This sweet is called Jalebi . There's a chubbier version of this down South in our state called Jangiri which will be juicier, where as this is crisp!
This is nothing but flour made into a batter and squeezed into hot ghee through a hole in a cone made of cloth ,deep fried and soaked in sugar syrup.
This is a popular item sold in the Station at Katni on the way to Gaya. We bought this...served in a piece of the local newspaper:)) Yes...it was yummy..though the colour is a bit intimidating:)I dare not show this shot to my son as I might get a lecture on buying things served on newspaper bits, unhygienic, falling ill etc. etc. Well, me and my husband survived :)))))))))))))))Ah!! The immunity levels are high !
