Kesari Jalebi is a popular Indian sweet dish that is known for its crispy, syrupy texture and delightful taste. It is often served during festivals, celebrations, or as a dessert. Making Kesari Jalebi requires a few key ingredients and a simple process. In this recipe, I will guide you through the steps to prepare Kesari Jalebi at home.

Here’s a simple recipe to make kache kele ki tikki at home:


  • For the batter:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 2 tablespoons fine semolina (sooji)
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt
  • A pinch of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • A few strands of saffron (kesar)
  • Oil or ghee for frying

For the sugar syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • A few drops of lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, fine semolina, yogurt, baking powder, and a pinch of saffron. Mix well.
  • Gradually add warm water to the dry ingredients and mix to form a smooth batter. The consistency of the batter should be similar to that of a pancake batter. Add a few more drops of water if necessary. Cover the batter and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • While the batter is resting, prepare the sugar syrup. In a saucepan, add sugar and water. Place it over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves completely. Then, add a few drops of lemon juice to prevent crystallization. Cook the syrup for a few more minutes until it reaches a sticky consistency. Finally, add cardamom powder and turn off the heat. Keep the syrup warm.
  • After 30 minutes, check the batter consistency. It should be smooth and flowing. If it is too thick, add a little water and mix well. Transfer the batter to a squeeze bottle or a piping bag with a small round tip. This will make it easier to make the jalebis.
  • Heat oil or ghee in a deep frying pan over medium heat. To test if the oil is ready, drop a small portion of the batter into the oil. If it rises to the surface immediately, the oil is hot enough for frying.
  • Squeeze the batter in a circular motion into the hot oil to form spiral shapes. Start from the center and work your way outwards. You can make jalebis of any size, but keep in mind that they will puff up slightly when fried.
  • Fry the jalebis until they turn golden brown and crispy. Flip them occasionally to ensure even cooking. Once done, remove the jalebis from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain excess oil.
  • Immediately dip the fried jalebis into the warm sugar syrup. Coat them well with the syrup and let them soak for a minute or two. Gently shake off any excess syrup.
  • Repeat the frying and dipping process with the remaining batter until all the jalebis are prepared.
  • Kesari Jalebis are best enjoyed when they are warm and fresh. You can serve them as is or garnish them with chopped pistachios or almonds for added flavor and presentation.

With these simple steps, you can make delicious Kesari Jalebis at home. They are a delightful treat that will surely impress your family and friends. Enjoy the crispy, syrupy goodness of this traditional Indian sweet!
