Serves – 4 Cooking time – 15 minutes Preparation time – 45 minutes
Ingredients Urad Dal – 2 cups Cornflour – 1/2 cup Sugar – 3 cups Red Colouring Agent – 1 to 2 drops Rice Flour – 1/2 cup Cardamom – 1 to 2 Pipping bag
Procedure Soak the ural dal for about 4 to 5 hours. After the mentioned time, drain the water and grind the ural dal to make it into a smooth paste. When you grind the mixture, add only half a cup of water. Meanwhile, take a pan and add water. To the same pan, add sugar. Note that the sugar should completely immerse in water. Now, add the powdered cardamom to the sugar syrup. Cook the sugar syrup in low flame. Once the thickness is formed, keep the pan aside. After the urad dal becomes soft, transfer it to a bowl. To the bowl, add cornflour, rice flour and the red colouring agent. Mix all the ingredients well. Now take the pipping bag and add the ural dal mixture to it. Heat some oil (in sim mode) in the pan. After it has heated up, pipe the mixture in a round shape (that is in a jahangir form). Deep fry the jahangirs. Later, transfer the deep-fried jahangirs to the sugar syrup and dip them. Then, take out the jahangirs and transfer them on to a plate. Serve the hot jahangirs for the festive occasion and let us know your feedback.
