Sweet Indian Pretzels (Jalebi)

What seems to be like funny-looking pretzels, is a very popular Indian dessert and snack. You may color the batter however you want, or you may not want to color it at all, but you’ll have to be patient as you let it rest overnight. After deep-frying the spirals, you soak them in lemony sugar syrup and serve garnished with pistachios. You won’t believe your palate.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
