Heat 2 tablespoons of ghee and roast the cashews and raisins for 2 minutes. Take the cashews and raisins out. Add the remaining ghee, and roast the semolina for 5 minutes. Let it cool. In a pot, boil the water. Add the semolina in rainy movement, until it is dissolved and cooked . Add the sugar and cardamom, and cook it for 3 minutes. Once the semolina is cooked, add the saffron water. Stir it, and add the cashew and raisins. Mix it well, and place it on ramekins. Let it cool and ENJOY!


1/2 cup of flour
2 tablespoons of yogurt
70-75 ml of water

Food color (yellow and orange)

Mix all the ingredients and set aside for 15-20 minutes.

2 cups of sugar

Bring all the ingredients to boil until the sugar is dissolved.

Place the jalebi batter in a plastic bag. Fry them in hot oil (if the oil is not hot, then the jalebis will not puff). Once they are fried, put them immediately in the syrup. ENJOY!
