For Jalebis
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons corn flour
1⁄2 cup plain yogurt
1⁄2cup water
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

To Fry
500ml oil

For Syrup
one cup of water
2/3 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon saffron or turmeric


Put flours in a mixing bowl, add the yogurt and water and mix well, making sure there are no lumps in the batter - add the baking powder and stir again.

Pour the batter into an old ketchup or mayonnaise squeeze bottle.
Heat up the oil in a frying pan, and once it is hot drop in the batter by squeezing the bottle onto the hot oil, in concentric circular motion to make the Jalebis. (a thin, tight spiral)

Fry until golden, scoop out and drain on kitchen paper.
Repeat until you have used up the batter.

Make the syrup by heating up the water and the sugar, add the turmeric. Cook the syrup to a spoon coating consistency.

Dip the Jalebis in the syrup one by one so they are well coated.
Serve warm!
