  • 1. Authentic jalebi preparation, batter needs to be fermented for atleast 24 hours. In that case yeast can be replaced with 3/4 cup thick yogurt and 1/4 cup baking soda.
  • 2. Batter consistency should always be thick and sticky like medu Vada. Else it can be scattered in oil while frying.
  • 3. While frying , oil should not be fume and very hot...
