    is it a sugarfree jalebi?


    Mr Rajiv don't you dip your jalebis in the syrup?

    Curd is 'yogurt' or in Indian language its 'Dahin'

    I do'nt know what is curd. I want to try this recipe. Please let me know what is curd? thanks


    I think this recipe is incomplete, since there is no mention of how to make the sugar syrup in which you are supposed to dip the Jalebi. I think you have to boil the mixture of water and sugar till it comes to a boil and then dip the fried Jalebi in this syrup which is kept warm.


    This recipe is not completed as theres no mention of the fried jilebis being dipped into the sugar syrup..could u be kind enuff to either complete it or take it off the site as it could be misleading to the ppl who r new to Indian cooking. thanx :)
