    Steps

    1
    Done

    To make the delicious afghan jalebis, you need to first prepare the saffron water. For this, take 6-7 tablespoons of boiling water with ½ a teaspoon of pounded saffron and a pinch of sugar. Set it aside for later.

    For preparing the dough, take 6 tablespoons of warm water in a mixing bowl and add in 1 teaspoon of yeast and ½ a tablespoon of sugar. Stir it nicely and set it aside for about 15 minutes.

    Done

    Now, take ½ a cup (which is about 80 grams) of cornflour or Persian starch in a large bowl and add in 2/3 cup (200 grams) of yogurt and combine well using a spatula. Once the dough smoothens, add in 1 cup (150 grams) of plain flour and combine well. To this, add in the previously prepared yeast mixture and whisk it nicely. Add in more flour if required.

    Once it is lump-free, pour in the water gradually while whisking it continuously. Repeat until you get a semi-thick batter. Then, add in 1 tablespoon of pure honey and lastly 3 tablespoons of saffron water. Mix everything together until smooth. Cover and set it aside for about 40 minutes.

    5
    Done

    Lastly, you need to make the syrup. For this, add 1 ½ cups of water in a pot with 2 cups of sugar and 1 tablespoon of rose water. Bring the syrup to a boil. To this, add the remaining saffron water and 1 tablespoon of glucose syrup. Stir the syrup and continue boiling. Also, add in ½ of fresh lemon juice and then remove from the heat and set aside.

    6
    Done

    When your dough is ready, mix it again to adjust its consistency. Pour it carefully in a squeeze bottle and broaden the opening of the bottle to let the mixture flow out easily. You may also add in the back seeds if you like.

    Done

    Now, heat enough oil in a pan or Dutch oven and fry the jalebis as shown in the video. Once it is slightly golden, drop the jalebis into the previously prepared syrup. Then, strain the jalebis and then serve it hot.
