Crispy, coiled and oh-so-delicious, jalebi is stable across all halwais and sweetmeat shops in India and is one of our favourite mithais too. When we think of crisp, orange jalebis, a plenty of childhood memories rewind through our minds. How we all used to enjoy having jalebis on festivals like Diwali, Bhai Dooj, Rakshabandhan with our siblings, cousins and family. I vividly remember how my sister and I used to eagerly wait for our dad to bring a packet full of piping hot jalebis on special occasions. Those days, we used to swear by the jalebis that our local halwais used to prepare; however, with an increase in demand for mithais, most of the sweetmeats that we eat now may lack in taste and quality.
