As a child Jalebis always excited me, Crispy and sweet and a combination of Jalebis with fafda or Rabri is just beyond amazing.
The Jalebis have been the most trending ones during this Quarantine time. I was also tempted to make them and didn’t want to be left behind. Tried a few recipes but couldn’t get it right. But finally I got it.
Happened to try this recipe posted on YouTube Cookingshooking channel …if you need a video for reference.
