Jalebi an Indian sweet made of a coil of batter fried and steeped in syrup.
We never made this at home, probably because my mother is a doctor and this really dessert/ snack is fried in oil and sweet covered with more sweetness. But on trips back to Chandigarh, I can always remember heading to the street vendors in Sector 23 to eat this hot, delicious snack or dessert with my father. It brings back memories of my childhood going home and visiting my family in Punjab.
It’s best eaten just freshly made when the jalebi is cooked but soft and still warm with the syrup oozing when you bite it.
