Jangri has some defined shape while jalebi is just swirls. To get jangri right, jangri batter is very important. Step 1

Making Jangri batter Soak urad dal and small quantity of rice together for few hours and grind to paste by using small quantity of water. But nowadays we use wet grinder or mixer grinder to make the batter. If water quantity is more, we won’t get perfect batter. To make things easier, i soak only urad dal and grind it in either wet grinder or mixer grinder. In the dal batter i add corn flour or rice flour to make the batter for jangri.

Step 2

Making sugar syrup Sugar syrup consistency: One string consistency is sufficient for jangri. Or otherwise it will not absorb the sugar syrup. Note: We should use more sugar syrup for dipping fried jangri and remove in 2-3 minutes from syrup. So always left over sugar syrup will be there. We can use this for preparing other sweets like Badhusha, boondi laddu, shakarpara etc
