​​Jalebi is a famous Indian Sweet Dish. It is a popular street treat that has also been escalated to some fine dine restaurants. It's essentially a flour dough fried in ghee and then soaked into a thick sugar syrup with some saffron. The jalebi in this recipe is a rose jalebi that has been flavoured with rose syrup to bring out that rich and fragrant aroma of a rose from the jalebi.
