Imrati / Jangiri

Imrati / Jangiri is one of the popular Indian sweet. It is quite similar to Jalebi, only the difference is, Jalebi is made by Maida i.e. Rafined flour and Imrati is made by Urad dal i.e. black lentil. So, now we'll learn how to make Imrati.


Urad dal (black lentil) - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Saffron - 1/2 tsp
Red food color - 1/4 tsp
Oil for frying
Salt a pinch


1. Soak the urad dal for 8 hours. Grind it in a very smooth paste.
2. Add 1/2 cup of rice flour, salt and red color to it. Mix these all together.
3. In an another pan take 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup water. Let it simmer on the gas till it gets 1 thread constistncy. Add cardamom powder and saffron to it.
4. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
5. For making Imrati you can use any sauce bottle or piping bag. I used a plastic bag for it and made one small hole with the use of hot stick.

6. Take the urad dal mixture in this plastic bag and make Imrati in hot oil. At this time oil should not be too hot and it should be on medium flame.
7. Once the imrati is hard from one side, flip it on anothr side.
8. When the imrati is hard from both side, remove it from oil and soak it in the sugar syrup for 1-2 minutes.
9. After 1-2 minutes remove it. Imrati is ready to eat.
