Urad dal - 1 cup
Sugar - 2cups
Water - 1 cup
Color - 1/2 or 3/4 tsp
Oil for frying

Soak urad dal in water overnight. Wash it thoroughly and grind it to a fine thick paste adding little water now and them. Do not add more water as it will become very liquid. You can add the food color while grinding. Transfer the batter into a zip lock and make a small hole in the ziplock to make jangiri.

Heat oil in a deep vessel. Start making circles with the batter into the oil without breaking to make jangiri. You can make 3 to 4 jangiris at a time. Fry till it turns golden color and becomes crispy. Meanwhile make sugar syrup.

To make sugar syrup:
Add 1 cup of water to the sugar and keep it on low flame to get the required consistency. You can add cardamom, rose water and some saffron to the syrup if you want.

Remove from the oil and transfer it in the sugar syrup. Let it be in the syrup for a minute or two, then remove from that. Keep repeating the process until the batter is over.

Serve hot or store in a container.

Note: If you want jangiri to be more crispy, you can add  1 tbs of rice flour to the batter. This is optional.
