Generally, it takes few hours for the fermentation of the Jalebi batter. However here yeast is used to ferment the Jalebi batter quickly and so it does not require to be left for a day to ferment.

jalebiTip: You should immediately start frying the Jalebis once the batter has rested for 10 minutes. If the batter is left for a longer period, it ferments and the jalebis lose shape. Also remember to soak the Jalebis in warm sugar syrup immediately after frying them.

For the Jalebi batter
1 cup plain flour (maida)
1tsp Besan (Bengal gram flour)
½ tsp fresh yeast, crumbled

1tbsp melted ghee
1tsp sugar
2 to 3 drops of lemon yellow food colour

2cups of sugar
a few saffron (kesar) strands

¼ tsp lemon juice

Massage hair with warm coconut oil an hour before washing. Take some petals of hibiscus and grind it in the mixer. Apply this paste to your hair and then rinse it. For better result you can boil a few hibiscus flowers in coconut oil. Filter this oil and use it to control hair loss and thinning, you can also use Jaborandi oil which is again an extract of hibiscus flower.
