indian dessert

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.

    that looks really sweet. did it become soggy? do you like it better than pilipit?

    in the other post about the royals i commented about c's belgian friend that she brought to pampanga. (they used to work in sudan as medical volunteers). we ate at apag marangle and we ordered some buko-pandan juice with the coconut strips. they served it in a garapon and she asked what the white strips were. i told her they were coconut meat.

    apparently, they looked very similar to ascaris, the parasite worms 😀

    nope, it didn't become soggy at all. it actually became a bit crispy after i took it out of the oven. i'm not sure i like it better than pilipit. i kinda like dunking the pilipit in coffee, HA HA HA!

    so, did C's friend still try the coconut strips?

    yes, she did. she saw how c and i liked it very much so i guess she just had to try it 😀
