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.....
