Mouthwatering Monday – Jalebi

Yumm Jalebi.

My childhood was full of Jalebi vali memory, as it was the sweet that every member of our family can agree on. Actually I was the only one who was a picky eater 😛

Seeing a Halwai (sweets maker) creating those round and overlapping circles in hot oil and then rushing to eat that hot juicy Jalebi, that was my favorite part.

So, this Diwali I thought of making Jalebi. It was my first time. So after much practice finally I got a batch that looked like this. 😎 Turned out pretty good, right?

Jalebi is served hot. But cold ones are delicious too. I love the combination of hot Jalebi with cool vanilla Ice cream. Weird, right? :O
