my friend T gave me this last night; it’s called jalebi. the way she described it, it’s basically fried batter soaked in flavored syrup. it’s very good but you can’t really eat a lot of it because it’s also very sweet. i had it with tea (unsweetened, of course). it kinda reminds me of our palipit or the american funnel cakes 🙂 BTW, that’s syrup, not oil. i warmed the jalebi a little before eating.
