INSTANT JALEBI RECIPE WITHOUT YEAST - CRISPY CRUNCHY JUICY JALEBI

INSTANT JALEBI WITHOUT YEAST 

Jalebi is a very popular Indian sweet and it makes  special occasions more delectable. This festive dessert is loved by both kids and adults equally because of its taste and texture. You can make jalebis in different ways. Some recipe needs a day for fermentation while some recipe calls for yeast or eno salt. Fermentation makes the batter slightly sour. Here am sharing the recipe for Instant jalebi without  yeast. For the sour taste, i added curd. So it is very easy to whip up this dessert.. I took only 15 minutes to make this crispy juicy piping hot jalebis. I truely enjoyed making this melt in mouth Indian sweet at home.

INGREDIENTS (1 cup = 250 ml)

All purpose flour / maida - 1 cup 
Cornflour  - 3 tsp
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Less sour curd/ yoghurt - quarter a cup
Yellow food color  - quarter tsp
Water -   half a cup + 3 tbsp
Oil  - for deep frying
Ghee - 1 tsp, optional

SUGAR SYRUP

Sugar   - 2 cups
Water  - 1.5 cups
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Crushed cardamom - 2 nos


PREPARATION

Here is the video showing how to make Instant jalebi at home easily. 



  • In a mixing bowl, Sieve together All purpose flour, cornflour and baking powder. Mix well.
  • Combine curd and food color in another bowl. Add this curd mixture to the flour mixture and mix . 
  • Then add water little by little and make a smooth batter without any lumps. Do not pour the whole water at a time.
  • The jalebi batter must not be too thick nor too thin. So add water accordingly.
  • Pour the prepared jalebi batter into a squeeze bottle. You can also pipe the jalebis using a piping bag. Here i used a sauce bottle or squeeze bottle for making jalebi. Set aside.
  • Now prepare the sugar syrup. For that, heat sugar and water in a pan and stir so that sugar dissolves. Once the syrup starts to boil, simmer it for 5 minutes. For jalebi, we need half string consistency. That means, the consistency of sugar syrup in between sticky and one string.  So switch off the flame before one string consistency. Set aside and then add lemon juice and crushed cardamom to it. Mix well. 
  • Heat a pan with oil for deep frying over a medium low flame. Once hot, add a teaspoon of ghee (this is optional only). You can squeeze a drop of this batter to the hot oil to check the right temperature. 
  • Now start making swirls using squeeze bottle. You can check my detailed VIDEO given above for more details. 
  • Fry the jalebis over medium flame. Flip the jalebi when one side is done. Do not over fry.
  • When done, transfer the jalebis to a slotted spatula for draining the excess oil and immediately dip the hot jalebis  in sugar syrup for just 30 seconds. Transfer it to a plate. 
  • Repeat the same with remaining batter. 
  • So the piping hot crispy juicy jalebis are ready to serve. 
  • You can serve this warm or chilled. You can also keep the leftover jalebis for later use  in refrigerator.

Dates       - 8 nos, seedless, finely chopped
Biscuit   - 4 nos, crush gently with hand, can use any biscuit
Butter     - 1 tsp, unsalted
Nuts  - 2 tbsp, chopped, optional
Chinagrass - 4 gms, do not add more
Milk    - 2 cups

Sugar  - 3 tbsp, can skip this for less sweet
Butterscotch sauce - 3 tbsp, for decoration


PREPARATION

Please watch this below video showing how to make this pudding



  • Make the dates crumble first and set this aside. For that, heat a pan with 1 tsp of butter and make the flame to medium-low. Then add the finely chopped dates to it and saute for a while. Do not let them mushy. Then add the crumbled biscuits (crumble with hand only, few big crumbs are fine). Saute over a low flame until the biscuits are well coated with the dates. When done, transfer this dates crumble to a plate (you can add nuts now) and set this aside ready.
  • Now let's make the china grass mixture. For that, melt the chinagrass in half a cup of water until it melts to a clear liquid. When done, set this aside until we prepare the milk mixture but u must stir it occasionally or else it will set once cooled.
  • Now make the milk mixture. For that, heat a pan with a cup of milk. Once it starts to boil, add the sweetened condensed milk. Do not forget to stir the melted chinagrass. Mix the milk mixture well to combine. You can add sugar now (as this pudding is so sweet because of dates, biscuits and the butterscotch sauce you can skip adding sugar. But exceptional for sweet tooth guys). Mix and let it boil very well. Then add the melted chinagrass and stir very well for a minute. Then switch off the flame. 
  • Pour this milk mixture through a strainer into a bowl. Let it cool for 5 minutes (do not keep it for more), so that it will be easy for making layers. Now let us assemble the pudding.
  • Here i took two mini silicon molds. Or you can assemble this pudding in a pudding tray.
  • Pour some milk mixture into the silicon molds as the base for this pudding. Then layer the crumbled dates and nuts over it. Again pour the milk mixture to cover this crumble coat. Again layer some dates crumble. 
  • Let it keep refrigerated for 5 hours or over overnight to set.
  • Once done, invert this pudding to a plate gently (de-mold it). Garnish with the Butterscotch sauce and serve chilled.

NO COOK 2 INGREDIENT MARZIPAN RECIPE - YUMMY SWEET

2 Ingredient Homemade Marzipan 

Homemade Marzipan is really worth trying than going to pre-made or store bought. Marzipan is used to frost cakes and all sort of goodies. As it tastes better than a fondant and helps to keep the cake moist, i prefer marzipan than a fondant for cakes. And it has a long shelf life of about 3 months when stored in the freezer. Here am going to make a sweet with this Homemade marzipan. This is a Christmas special sweet. Moreover, this marzipan is eggless, no-cook and vegan.  It is delicious and much easier to make. Just with two ingredients you can make this yummy treat for your kids and family. Powdered cashews can also be substituted with powdered Almonds. If so, you have to soak the almonds, peel and dry it completely and then powder it. You can shape this homemade marzipan into your favourite figures including fruits and vegetables. So let's move on to the recipe showing how to make Marzipan with two ingredients/ 2 ingredients marzipan/ Christmas sweets/ quick sweet recipes/ yummy sweets/ powdered cashew recipes.

INGREDIENTS (1 cup = 250 ml)

Cashew nut     - 1 cup, fresh and unsalted
Icing sugar      - 1 cup
Sugar solution - 5 tsp (dissolve 2 tbsp of sugar in quarter a cup of warm water)

For color
Rose milk essence   - 2 drops
Pista essence     - 2 drops


PREPARATION

Please check below video showing how to make Homemade Marzipan 

  • Grind the cashews to a fine powder. But be careful, you must grind it in intervals else cashews will release its natural oil. Then sieve it well.
  • To this add the icing sugar (after sieving).
  • Now let's make a dough using sugar solution, add it little by little. I added 5 tsp of sugar solution only, so add accordingly. 
  • Knead it very well and form a soft dough.
  • Divide the dough into two portions. Make a hole in the centre and add food colour of your choice ( i added rose milk essence and pista essence). Again knead them separately. You can see the natural oil present in cashews is oozing out. Don't worry, it will dry up later.
  • When done, make small balls out of this dough and shape it using a silicon mould. (instead, you can roll this dough out and cut into desired shapes).
  • Keep them on the parchment paper once done and let it set aside to dry completely (preferably overnight or at least 8 hours). So the two ingredient Marzipan is ready to use. The shelf life of this sweet is 1 week when stored in an airtight container.
