    To get the right consistency, add water if required. (You should be able to pass the batter through a small hole.) Keep this aside for 15 to 30 minutes for fermenting. Check in between, if the batter has risen or not.

    You can either make jalebi by using a sauce squeeze bottle or use a zip lock cover. I used zip lock cover, by making a small cut on one end.

    Mix the batter nicely which we had kept aside for fermenting. Pour it in the cover and squeeze through the opening directly into the hot oil. Make the shape of jalebi.

    When both sides are golden colour, take it from oil and directly put it in the hot sugar syrup. The syrup should be hot, so that the jalebi will absorb the sugar nicely.
