To prepare sugar syrup mix equal quantities of sugar and water. Add cardamom powder and cook for twenty minutes. Heat ghee in a jalebi tawi or a flat kadai or a frying pan. Pour batter into a jalebi cloth and then pour it into medium hot ghee giving it a jalebi shape.
Start from outside to inside for better results. Deep fry till golden and crisp. Drain and soak in the sugar syrup for five minutes. Drain and serve hot.
