instant jalebi recipe | quick jalebi | homemade instant jalebi | instant jalebi without eno are so quick to make that you would never have thought that jalebis can be made so easily! Learn how to make homemade instant jalebi.

Born in the North only to become famous all over India, the homemade instant jalebi has a somewhat chewy texture with a crystallized, semi-fermented, sugary exterior coating, which contributes to the unique flavour of this dish.

The USP of these quick jalebi is there is no need to ferment the batter. Moreover, they are not made with eno or fruit salt. It’s the curd used in this recipe that works its magic.

While making these homemade instant jalebi, remember to keep the syrup warm. Keep stirring the sugar syrup continuously till you reach 1 thread consistency. Do not over cook the sugar syrup. Also ensure that you immerse the jalebi in warm syrup immediately after frying so they soak the sugar syrup well. Do not over soak them. 2 to 3 minutes is enough.

Can I fry these jalebi in the morning and soak them in sugar syrup in night before serving
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    No, the jalebis will have to be added in the sugar syrup immediately for the syrup to coat well. You can drain from the syrup and keep and serve after some time.

Can i use baking soda instead of baking powder?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Sanchita, No, you should''nt. Baking soda is 3 times more powerful than baking powder. It might affect the texture of your jalebis.
