Jalebi is a traditional, popular sweet in countries of the Indian Subcontinent such as India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh. It’s made by deep-frying batter in a kind of pretzel shape and then soaked in syrup.
In India, jalebi is served as a celebration sweet, and has become a hot favourite on any special occasion be it a birthday, wedding or festival. Jalebis, though mostly eaten by themselves, can also be topped with warm milk flavored in cardamom powder, as pictured above.
Though it may be an acquired taste, there is no doubt, jalebis are a hit among all Indians.
