Jangris

When I was home and from the time I can remember, most of the time when my mom went out for shopping, paying the electric bill, visiting her family or anyother things, she always came back home with a small packet from the Bakkery.
And we three girls knew that she would always have something, like a Ladoo, Jalebi ( that is what we call this in Kerala at least what we call ) but it is normally called Jengiri.

Can you imagine kids beeing really happy now a days because their mom brought them goodies from the bakers.
Isn't it funny as kids we were so happy with these small things a least we kids were.
Now to makes kids happy one has to spend so much money.

The christmas is not yet there but we get now itself folders from the shops what ll new toys and games are there and they all cost so much.

Now to the recipe this is one of my favourite Indian sweet and from the time when I saw in Rak's Kitchen I have been wanting to make it, but then I am always so lazy to grin dal etc.... but then 2 weeks back priya was asking in FB what sweets to make for Diwali and I told her make this from Rak's place and the temptaion for me was too much, I went straight to te Kitchen soaked urid dal and in few hours was munching on these delcious sweet with a cup of tea.

I did exactly as Rak's did the only difference I did was, I made double the quantity of sugar syrup as I wanted the jengiri to be soaked really good.

Whole white urad dal 3/4 cup
Rice flour 1 tsp
Orange food colour
pinch Salt
Oil for frying


For Sugar syrup ( I doubled up the below quantity of the ingrients of the syrup, which is given below)
Sugar 3/4 cup
water
Just to immerse the sugar
Lemon juice 1/2 tsp
Rose essence 4 drops
Orange food colour

Soak urad dal for 2 hrs and grind with very little water .
The batter should be fluffy and smooth.
Mix a pinch of salt,food colour and rice flour and mix well.


Heat the sugar with water just to immerse it and after it starts boiling,let it boil for 3-4 minutes.Add lemon juice,food colour and lastly essence and mix well and switch off the stove.

Take a pastry bag cover and make a tiny hole.

Fill the pastry bag with the batter and first practice doing in a plate .

Then heat a broad,flat bottomed pan(keep the flame in low) with only little oil say 1 inch depth.
The oil should notget fully heated,when it starts forming small,small bubbles in the bottom,then draw jangris in the oil,repeat the same to make many.
Once the jangris gets cooked and becomes light,turn over and cook till crisp and then take out carefully and transfer to the sugar syrup.

Dunk the fried jangris in hot sugar syrup for 1-2 minutes and take out carefully and arrange it a plate. Wait for half hour before serving.
I have stp by step oics but tghe loader of my old camera canot be found so when i findh it i will post the making of the jangri.

So I saw the picture and instinctively thought "jelebis", I didn't know they were also called Jhangris. They look awesome, i like the tight spiral you managed to achieve. I saw these on Ria's blog too, and have been debating attempting them. yours has nudged me further in that direction. P.S. Are you from kerala?

Angie's Recipes said...

I don't know about the jangris...but it looks so pretty and delicious to me.

Bong Mom said...

I think it is more popular as jalebi than anything else. You make it sound easy HC

Cynthia said...

My mom's eldest sister and her family lived not far from us when we were growing up and whenever my uncle would go out on Saturday mornings, he always brought back jelabi. Love it!

Ivy for making this you have to use urid dal, but there is a another recipe for something similar which they use normal flour.

indianspicemagic said...

Yummy and delicious jalebi .

Indonesia Eats said...

At most Indian restaurants in Winnipeg, they call this Jalebi. I like it as slong as not too sweet. Some places make this perfect to my tastebuds. Thanks for the recipe.

Sireesha said...

WOW...Mouthwatering.I started carving for it...

Smitha said...

Jangiris look amazing and tempting!...Jalebi and Jangiri are a bit different from each other..Jangiri is the softer crunchy one and Jalebi is more crispy and crunchy....Atleast that what I made it out to be...

lissie said...

your post brings back nostalgic memories, Finla... my mother used to do the same and I still love jelabis!

Shobha said...

Samta said...

boosyThis looks beautiful - reminded me of home....... thanks for sharing the recipe

anubhavati said...

Finla,

You are killing me woman...I simply love jangiris. We differentiate the jangiris from the jalebis as these are a little sour.
YUMMY!!!

Soma said...

These look like the ones from the stores. exactly!! I am not too fond of these, too sweet for my taste. but DD1 and hubby can finish off a boxful at one go.

Ingitha said...

I just made the jilebis and it came out sooo very well.My son is a picky eater and jilebis are the only sweet from indian bakeries that he likes to eat. Thanks a lot for helping me to make these wonderful jalebis.As a variation I added a spoon of ghee to the sugar syrup & it gave a rich flavour.

Happy Cook / Finla said...

Ingitha thankyou for trying the recipe and happy to hear that you liked it and liove the idea of adding the ghee to the syrup.
