The clip begins with a street vendor packing an enormous-sized jalebi. Then, the video cuts to demonstrate its preparation. While the preparation of a regular jalebi and this sunflower jalebi is similar, the distinction lies in how the vendor shapes it in boiling hot oil. The process commences with the man placing the batter in a cloth. Subsequently, he starts creating the massive sunflower jalebi. The only difference in its shape is the criss-cross lines, which prevent it from breaking. Once completed, the man dips it in the sugar syrup. Voila! A lip-smacking jalebi is ready.

However, some viewers expressed health concerns, with one comment humorously noting, “69 missed calls from diabetes.”
