Now the prefect occasion has come to prepare the my hubby is not so much found of cakes i decided to prepare Jelebi for his birthday...and give him a surprise.....and it was supper hit and success....I was so happy that even I can prepare Jelebi at home....and my hubby was really surprise to see the home made Jelebi....He really liked it very here is the recipe of the Jelebi I prepared....for my Valentine....

All purpose Maida (Flour) 1 1/2 cup
Corn flour 3TBSP
Bicarbonate of soda ¼ tsp
Lemon juice of 1/2 lemon (small)
Curd (yogurt) 1/2 cup
water 1/4 cup(use only as much required)
Hot oil 2tsp
Orange or yellow food colour: 2 or 3 drops(optional..I have used yellow)
Refined oil/Sunflower oil for Deep frying

For syrup
Sugar 1cup
Warm water 1/2 cups(use more if required)
Saffron stand few(optional)

How to prepare:

Well mix all purpose flour, baking powder, Corn flour,Bicarbonate of soda,curd (yogurt),lemon juice and water make a smooth batter and also add the food colour if u like to use(I have used yellow colour)keep aside the mixture to ferment. For at least 24hours...

To make the sugar syrup.
Mix the sugar saffron and water to dissolve it. .add only as much as required to dissolve.

Once the sugar is dissolved, boil it slowly until it becomes thick(a little less than one thread consistency).Then turn off the heat and Keep the syrup aside to cool down.

Now (after 24 hours)fill the batter in a ketchup bottle or fine muslin cloth with hole in to it..or can use even Cake piping bag.

Heat oil in a frying pan (preferable a wide bottom) and once it is hot reduce the flame to minimum and squeeze the batter in the shape of randomly coiled or spiral. Make 4 or 5 at a time depending on the size of your pan.

Deep fry them until they are golden brownish and crispy.
Remove Jalebi and immediately dip into the sugar syrup.Keep in the syrup for 2-3 mins so that they are soaked in sugar syrup. Then take them out of syrup and serve hot or cool.....
