How to Make Perfect Jalebi

How to Make Jalebi or Coin Paratha: English – Urdu Recipe


  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.
