I am so lucky to have got to learn these today on TV on Mirch Masala. These are wonderfully tasty, easy to make and absolutely, "TO DIE FOR"! You might think that making jalebis is horribly messy, no! Try this recipe. It works so well! I watched it on TV in the morning and in honour of Mirj Mom's b'day, I made these this afternoon to serve as an after dinner treat! I know quite a bunch of jalebi lovers exist in the world, but I'd love to find one who loves them more than my dad. My dad becomes the happiest man on the planet when served jalebis. He's spent quite a fortune on buying these from outside, NO MORE! Now on, his daughter will be making these for him:) Try these and enjoy is all I can say!
