Jalebi is one of those sweet dishes you must try when you are in India. To be honest, you’ll find Jalebis everywhere. But so far the best Jalebis I have tried was at the ‘Old Famous Jalebi Wala’ at Dariba Kalan, Chandni Chowk in New Delhi. They make jalebis in pure ghee.
Jalebis are made by deep frying flour (gram flour) batter in circular shapes in oil and then soaking in boiling sugar syrup after which they become orange in colour. Although Jelabis can be served both hot and cold, I prefer it when it’s hot after I’ve had some dinner (here’s what I would usually have for breakfast, lunch and dinner).
