My kid love Jangiri /Jilabi a lot.For him i tried,very first time it was Flop :( It was too oily. Not even in a proper shape.But he enjoyed :) .This time i want to give him a better Jangiri.. so,i checked so many "youtube" videos to get proper Shape & exact Jangiri.In one Video she used cake decorating pastry cone instead of any ziploc covers.Suddenly i thought let's try,i did,then the result was really really gud. You can use a Ziploc cover to get a  shape.

But,if u used Cake Pastry Cone...grind the batter very well.Because while squeezing some unground urad dal  might get struck ,in tip.I faced this problem.

For Jangiri :


  1. Urad dal- 1 cup
  2. Rice Flour-2 table spoon (Or) Raw- 2 table spoon
  3. Red food color-Some 
For Sugar Syrup:
  1. Sugar - 1 (Or) 1 and half cups
  2. Water- 2 and half cups
  3. Lemon juice- few drops
  • Soak urad dal in water for Minimum 1 hour.
  • If you adding rice,soak together.
  • After an hour drain all water,grind in Wet grinder adding very little water in a time.
  • If u using rice flour,just grind Urad dal alone,then mix the flour in the batter.
  • Once you done with the batter,take in to a wider bowl,add little "Red food color" mix well, in hand.
  • Beat well again.
  • Now the batter is in form.
  • Heat oil in wider pan,don't use kadai.
  • Transfer the batter in to Pastry Cone (Or) in Ziploc cover,directly squeeze in to the oil.
  • Don't try in hot oil,you wont get proper Jangiri.
  • Fry in medium heat.

  • Don't wait till all get more crisp.Little crisp is fine.
  • Once you fried,transfer in to paper towel.
  • After a min dip in to sugar syrup.Soak it for 2-3 mins,flip-flop it,then transfer in to bowl (Or) Plate.
Method for Sugar Syrup:
  • Mix water and sugar in a Wider Kadai,switch on the stove.
  • Bring to boil.
  • Make a half thread consistency.
  • Add few drops of lemon juice.
  • Switch off the stove.
  • Chilled Jangiri will be more Tastier. 
  •  Store in air tight container.Pour excess ,sugar syrup on Jangiri.
  • Let them soak for whole day then Enjoy.
