Jalebi

The jalebis in Jodhpur have got to be the most delicious jalebis around. They are thinner and crispier than jalebis everywhere else.

We just posted a recipe for some delicious Malpua recently and the same halwai that shared that recipe with us also told us how he makes his absolutely amazing jalebis. 

The jalebis in Jodhpur have got to be the most delicious jalebis around. They are thinner and crispier than jalebis everywhere else and they’re also richer, more elegant tasting. There are subtle flavors, all of them subtly rounded out by the wonderful ghee these funnel cakes are fried in.

One of the most wonderful things that Jodhpuris do with jalebis is dunk them in hot milk on cold winter mornings and evenings. It is an absolute delight. With or without milk, try this recipe out.

I am a Christian married to an Iyer and apart from our different backgrounds, just in terms of food culture, we had our work cut out for us. But somehow, these differences combined in beautiful ways to make our union a runaway success.

10 Minute Kerala Style Vegetable Stew

After a week of revelry and eating out, we were in need of a home cooked meal. And while we wanted it to be light, we still needed it to be flavourful and fulfilling. And when the idea of a Kerala Vegetable Stew sprang into our minds, it seemed just perfect.
