jangri-recipe

I don’t know when I started liking Jangri,but I love it like anything…That too,rose flavoured means I just love that divine smell…My mom and I have tried one or two times back at home,before marriage,but never succeeded…Recently when my mom visited to my place,she bought from Adyar anandha bhavan,the mini jangris,but that rose flavor was missing,as now a days,in sweet shops they use ghee for frying,mostly the ghee smell is dominating…then my mom suggested trying of my own…

Then I searched in you tube for videos for better understanding… Before also always this jangri will be in my back of mind and I have bookmarked our friend EC’s Jangris too…but you know,I was scared to try,if it doesn't comes out well…    But when I saw Vah chef’s video,It gave me a lot of confidence and as my mom was with me we decided to try it out..I got a overall idea from the video and made one day!! To Our surprise it was not bad at all and we all were satisfied-that includes my husband(who is not fond of jangris), and my son,who loves it just like me Batting Eyelashes.
It was very easy for me to make jangri,this is the fourth time I am making….but you know very difficult to take pics,gazillion times i had to wash hands and take pics…Whew.But its okay,its for my future reference and for you all,so I can forget abt it Big Grin.
And I am assuring you all,that it will come out well if tried with interest…Not very complicated!! Do try it once and let me knowCool.
jangri-1

Jangri recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweet
Prep Time: 2 Hours (soaking time)    |  Cook time: 45 mins    Makes: 30 medium jangri

Ingredients


Whole white urad dal/Muzhu ulutham paruppu  3/4 cup 
Rice flour (optional)  1 tsp 
Orange food colour  1/2 pinch 
Salt  A pinch 


For Sugar syrup

Sugar  3/4 cup 
water  Just to immerse the sugar 
Lemon juice  1/2 tsp 
Rose essence  4 drops 
Orange food colour  A pinch 

Prepare a slightly thin syrup for double soaking (optional)

Sugar  3/4 cup 
water  3/4 cup sugar 

Method:

  1. Soak urad dal for 2 hrs and grind with very little water as we do for grinding vadas.( Approximately less than 1/4 cup).The batter should be fluffy and smooth).Mix a pinch of salt,food colour and rice flour(if desired) and mix well.
  2. j1-horz
  3. Heat the sugar with water just to immerse it and after it starts boiling,let it boil for 3-4 minutes. One string consistency will be right for this, but just when a string starts to form is enough( ilam kambi padham) .Add lemon juice,food colour and lastly essence  and mix well and switch off the stove. Take a zip lock cover and make a hole with a thin nail as shown in the picture.The hole should be very tiny.
  4. j2-horz
  5. Fill half the cover with the batter and first practice doing in a plate…Draw two circle as shown and over it,draw small swirl like circles over it.Just practice 2-3 times you will get it right.
  6. j3-horz
  7. Then heat a broad,flat bottomed pan(keep the flame in low) with only little oil say 1 inch depth.
  8. The oil should not get fully heated,when it starts forming small,small bubbles in the bottom,then draw jangris in the oil,repeat the same to make many.
  9. j4-horz
  10. Once the jangris gets cooked and becomes light,turn over and cook till crisp and then take out carefully and transfer to the sugar syrup. I used Chop sticks for this,which works out very well.You can use the one they use for turning paniyaram…Dunk the fried jangris in hot sugar syrup for 1-2 minutes (if in two syrups, then first in thin syrup for a minute, secondly in thick syrup) and take out carefully and arrange it a plate.Give a 1/2 hour standing time.
  11. j5-horz

Notes

  • Do not stir sugar syrup always as it will make sugar syrup crystallize.
  • Use grinder or a mixie which will give you a fluffy batter.
  • I dint used rice flour since my jangris were coming out nice without it too,use if you are grinding in mixer.Other wise not important.
  • Sugar syrup thickness : For thin syrup, you can boil for 8 minutes. For thick syrup, as mentioned in step 2.
  • While making hole in the cover, do not heat the nail red hot,just heat it a little and make a hole other wise,the hole will become big.
  • Oil should always be heated in low flame or low-medium flame,other wise,the jangris will blow to a bigger size and become brittle or soggy.
  • Use only flat bottomed pan,with less oil as mentioned.
  • If you want you can use ghee too but use 50 percent oil 50 percent ghee.
  • Jangri should be light enough to absorb the syrup,if its too heavy(dense), then it won’t.
  • Keep for a day if you dont feel that the sugar syrup is not absorbed well by jangris. 
  • And lastly,if you are not comfortable with drawing the jangri shape,please,do make a comparatively bigger hole and make mini swirl like rings as they give as mini jangris in some shops,it will come out very cute!

Ready to enjoy!!! This is like my long time dream come true,I am satisfied with the taste,so if you too carve for jangris,please do try at home and let me know…

  1. Love Jangri. Yours look awesome. It is long time since i made it, looking at your post i am motivated to make it once again. I made it for last Diwali when my parents visited us and my Mom asked me to make it in a ziploc as i didn't have the Jangiri Cloth(Kada) with a hole in it. Kindling sweet memories.

  72. this post inspires one to try it; you have made it look so simple and easy! thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I tried out the jangri.can you
    please tell me how long should I fry the jangris.Mine became soggy
    and the syrup didnt enter inside
    fully.
    What could have gone wrong?
    Should the jangris be fried till really crisp?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Deepa
    Try this,fry till the jangris are stiff enough,when you remove from oil it should be crisp(cook in low flame)
    You must have took it before it turned stif...try cooking in low heat.

    And as for sugar syrup not getting absorbed,you must keep in mind that both jangris and syrup should be hot enough. If so at no time the jangris absorb the syrup.

    Or you can try dipping first in thin syrup and then again heating the syrup to one string consistency and again dipping the jangris in it.

    Also the urad dal quality should be good.

    Please try again in less quantity when you grind for vada and let me know.

    You can also mail me at the email given in my profile. Feel free to contact me !

  77. Hi Raks! Your jangri's look awesome! I just made some following sanjay thumma's recipe, and wanted to ask you something. My jangri's taste like sweet vadai, if you know what I mean. 'Uzhundu vasanai" romba dominating aa irukku..did you face this issue? How did you overcome that?

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi Ambika, I know what you mean, when me and my mom used to try first time we too got the same problem.. To my knowledge,if the jeera dint get absorbed by the jangri properly,then it smells so,I am now a days adding rose essence and the crisp texture(light and hallow) helps to absorb the jeera completely inside and it smells good like jangri :) What you add for flavor?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hey Raks, thanks for the reply! I also added rose essence and cardamom powder. But I guess that was the problem, my sugar syrup might have been too thick and did not get absorbed very well, will keep that in mid the next time :) And do you know how to make milk/nei mysorepak (the very soft melt in your mouth mysorepak) Raks?? I see so many sweets on your blog, so I thought I could ask you!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Hi Raks,

    Yummy Jangris. Should we keep 1 string consistency for the sugar syrup? I am confused because in Vahchef's video it is said so but in your recipe you have not explicitly mentioned. Please reply.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Yes you can take it as one string consistency

    ReplyDelete
  97. I tried this today for my husband's birthday,taste was great but I could not get the shape right so just made circles :( as soon as I made big circle the jangri would run away so I could not draw small circles then I understood why you said oil must be low heat,anyways next time I will try! Thank you soo much!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Hi appu, you can also try making mini jangris,no need to draw in pattern,just can make it like the mini jangris we get in Adyar Ananda Bhavan...

    ReplyDelete

  100. hi

    i wanted to try this recipe. I have a doubt can u pls tell me how much time u required to grind the dal. Because when i grind i am not sure how much it should be smooth, so just to know how much u take to grind the dal & how to know that we exactly reached the consistency while grinding.

    ReplyDelete

  104. hi , i tried out jangri it was good but my sugar syrup gets crystalized(i had one string consitency)can u give me a suggestion

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hi koks, Did you add lemon juice? Try boiling with more water for longer time and donot stir in between, this will definitely give you a syrup like honey.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Thank you raks, i added lemon juice yaar,i will try with more water next time

    ReplyDelete
  107. turned out good..thanks for the recipe. only thing was i kinda got a taste of urad dal in the end of the bite...any suggestions? thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hi raks,

    thank you,u r wonderful,
    naveena

  109. hi raks,
    yesterday i saw your jangri recipe. i was scared little bit to do since i did not have grinder (iam in US so no grinder). i grinded the batter in mixie. it came out perfectly well. the consistency came out just right as vada batter. still i added rice flour a bit. the jangiri came out perfectly well. guess what my husband said, he said it is better than the shops we buy (the best). all the credits goes to u, raks. i followed your other recipes like cabbage kootu, Naan, rasgulla, peas paratha, aloo bindi masala,badhusha the list goes on. it all came out very well. i feel your recipes are very interesting, the step by step procedures are explained & photos are taken which makes cooking easier for us.than u so much

    ReplyDelete
  110. Shimz, if u eat just after finishing, it happens, keep it for a day in fridge and probably that might help.
    Chinni, was your batter fluffy and light? may be the batter was too tight... try with a better quality urad dal and the batter should be not too thick and heavy.
    Shweta,

    Thanks so much for your feedback, it made my day :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hiii Raks,

    I am Sruthi. I just wanna say... "YOU ARE A TRUE INSPIRATION" to everyone. Your pictures and words sound soo simple, that we are tempted to try.

    As mentioned in the above comments, even I usually do not get the sugar syrup correct. One mistake I was doing all these days that I do not add lemon, and also stir in between. Soo with in no time it gets hardened. I should again pour more water and get it to the consistency I need.

    If it's possible please tell me how much time it will take to get the correct consistency, If I follow the quantities as you mentioned.

    I tried many many of your recipes. Thanks to you... and lots of hugsss...

    -Sruthi.

  117. hi raks
    i regularly visit ur site and jeyashri blog on daily basis

    usually for diwali i do gulab jamuns(mtr mix) and vadai
    after 4 yrs of marriage i am going to do sweets
    i picked 2 dishes from jeyashri blog and ur jangri made me to try it out

    i have few doubts regarding that

    ur mixture b4 putting in bag it is in semi solid form but in ur bag it is watery

    i dont have rice flour.i should grind my urud dhal in mixie.shall i grind i tbsp of raw rice in mixie itself

    i dont have rose essence.shall i put cardamom in sugar syp

    u have told both sugar syp and jangris should be hot.should i do both simultaneously?

    i am scared to do jangris directly into oil.can i draw jangris in the back of spatula and dip it on oil?

    if i am using half cup of urad dhall.what is the ratio of water and sugar?

    can we add pachai karpuram and can rice flour be subsituted by corn flour?

    sorry i have asked too may questions?

  118. GG K, Saffron will give very mild colour, we can use very less only as using more will give a different smell. So If you are not concerened about the colour, you can try using saffron.

    Meenal,
    My mixture is the same as I ground, may be it looks like watery, but if I make it watery before adding to the bag, I will sure mention that in my post. I make sure that I write what I do exactly as I am also concerned about who are going to try. So Its the same batter, may be it looks as if its watery in the picture.

    If you are grinding 1 tblsp of rice separately in mixer, you may want to add more water to get it smooth, which in turn makes the jangri batter also watery. If you want you can try grinding together with the dal, but I am not sure if both gets ground together smoothly.

    Cardamom can be added in place of essence but if you add essence it will very well suppress the urad dal smell. So its upto you.

    If you use 1/2 cup dal, 1/2 cup sugar and water just to immerse is enough. If you make more, you can always use it later for other syrups like jamun syrup or something like that.

    And you cannot make it in back of ladle and fry in oil later as its going to be sticky. Draw mini jangris, just a swirl if you dont want to make big like in the pictures.

    Pachai karpuram is a great idea, but use only a fenugreek seed size as it is very strong flavor.

    And corn flour is also a good idea. U can very well use.

    Its okay, we do get a lot of questions when we really are going to try :) Glad if I could help you in any way :) All the best And Happy Diwali..

    i tried ur maida biscuits with wheat .it came out well.both in spicy and sweet version.

    in a frying pan i added both sugar and coconut and kept in low flame.(dessicated)coconut immediately turned brown and then only sugar started melting.it came crispy texture.could u tell me where i made mistake

    i tried jangiri also.it came little soggy.but ok

  122. Prepared Jangri for this diwali came out awesome. Thanks for step by step recipe.

  123. Meenal,

    You need little moisture in the coconut for melting the sugar without getting caramelized.
    So try with fresh grated coconut.

    Sorry about the other disasters! I have no idea why you dint get right!!

  128. Raji have you eaten Jangiri at Saravana bhavan. Their Jangiri is crispy from outside yet sucks sugar syrup well. Actually there will be small bubble of uncrystalised sugar syrup inside the jangiri. I tried a version very similar to yours. It was crispy and sweet also, but it did not meet Saravana bhavan quality. I guess there is some secret ingredient. Someone told me to add Arrowroot starch in place of rice flour. If you find that out, do let me know.

  129. Hi Raks,

    You have told that both Jangri and syrup should be hot.
    How do you keep syrup hot while making all the jangri's (it will take time), because if we keep syrup in gas for long would it become thick?

    1. Just heat the syrup if its get cold. Not that it should boil all the time.

  130. Hi,
    I tried jangry in my home. It became very soggy and it did not absorb the sugar syrup to its full. i am not able to find what went wrong. if you could help me with what went wrong, i will try one more time rectifying the mistake

  131. Hi
    Your jangiri looks super. I tried but it did not come out well.
    Following are the problems
    1. It just got separated into powder when put in oil, i added some more rice flour and tried again, some shape in round came but it was not soft after dipping in sugar syrup. It was crisp.
    Also one more thing i noticed was when i did it oil the size was moderate, then it became big finally it became very small. What could be the problem?
    regards,
    Lakshmi

    1. Looks like you made the batter with excess water. It would have been more airy. Next time make a thick batter, but denser.
