Piping Hot Jalebis with Chilled Rabdi 👌
Jalebi, also known as Zulbia, is a sweet popular in countries of South Asia, West Asia, North Africa, and East Africa. It is made by deep-frying maida flour (plain flour or all - purpose flour) batter in pretzel or circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup. They are particularly popular in Iran and the Indian subcontinent. It can either be served warm or cold. They have a somewhat chewy texture with a crystallized sugary exterior coating. Citric acid or lime juice is sometimes added to the syrup, as well as rose water. Jalebi is eaten with Rabdi (as seen in the picture above) along with optional other flavours such as kewra - scented water.
Rabdi is a sweet, condensed - milk-based dish, originating from the Indian subcontinent, made by boiling the milk on low heat for a long time until it becomes dense and changes its color to pinkish. Sugar, Spices and Nuts are added to it to give it flavor. It is chilled and served as dessert. Rabdi is the main ingredient in several desserts, such as rasabali, chhena kheeri, and khira sagara.
