MT, Jhangiris looks sooooooooo delicious I can have them all. Been long since I had one :(. May be I will try at home after diwali. Thnx.

Priya Bhaskaran said...

MT, Jalabes looks gorgeous:)
Two quick questions.. can I make with Urad flour and rice flour?
" Take a bowl of water and put this mixture in water. (It will float.)" is it ok to put the mixture in water and deep fry in oil-- my doubt is if it has water while frying--- usually the oil with burn out, I am always sacred about urad dal frying in oil--do let me know-- I might do this for diwali--btw thanks for sharing:) I have bookmarked it:)

Priya said...

WOW ...they look soo juicy...I have been missing this sweet since I came here. You have loads of patience to try these out MT, I always get scared to try them out thinking they are complicated. I would lve to make them for Deepavali, and like Priya has asked can I use urad dal and rice flour instead..??
Thank you sooo much for the posting the recipe and encouraging us all to try them :-)

Its getting festive on the blogs. Difficult to stay off sweets from now on.i have never these kind of sweets, always sticking to the puddings and payasams, as i am scared of not getting these right.

Hi Pavani,
One more time I am going to make for diwali. Thanks. Wish you the same.

Hi Jayashree,
Yes, you can have everything. Please try and let me know the outcome of it.

Hi Priya, Priya
For your info, with readymade flour it will never come nice.
If it floats in water, then the consistency of grinded batter is correct.
While making jangiris, jangiri cloth will absorb the excess water.

Si Shaheen,
It is a typical south Indian snack. If time permits please try some of the sweets. I think I will gain more weight after festive season.

I tried jangiri.. it came out well.. but it was a bit hard.. donno the reason. can u tell me what might be the reason? i want to try it again.. thanks and regards.- Mythili

Menu Today said...


If your batter is too hard it will turn out hard or if u over fried then it will become hard and crispy.
Try to add 1 tsp of ghee to the batter to get soft and juicy jangiri.
Thanks for trying out my version.
