Homemade Jalebi Recipe | Best Homemade Jalebi in 30 Minutes

This homemade jalebi recipe is a very delicious sweet dish that can be prepared in minutes. There are 2 ways to make Jalebis. I have shown the easiest way to make these crispy yummy jalebis at home. The quickest way to make this jalebi is mostly used if anyone craves sweets or there some new guests arrive unknowingly. But, I always prefer the traditional method in which the batter is kept in the fermentation process for at least 8 hours.

This fermentation gives your jalebi ki recipe a unique taste which is the important part of this Indian sweet recipe. Apart from gulab jamun, jalebi is also one of the most popular sweet dishes in all over India. In almost every shop, and occasions, you will find jalebi with rabdi or gulab jamuns.

But, in West Bengal, you won’t find this jalebi instead, there are jalebis made up of mung bean, and yellow dal lentil. Unlike normal jalebis, mung beans and yellow dal jalebis are made very thick and are very soft. These jalebis are very popular in funfairs or marriage ceremonies.

In West Bengal marriages, jalebis and rasgullas are served. Rasgulla which is the primary sweet West Bengal is famous for. This homemade jalebi is very easy and can be made even by a beginner who has just started cooking and baking. Make sure that you eat these jalebis within 3 to 4 days so make them in small batches.

Recipe with detailed ingredients and steps are provided in the recipe card below. You can also print this recipe from the button provided in the recipe card.
