jalebee


This indian treat is a fermented wheat flour dough formed into round shapes, deep fried in ghee (clarified butter) then soaked in a sugary syrup. The syrup gives it the bright color. Jalebees are found at most indian sweet shops.

In Birmingham in England, where I was born, they sell jalebee in all the sweet centers. I often used to buy a big bag full. I didn't know what it was made from though, so thank you for explaining it.

They look a bit like orange pretzels. I wonder if they're hard to make.
