    How to proceed

    1. Heat the ghee in a broad saucepan [the ghee should be approximately 25 mm. (1") deep].
    2. Fill the jalebi batter into a piping bag with a single hole nozzle or a thick colth with a small hole in the centre which is finished with button-hole stitch.
    3. Press out round whirls into the hot ghee working closely from outside to the centre of the whirl [approx. 50 mm. (2") diameter].
    4. Deep fry the jalebis till golden brown and transfer into warm sugar syrup.

    1. Do not allow the jalebi batter to overferment. Fry the jalebis immediately once the batter has rested for 10 minutes.
