Imarti also known as Jaangiri is a dessert belonging to Rajasthan. It is made with a urad dal (bengal gram) batter in a circular shape, deep fried and finally dipped in sugar syrup.

Ingredients of Imarti

  • 2 cups dhuli urad dal (husked Bengal Gram) - soaked in water overnight
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Saffron color
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom ground
  • 500 gm ghee to fry

How to Make Imarti

  1. Wash, drain and grind the daal with minimum water (should be thick). Mix in the colour.
  2. Beat daal well till fluffy, a drop dropped in water should float.
  3. Keep aside to ferment for 3-4 hours in Summer, more in Winter.
  4. Dissolve sugar in the water over low heat, stirring continuously till sugar is dissolved (do not let it come to a boil before that).
  5. Cook till one thread consistency (a drop pressed between fingers and pulled apart, should form a thin thread).
  6. Add cardamom powder. Pipe the batter with a nozzle or cloth with a hole, to form imartis straight into the hot ghee.
  7. Lower flame and allow to crisp turning once.
  8. Remove from ghee, drop into the hot syrup for 3-4 minutes, drain and serve.
