How to Make Perfect Jalebi: English – Urdu Recipe

How to Make Perfect Jalebi


  1. Plain flour – 250g
  2. Cooking soda – 2 pinches
  3. Orange food color – as required
  4. Oil or Ghee – to fry


Mix 125 gm flour and cooking soda and make into a smooth and spongy batter using water as required.  Leave it overnight for fermentation.  Whisk the batter in the morning with remaining 125 gm flour add more water if required. Add food color as you like, and mix without any lumps. Make the consistency in such a way that when you take this batter and pour it from the top it should fall as a single thread. Heat up oil or ghee in a flat bottomed fry pan. Take a thick cloth and make a small hole. Stitch the corner of the hole. Pour the batter into this cloth and fold the corners closely and press slowly into the hot oil to form coils side by side. Cook till they are light golden color. Remove and drain the oil. Keep this in the warm sugar syrup and soak for five minutes. Remove each jalebi slowly and serve in a plate.

For sugar syrup:

  1. Sugar – 3 cups
  2. Water – 2 cup
  3. Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp
Make one string sugar syrup by adding little water to the sugar. Add saffron and cardamom powder to the syrup. Remember syrup should be warm when you put fried jalebi in it, not too hot, otherwise the jalebi will be damaged. Make sure that the syrup’s consistency is only 1 string when it cools down, not when it’s hot, because otherwise, the jalebi will become rock hard.
