So as it turns out I am having quite the difficult time trying to make jalebis. Have been told it is pretty tricky to pull off and unfortunately I'm having trouble with getting the shape I need.
Has anyone else here made them?
First I tried using a squeeze bottle with the batter (as advised) but there were far too many air pockets and the spirals pretty much broke apart as it hit the oil. Decided to try using a piping bag instead to eliminate the air pockets which did help, however, i am unable to pipe into a coil without the coils breaking apart as they are frying. I have tried piping the batter directly into the oil and have also tried piping into a submersed spider.
Fortunately they are super tasty and have a good consistency, however, they are not very pretty to look at.
Thanks so much for your help
