  3. After 12 hrs again mix the batter well and use .



Take sugar + water in a pan and cook for 10 – 12 minutes on medium flame. Add lemon juice and mix well to stop crystallization. Add the elaichi pwdr and mix well.The syrup should not be very thick.

Pour the batter in a jalebi maker bottle or sauce bottle or zip lock pouch with a hole or piping bag or  cloth with small hole.

  1. You can try this recipe without fermentation also.I have not tried.
  2. You can add saffron / rose essence to the syrup.
  3. Fry till crisp.
  4. You can serve jalebis with vanilla ice cream , rabri or fresh cream.
  5. You can add colour to the syrup also.
  6. Why not use rice flour instead of cornflour.
  7. If the batter is thin you can adjust with corn flour ..
  8. Some even replace cornflour with besan.
  9. While frying you can take half oil and half ghee.
  10. Oil has to be medium hot while frying.
