Jalebee

One interesting item at the Fair Price Supermarket is this, which you first saw June 9, 2006, on Mumbai Daily Photo: it’s jalebee! Had I not seen that post, I would never have known what this pastry was made of or was called.

With lady shoppers dressed in saris and authentic colorful pastries, I have a little tiny piece of India right here in my neighborhood. That’s what you can find only in one of the lesser known corners of the West End.

    Okay, don’t be a tease! What is it made of? Have you tasted it?

    It’s your basic sugar with some wheat dough fried in butter and a sugar glaze. Haven’t tasted it, as I’m trying to avoid sugar these days.

    I read the description and it doesn’t sound too appetizing. However, maybe I would be surprised. If I ever come across it I will have to try it.
