I have made jalebis but never jhangri...When Dhivya of Dhivya's Kitchen blog posted this recipe, i was very much tempted to try it out and it came out well. I didnt make any changes to the recipe.
1 cup blackgram dal
1 tsp rice flour
A bit of saffron colour
Oil to fry
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Soak the dal for about 3 to 4 hours. Grind it to a smooth paste without adding much water. Mix the colour and rice flour to it.
Make a sugar syrup and add the lemon juice to it to avoid formation of lumps.
I had a plastic bottle which my mom had got with a jalebi mix pack several years ago. In case you dont have one, you can use the ziploc method suggested by Dhivya.
Pour the batter into it and make jhangri in medium hot oil. When cooked on both sides, dip it in the sugar syrup for a minute and transfer to serving plate.
