Diplicious Jalebi

Jalebi, one of india's greatest inventions, is quite an art to make as you can see. The entire process takes less than ten minutes.After frying, it is soaked in "chasni" - "liquid sugar". wouldn't miss it for the world though - goes very well after "kachori" - a hot spicy treat and you may need to  go10KM run!

2. ½ liter Refined Oil, for Deep frying
3. 1/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk
4. 1 1/2 cups sugar

Close the bowl with the lid,leave it overnight at room temperature and add the remainig flour in the next day morning,blend with some ghee.

Heat the vessel,add sugar,maitain the flame,add little bit water and then sugar for making a stringy syrup.Add saffron in the bowl.Now the syrup will change into an attractive color and gives more fragrance.
