Everyone knows what jalebi is. Those crispy fried spirals in sugar syrup are very common, not only in India but all over South Asia and parts of the Middle East. However, this is a twist to the classic jalebi. You probably haven’t heard of this because this gem is well hidden in the Midnapore district of West Bengal. That’s where the chef learned how to make it. Muger jalebi is made with moong dal (a good source of protein and a healthier alternative for Maida), cardamom, sugar syrup, and ghee. These are softer than the regular jalebis, crisp but not hard. The spiral is also thicker.
