Hadn't used lemon wedge earlier in the syrup. It sure doesn't allow it to harden.smiley Improvisation to my existing recipe.

Didn't know it was so easy to make jalebis. Thanks for your techniques! 

Jalebi Recipe:

Ingredients
  • Citric acid (1/2 tsp)
  • Baking powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Water for making batter (1 cup)
  • Sugar (1 cup)
  • Split black gram flour (urad dal) (1/2 cup)
  • Refined flour (maida) (1 cup)
  • Water for syrup (1/2 cup)
  • Lemon wedge (1)
  • Saffron (kesar food colouring) (1/2 tsp)
  • Fortune Soya Bean Oil for deep frying
Method
  • Bring sugar and 1 cup water to a boil. 
  • Technique in focus #1: Add saffron and a lemon wedge. This results in a clear sugar syrup which does not crystallize. 
  • Boil for a few minutes then check for string consistency by tapping the syrup between your fingers.
  • Mix together urad dal flour, baking powder and citric acid together.
  • Add 1 cup water, little at a time.
  • Technique in focus #2: Whisk for 8–10 mins for airy consistency. 
  • Heat Fortune Soyabean Oil in a flat-bottomed pan. The oil should be one-inch-deep and the moderately hot.
  • Practice making jalebis with a ketchup bottle or a zip-lock pouch on a dish for the right pressure. 
  • Now make jalebis in hot oil with the same bottle.
  • Fry them till golden brown.
  • Technique in focus #3: Dunk jalebis in sugar syrup immediately. Let them soak for at least 2 mins.
  • Your delicious and juicy jalebis are ready to be served! Accompany them with cool rabri for a heavenly experience.
