  • 1  large apple – Cored and sliced 
  • Oil for frying
  • Few Almonds crushed for garnishing


  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour(maida)
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon suji
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • A pinch of red food color
  • A pinch of salt

Sugar syrup:

  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • A pinch of cardamom powder


Core apples and cut into thin slices.

In a pan add water,sugar and cook on medium heat until the syrup comes to a boil. Keep cooking on low flame until a 1/2 thread consistency is achieved.

Mix all the ingredients for the batter, cover and let sit for half an hour to ferment.

Heat oil in shallow pan on medium till hot. Dip apple slices in the batter and fry them on medium heat 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown. (Add in a few teaspoons more water if the batter is too thick.)

Remove from oil and place the fritters in warm sugar syrup. 

Flip after half a minute so the other side can soak as well. Remove from the syrup after half a minute.

If the syrup cools down, start up the stove on low for half a minute and switch off. Continue for all Jalebis. Top with chopped almonds and serve immediately.
