ShareJilebis are one of the few Indian sweets that I love... perhaps it's because they're not just sweet but have a sour tang to them that comes from fermenting the batter.
Jilebis are lovely to eat crisp and hot.


• Maida 2 cups
• Sugar ½ cup
• Water 1¼ cup
• Curd ¼ cup
• Rose water 1 teaspoon
• Soda bicarbonate a pinch
• Oil for deep-frying
• Salt a pinch
• Orange food colour-a pinch
Mix the flour, salt and curd to get a thick batter.
Allow the mixture to ferment for 7 hours.
Boil the sugar to get a syrup. Cool and add the rose water to this.
To the batter add the soda powder and mix well.
Heat the oil for deep frying and force the batter through a piping bag to form spirals.
Deep fry till golden brown and soak it in the sugar syrup and serve.
