Jalebi are one of the most common and favourite sweets in Nepal. They are deep-fried yellow-orange loops dipped in saffron syrup. Jalebi taste best when freshly made as they are crisp and the filling is succulent and aromatic. When they cool they lose their crispness and the filling crystallizes but they are still delicious. I like to eat them with yogurt (dhai) to tone down their sweetness.
