BM #14 Day 5
Two years back I had been to a fair ,where some young boys had a food stall which served Apple Jalebi.These jalebis were like donuts but immersed in a fragrant saffron syrup.What a wonderful twist to the traditional jalebi ! Ever since have been wanting to make these but sometimes bookmarked recipes lie in those folders only.The recipe that I got was with just simple maida which seemed more like a apple fritter.So I decided to use the Jalebi dough recipe which we had done for The Indian Cooking Challenge.This was a hit recipe and I knew I would not go wrong. Normally to make it a complete dessert I would serve jalebi with rabdi…but this time I decided on Kheer and let me tell you it turned out absolutely yum..the winey flavor of green apple with the tartiness of jalebi ….. the immense aroma of saffron and ghee…..and then the condensed rice kheer you got to try this one to tickle your taste buds.
12............ green Apple rings
For the jalebi dough
How to proceed
Dip the apple rings in water with a few drops of lemon to avoid the discoloration.
Dip the apple rings into the jalebi batter and deep fry till crisp.
Make sure the apple rings are well coated with the batter.
Immerse in the sugar syrup for a minute or two.
Garnish with saffron ,pistachios and almonds.
½ cup ........rice
¼ can........ condesed milk
¼ tsp......... cardamon pwd
Boil the rice till soft.
Add milk and boil till reduced to half.
Add condensed milk and cardamon pwd.
Cook till you reach a semi soft consistency.
Chill and granish.
You must keep in mind that the kheer on cooling becomes thick.
