JANGRI

Jangri –A famous Indian sweet which look alike jelabi but they have different flavor and texture.Jangiri is made from urad dhal and jelabi is made from Maida flour. This crisp sweet is very famous in the southern states of India. How can we forget the sweet vendors on the street selling hot Jangris!!!!!My mom used to make using separate cloth stitched by our tailor. I got this Ziploc idea when I was goggling sometimes back. Since this was the first time I tried this, I was skeptical of how it would turn out. But it did very well. Easy to make one yet so tasty.


INGREDIENTS:

Urad dal – 1cup
Saffron color – 1pinch
Rice flour – 1tsp
Ziploc bag (for piping)

(For sugar syrup)
Sugar – 1cup
Water – 2cup
Lemon juice – 1/2tsp


Another view to tempt u:)

METHOD:

Soak urad dal for atleast 3 hours. Dissolve sugar in water and bring to boil.Now add 1tsp lemon juice into the syrup to avoid forming crystals.

Drain the water and grind dal into a fine paste in the blender by adding little water. The consistency should become like glue sticking.

Add little bit of rice flour and mix it for 3 –5 mins.Then add saffron color and mix it well. Now a take a Ziploc bag and turn it upside down and make a small hole in the center using a big safetypin or iron nail.

Put the colored mixture and into the ziploc bag and hold nozzle of the ziplog bag(as shown in the pic) just above the surface of the oil, and pipe it to make circles with the batter, starting from the centre and sealing the end in the last half round.. If the oil is too hot the shape wont come. Better practice in an empty plate and then pipe it in oil.

Make sure the temperature of oil is to be low while piping. Deep fry on a medium heat till crispy and golden on both sides. Turn frequently.

Drain the jangries and immerse in warm sugar syrup for a minute, and serve hot or cold.

Wow! You made that at home? You are so cool!! Good job! Had never heard of jagari. I knew jalebi and imarti - probably punjabi version. You are doing an awesome job, Dhivya!!

TBC said...

Never knew that there was a difference between jelabi and jhangri. Just assumed that they had different names in different parts!

Love the color!:)

Jangri looks simply fabulous, Dhivya! I still remember when we go to sweet shops in India, those jangri were put to display, delectable to the eyes. YOur homemade recipe made the process easy especially the ziploc idea. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
