Instant Jalebis, you would never have thought that jalebis can be made so easily!
Born in the north only to become famous all over India, the intricate jalebis have a somewhat chewy texture with a crystallized, semi-fermented, sugary exterior coating, which contributes to the unique flavour of this dish.
