Ingredients list for Kesari Jalebi

  • 1 1/2 cups Refined Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Saffron
  • 2 1/2 cups Sugar
  • a few strands Saffron (kesar)
  • to deep fry Ghee


  1. Mix flour and soda bi-carbonate. Add water and make a smooth batter taking care that there are no lumps. Leave it overnight to ferment.
  2. Just before making the jalebis whisk the batter again, adding a little water if necessary to make the batter of pouring consistency. Boil sugar and two cups of water together for twenty minutes to make syrup.
  3. Dissolve saffron in warm water and add it to the sugar syrup. Take a very thick square cloth with a side measuring eight inches, make a three millimetre hole in the center, hold the edges together to make a bag.
  4. Pour the jalebi batter into this bag. Heat sufficient ghee to deep fry in a frying pan and pour the batter from the bag into the hot ghee in a circular shape making a couple of circles, one outside the other.
  5. Deep fry till golden and crisp. Drain and soak in the sugar syrup for five minutes. Drain and serve.
