page views,no followers list to elaborate - Just a word of Thanks to all my dear buddies (not listing one particular friend)who kept encouraging my recipes all throughout the year.Yes,friends am humbly honoured to have very good friends like you and hope that you will continue to keep the same spirits and drop your encouraging comments at my little space :-)

Coming to today's recipe - Instant Jalebis.Jalebi is one sweet which I can never resist eating though I am not a big fan of sweets..But this very sweet was always a frightening part (u know the reason ,the shapes looks complicated:-))I know it might be with many others too..But believe me,frenz..when I actually saw the video at Show Me The Curry it was like everyone could give this a try.The best part I liked about their recipe was this was very easy fermentation (usually jalebi require overnight fermentation) and that was the main reason I kept postponing ,and my first attempt to jalebis,they tasted good like the store  brought ones,We all just loved it :-)

all purpose flour 1 cup
yeast 1tsp
cardamom powder 1/8 tsp
warm water 3/4 cup
corn starch 2 tsp
yellow color 1/2 tsp (optional)
oil 1 tsp
yogurt 1 tbsp

for sugar syrup
sugar 1 1/4 cups
water 1 cup
saffron 1 pinch(optional)
lemon juice 1 tsp
cardamom powder 1/4 tsp

oil for frying

- Add the yeast in warm water and mix well till frothy and foamy.
- Mix thoroughly in a bowl,all purpose flour,cardamom powder,yeast,corn starch.
- Add the yogurt, yeast water,oil and mix well till there are no lumps.
- Take a larger bowl,add very warm water.Place the batter mixed bowl in it.(Cover the batter bowl other wise water from other bowl may slip into it and this helps in rapid rise,Place the bowls in an oven or any dark place)
-Rest the batter for 30 minutes,in the mean time after 15 minutes start preparing the sugar syrup.
-In a sauce pan,add sugar,water and bring to boil.Boil for 15 minutes.Reduce flame to simmer and add in the lemon juice and cardamom powder,mix.
-Heat oil in another pan to fry jalebis. Remove the jalebi fermented batter ,mix well and pur it in a ketchup bottle / ziploc bags.(I used a chocolate syrup bottle)
-Squeeze out the batter into the hot oil and make circular motions of your desired shapes and finish the ends in the middle so that the ends don't open up.
-Cook till the bottom side turns golden and puffs up ,flip the other side and cook .
-Remove from oil and shake the excess oil, place it directly into the prepared syrup.
-Allow the jalebis to remain in syrup for a minute both sides and remove unto the plate.
-Continue the same process for ther jalebis.
-Serve hot or serve cold .Keep it in a air tight container unrefrigerated ,remains good for 4 days.

Servings ~ 20 jalebis

* You can put off the flame of sugar syrup if it starts becoming thick.
* You can either use yellow food color to batter or use saffron to the syrup.Both together is not required.I used yellow color.
* There is no much wastage of sugar syrup its just required amount.
