Well when B & J announced
that we got to show them Noodles, I was thinking well what can I do that might fall under this, then when I scrolled down, wow they had given lot of choice. Still the thoughts were hazy, then came Arundati with her Jhangiri recipe
, which sounded so simple I was really surprised. Was this really that Jhangiri that's sold in the stops and what we feel is something that can't be done at home. Well, for days I would visit her page and look at the picture thinking if I would really have the courage to do that, then decided nothing can be achieved being a chicken. Here comes my noodles,..sorry jhangiri.
I followed Arundati's recipe to the T with few changes, still few things were confusing for the first time. I didn't have yellow colour, so added turmeric. Then added Orange colour. Finally to give a tart taste, added Dry ginger aka sonti...ok ok..this is the life of a blogger. With given time we need to satisfy all our dear friends. Dry ginger is my addition, you don't have to blame Arundati for it. But believe me it gave it a great taste. Ok if you don't' believe me, you can ask Lathamma
later this week. Because I am taking these to her!
200 gms urad dal
1 tbspn rice
1 & 1/2 cup sugar
2 cup water
Oil for frying
Dry ginger - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric a pinch
Orange food colour
Method to prepare:
Soak Urad dal and rice for 30 mins. Infact let it soak for more time.
Drain water and run it in mixie. You need to add some water to get a consistency that's like butter. This probably needs about 15 mins of grinding.
Add sonti and colour and mix well. Cut an end of a plastic cover, the hole needs to be just a small one, depending on the size you want.
Heat oil and scoop the batter to the plastic cover and press the batter into hot oil as circles like a muruku.
Sim for a while so that it gets cooked on both sides.
Meanwhile, melt sugar in water by boiling it, remove dirt if any!. Let it be on sim.
Once the Jhangiri is cooked, duck it into the sugar syrup. Since this is jhangiri, you can let it be in sugar syrup for 10 mins. I was thinking this is jalebi and removed it soon.
Once its well coated, store it in air tight containers.
This goes to B&J's Click event.
Now, not sure which one looks more appealing. This time, I have some time to relax. So help me out on which one looks good. I can't be like her
calling it ugly, her dish looks beautiful to me, but these are my best shots! :D
Close shot..I can't get any closer, if I do then you will get to see only red colour.
Well this is by my daughter. She insisted her chunnies would give it air! So had to oblige her too.
Ok, now to the other business, since this has Sonti or rather I added it to be sent to Sunita, well she asked us to think of ginger
this month. I always obeyed my teachers, so can't do it different now.
And Hima asked me what my favorite Sweet was
, well this of course!
And since this is vegan, sending this to dear Suganya who is into vegan venture
this month. Can't disappoint our dear friends. So here comes Jhangiri for rescue!
Enjoy your weekends!
