A perfect festive dish. Apple jilebis are fritters soaked in sugar syrup. The sweetness from outside and soft apple inside is a lovely combination. The consistency of the sugar syrup is that of gulab jamun. If you want, you can add a little bit of red colour to the syrup. Not only almonds, pistachios or saffron can also be sprinkled on top of these jilebis. Just try this out.

  1. For the Sugar syrup: Mix water, sugar and cardamom powder and keep this on a medium flame. Stir well till all the sugar gets dissolved and when it becomes 1/2 thread consistency, turn off the flame.
  2. Peel the skin of the apples and scoop out the seeds using a sharp ended knife. Slice the apple into perfect rounds and keep this aside.
  3. Mix 2 tbsp of maida along with cinnamon powder and dust the sliced round pieces of apples.
  4. In a bowl, mix together the remaining maida, curd and required amount of water. Make sure that the batter should not be watery. It should be a little thick.
  5. Heat oil for deep frying. Dip each dusted apple slices in the maida batter and slip them slowly into the hot oil. When they turn golden brown in colour, remove and dip them slowly into the prepared sugar syrup.
  6. When the pieces are completely coated in sugar syrup, remove and enjoy these hot apple jilebis as it is or with rabdi/ ice cream.
