Apple Jalebi | Sweet Recipe

Apple Jalebi, a quick and easy to make sweet recipe with apples. I had seen this recipe long back on manjula's kitchen, even since i wondered how would it taste and also wanted to give a try. At last, a year back i tried this sweet for the first time and we really enjoyed it. The sourness from the apple while eating this jalebi exactly reminded me about the slight sourness from the traditional jalebi(do check out the traditional jalebi recipe also, one of the popular post in my blog and turned out so good each time.), guess that's why they named this dish as "Apple Jalebi". If you're looking for some indian flavored sweet recipe with apples, then do give it a try, you won't be disappointed for sure. This jalebi becomes little bit soggy when it's cooled down, so I recommend to fry as many apple slices as you want at a time and refrigerate the remaining(apples, batter and sugar syrup). Fry them whenever needed,slightly reheat the syrup and then dip the apples in it, that's give you crispy and tasty Apple jalebis every time!!! Now let's check out the recipe for this yummy Apple Jalebis.

Procedure
Take all the required ingredients, in a bowl, add the maida & yeast, mix it well.Then add the sugar and salt, mix it well and then pour the needed water to make the batter.The batter should be free flowing but not too thin. Cover it with lid and let it rest for 30 mins.In the mean time, let's make the sugar syrup, heat the pan with water and sugar, add few strands of saffron.Let it comes to boil, reduce the flame and cook till the syrup becomes sticky. Switch off the flame. If you're using food color, add it now and then add the lemon juice. Mix it well and your sugar syrup is ready.Next, peel the apple and cut them into thin circles, remove the seeds from the centre and keep it ready.After 30 mins, the batter should be all bubbly and became thick.Heat the oil in the pan for frying.Deep the apple slice into the batter and coat them on both sides well.Gently drop them into oil and cook on both side till it becomes golden in color. Drain from the oil and add it into the sugar syrup, let it soak for 2 mins and then remove from the syrup and arrange it on the plate.Tasty Apple Jalebi is ready.
Notes:

  • Sugar syrup should be warm while adding the fried apples, it helps to absorb the syrup easily.
  • If the sugar syrup becomes cold & not absorbed by apples well in between then slightly warm them.
  • Instead of saffron flavor, you can cardamom flavor too.
