When it comes to Indian desserts, we are truly spoilt for choice. From juicy and soft rasgullas to piping hot moong dal halwa - there are options galore. Sometimes, restaurants list out all of our favourite desserts, leaving us in a fix about what to pick. This is when we read the descriptions as a guide about which Indian sweet would satisfy our cravings the best. However, one such description of the popular sweet 'Jalebi' left internet users in splits. Take a look:
The tweet was shared by user Daisy Rockwell, known as @shreedaisy on Twitter. "Friends, @microMAF and I have just come across the ultimate description of jalebi," she wrote tagging her friend in the post. In the click, we could see a restaurant's menu from a South Asian city that seemed to be owned by people from Pakistan. The dessert section was listed with various sweets such as gulab jamun, firni, halwa and kulfi. Each of these had a one-line description below it. However, it was the description of jalebi that stole the show.
"Mysterious crispy pretzel shaped fried waffles soaked in a rose water syrup," read the description text below the dish 'Jalebi Garam'.
The hilarious way to explain jalebi indeed left internet users in splits. The tweet received over 749 likes and 83.3k views. A number of Indian foodies left their thoughts in the comments section. "What would be the desi descriptions of pretzels and waffles," wondered one. "The descriptions in general are vastly superior to the usual stuff on menus. I would like to eat there," said another one. A number of others shared similar funny descriptions of dishes that they encountered at various restaurants.
