Recipe by Rani Jha Of Ghar Ka Khana
Sweet Potato Jalebi
I wanted to make Sweet potato gulab jamun ever since vani Sinha posted it in thali cook off...... but not with khoya as her recipe. Because I find it too much time consuming to make khoya at home but lazy souls also do want to eat fancy things so I did some tricks and tried ...the result was jalebi not gulab jamun !!!!.
What I took ....
half sweet potato steamed for 20 min ( fully cooked to mash easily )
3 serving spoon milk powder
1 serving spoon all purpose floor
1/2 serving spoon corn flour ..
oil to deep fry the jalebi
for sugar syrup
1 cup sugar and 1 cup water .
How I made it ...
peeled the sweetpotato mashed it with hand and started adding the milk powder ... and since I kept the steamed potato in freeze so the mixture became watery . ; and then I added APF and cornflour and mixed well..... it reached the consistency of pakori batter ..... **at this stage I dropped the idea of making gulab jamun out of this mixture and started thinking to use this batter in other form***
The mixture was rich , thick , and creamy ...... so I put the mixture in piping bag with the thick nozzle attached and started making jalebi in hot oil .... they puffed beautifully and even appeared as khoya jalebi - smile on my face ...
and then I put these jalebi in sugar syrup that i made side by side.... just added sugar and water to boil until the 1 string consistency . kept the jalebi for 1/2 min in syrup and they soaked good amount of sweetness......
The beautifull colored jalebi was ready....
** This jalebi was crunchy as juicy exactly like other normal jalebis
