Whole Wheat  Jalebi

I have recently joined a FB group Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge . It’s an interesting group where you will be paired with other fellow blogger. You both assign two ingredients for each other which other members in the group doesn’t know. Once you made the dish, others should try to identify the ingredients. How interesting is this ,right?


I’m paired with talented blogger Amritha Iyer of Foodsamaritan. She gave me two ingredients Besan ( chickpea flour) and Cardamom using which I have to make a Madhya Pradesh dish. As I was researching about the Madhya Pradesh Cuisine, I came to know that Poha and Jalebi is one of  the main combination they have. Jalebi is basically made by grounding Urad dal or using All purpose flour. But I bumped into this site to see how Jalebi is made with All purpose flour and Besan. I instantly jumped with joy as I haven’t tried Jalebi before and so excited to make.

How did I make it

Jalebi can be called as Indian version of Funnel Cakes we get in US. It is orange, swirl juicy sweet that will be made during special occasions. The original recipe used All purpose flour and besan but I used Whole Wheat flour instead of All purpose flour. Mix the flour and yogurt. Leave for 24 hrs for fermentation. Deep fry and coat in sugar syrup. The end result is crispy , juicy Whole Wheat Jalebi. Hope you will try this.
