As Indians, we have grown up having mithai on every occasion. Whether you excelled in your studies, had a job promotion or just got engaged, no event is complete without several kinds of mithais decorated on our tables. And that’s not it; as kids, we have seen our mothers and grandmothers making sweets using the age-old recipes during Holi, Diwali and Eid. With so much love for Indian desserts, we can never get enough of the spongy rasgullas, the dense gulab jamuns or the delectable gajar ka halwa. But, even though we buy large quantities of these mithai ka dabbas, have you ever thought about having one big piece of your favourite sweet? If not, then think again!
In a recent post by foodie_incarnate, a food blogger on Instagram shared a video of a delicious looking large piece of jalebi that weighed 1 KG! Yes, you read that right. This jalebi wala, who has his shop in Indore’s Sarafa Bazar by the name of Jai bhole jalebi bhandar, is running his family legacy that opened in 1988! With an experience of making lip-smacking jalebis for the past 33 years, this huge 1Kg jalebi costs only 500 rupees.
In the three-minute IGTV video, you can see the jalebi wala dropping a huge batter in hot oil and frying jalebi that is almost the size of the kadhai. As the yummy sweet is being cooked, the food blogger says that “no food colour” is used. Once done, the jalebi was then dipped in a chashni and served with Kesar rabdi! Ever since the video was posted, it has garnered around 1.2 million views. Take a look:
