Traditionally, we need to ferment the batter to make Jalebis. But, this is an Instant version without fermentation. We will prepare a batter from maida, besan, salt, baking powder, turmeric powder, curd, and water. The batter is dropped into the hot oil/ghee in a spiral shape and deep-fried until crisp. These little jalebis are allowed to immerse into cardamom, saffron, and lemon juice flavored sugar syrup.
