Jangri Recipe with Video

Jangri Recipe
Jangri is a common South Indian sweet prepared with Urad dal. Jelabi is different from Jangri and prepared with Maida. Beautiful swirls and the colour of the Jangri is always inviting . This is one of the common sweet prepared in house holds during Diwali | Deepavali Festival. I have attached my you tube video below in the post which clearly shows piping of Jangri batter directly into oil. This post was in my draft for a long time. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian sweet Jangri.

  • Take a icing bag or zip lock cover. Carefully make a small hole (similar to mehandi cone) using scissors or hot nail. Fill half of the cover with the batter. Twist the cover on the top. Heat a flat bottomed pan with less oil (3 cm depth) in low flame.

  • When the oil is hot enough, start piping jangri batter directly in oil. Draw 2 circles followed by small swirls as shown below.

  • Allow the jangri to cook. Once cooked turn on other side and cook till they turn crisp. Transfer the hot jangri directly into sugar syrup using the steel rod ( used for turning paniyaram) or wooden  chop stick. Soak the jangri in sugar syrup for 1 minute and transfer it to a plate / tray.

Tips:
  • Use grinder for grinding Urad dal. Grinding in mixie will heat up the batter and batter won't have enough aeration. It took approximately 30-35 minutes to get fluffy batter.
  • If the batter is too watery add 1 tbsp of rice flour to get correct consistency.
  • Lemon juice is added to sugar syrup to avoid crystallization of sugar.
  • Practice piping jangri in a plate before directly piping in hot oil.
  • Flat bottomed vessel is suggested for cooking Jangri. Cook Jangri in low flame.
  • Oil should not be too hot. Allow the oil to heat till you see the bubbles. 
  • My aunt uses a special cloth stitched for piping Jangri. But the icing bag worked perfect for me.
