  • 200 gms Urad dal
  • 1 tbsp Rice
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • Cooking Oil for deep frying, you can use ghee as well.
  • Orange Food Colour or use Turmeric powder


  • Wash and soak the urad dal, rice for 30 mins.
  • Drain and grind the soaked urad dal and rice without water to make a smooth batter. This step is difficuit as you will have to grind without adding water and ensuring your mixer doesn't get over heated.
  • You will know the batter is done, when you float the ground batter in a bowl of water, and the batter floats. This you can test using a small ball. Continue grinding with the rest of the batter to get a soft texture. Transfer the batter to a bowl, add the food colour and mix well.
  • Heat a pan and add the water and sugar. When the water boils over, remove the scum if any, and continue cooking to get a thick syrup. set it aside.
  • In a thick bottomed pan heat about 2 cups of cooking oil, you can use ghee as well.
  • Make a cone using a plastic bag / Ziploc, spoon in enough.
  • Cut off one end to make a small hole. Press the batter into the hot oil/ghee (like murukku or jalebi) like spirals, if you can take the heat of the hot oil/ghee, you can make the typical jhangiri like curls.
  • Fry till crisp on both sides, remove from the oil/ghee, drain a bit, dunk it in the sugar syrup for about 15 minutes.
  • When all is done, remove from the syrup and store in a container.
