Winter is synonymous with a range of sweets, but if you look closely you may find a pattern. Most of these desserts are only enjoyed hot (for obvious reasons) and no amount of ghee is too much ghee. Nuts and dry fruits are welcome too, and the same goes for chashni. Kesari jalebi is a dessert that is consumed all year around, but there is something about winter that makes the dessert all the more special. Almost every shaadi you attend right now has a dedicated spot for crispy hot jalebis, being served with rabri. Every halwai shop is frying hot jalebis throughout the day too, and we are not complaining. If you too are a jalebi fan like us, you would definitely enjoy this easy recipe of kesari jalebi on NDTV Food.

Just place a plastic pouch over a glass, fill it with the batter. Pull the pouch outside of the glass. Take scissors and cut out a tiny opening from the other end.
