Are you looking for a simple way to make traditional Jalebi? Then this recipe is perfect for you. Jalebi is the most popular sweet in North India. It is also known as the national sweet of India eaten during festivals, weddings or any happy occassion. Jalebi goes well with curd or malai (cream).
Ingredients
  Maida 1 Pound
  Ghee/Cooking oil 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Sugar 2 Pound
  Water 1 Liter
  Saffron 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cardamom 2 (Use Inner Seeds Only)
Directions

1. With the maida (flour) and sufficient cold water, make a batter. The consistency should be similar to that of thick cream. Let it stand it in a warm place for 24 hours to ferment.

2. When ready, use a deep pan and bring to boil ghee or any other cooking oil. Fill an ordinary small funnel (plugging the bottom spout with your finger) with the batter. Hold the filled funnel over the oil and remove your finger to let the batter run into continuous streams to form double circles or figure eights. (May require a little practice)

3. Make about six to eight jallebies depending on the size of your pan. Allow them to set, and turn them.

4. When quite crisp and of a pale biscuit color, separate Jallebies and put them in flavored syrup. After two or three minutes take the Jallebies out of the syrup and drain.

5. To make the Syrup -- Boil water. Add sugar, saffron and cardamom seeds and boil til syrup turns thick. Keep syrup warm.
