Jalebi is an Indian and Arabic sweet snack popular across South Asia and the Middle East. It is made by deep-frying maida flour batter in circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup. This dessert can be served warm or cold. They have a somewhat chewy texture with a crystallized sugary exterior coating. Lemon juice is sometimes added to the syrup, as well as rose water. Jalebi is eaten with curd or rabri and kewra.
