Jangiri is a popular indian dessert, dindigul is very famous for Jangiri in Tamil Nadu. Whenever I go to by hubby's home town, we stop at dindigul specially for this Jangiri, made hot in the evenings. This is my long term goal to make good jangiris and here I give the recipe for one such good attempt. 



Urad dal - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Corn starch - 1/2 cup
Food colour - a pinch (optional)
Salt - a pinch
Baking soda - a pinch
Sugar - 1 and 1/2 cup
Oil - to deep fry
Rose essence - 1/4 tsp

Cooking steps

  1. Soak urad dal in water for 1 hour and keep aside
  2. In a wide bottomed pan, Add sugar and add 1/2 cup of water to it and boil it till one string consistency is reached.
  3. Add rose essence and turn off the stove and keep aside.
  4. Grind urad dal by adding water very little by little and the batter should not be in running consistency.
  5. Keep the urad dal batter in a bowl and add rice flour, food colour and corn starch and prepare the batter.
  6. Add a pinch of salt and baking soda also.
  7. Mix well and keep the batter little fluffy
  8. Fill the squeeze bottle with the batter to make the Jangiri
  9. In a wide bottomed tawa, Add oil upto 1/2 inch height of the tawa and let it be hot
  10. Pour the batter from the squeeze bottle into the hot oil and make the small flower like jangiris
  11. To ensure the jangiri is fried well, touch the jangiri with the fork and if its crispy, then take them out and drain the excess oil in a tissue paper and put the jangiri in sugar syrup(approximately 10 mins) and take the jangiri out and keep it in air tight container to maintain its cr

My 2 cents
  • Keep the sugar syrup little warm till the end of the process. Otherwise it will caramalize.
  • If its getting caramalized, add little hot water and boil again to maintain the consistency.
  • Use hand whisk or fork to beat the batter to keep it little fluffy
  • Keep oil in medium to high flame till you complete making jangiris
