  2. Make sugar syrup with sugar, water, saffron and cardamom and keep on warm.
  3. Pour batter into squeeze cone and squeeze jalebi shape into hot oil. Fry till golden. Blot excess oil.

In your recipe for Jalebi, you have 1.5 cup of urad daal powder and 3/4 cup of maida. Does that mean 1-1/2 cups of urad daal powder which is more than the maida used in this recipe? Am I correct? Also the amount for curd/buttermilk does not seem to be enough to make the right consistency for the batter. Please reply at the above e-mail. Thanks.?

Although I have consumed too much sweet meat this week, the chosen ingredients with their right proportions used in this variation of Jalebis make this recipe sound very tempting.. .Hmmm..., can't wait to try it. Well... may be next week. Anyways, keep up the good work, dear Bashobi.
