  9. What lovely photographs. Hope you’re enjoying every moment of your celebration. The jalebi look perfect. One q. that might seem obvious, but the golden color would be from saffron or…? 🙂

    Laxmi gaaru: Pandaga subhakanshalu meeku kuda.
    chakrapongali vishayam chadavi bhada ayindi. endukani kudaraledu? Chakkara leda bellam, edi vesi chesaaru? Ekkada poyindo raayandi, vere rakam ga cheyadaaniki vastundemo alochana cheddamu.

    Thanks Linda.
    I think the color is from saffron. They tasted really pure and with no chemical color aftertaste.

  15. It amazes me the way you present things!! I am in awe of your blog!! I can not tell you how much of an inspiration you are to me..

  16. Hi Indira,

    Thanks for the response. I am honored. I used half cup of rice and half cup of moong dal and cooked this mixture with 2cups of milk and 3 cup of rice.Then later I made syrup with one and quarter cup of gaggery and one cup of water…..
    I think my pakam(gaggery syrup) is very little and when I added rice mixture to it is just got thick and it didn’t cook in the pakam….So next time I have to put more water in pakam I think.
    Sorry to take the lot space here.
    I hope next time it will come out very good. I really really like this sweet. In my home my mother never made it. I had ataste of chakrapongali first time in one of the temple. The taste of the prasadam was very amazing. I never forgot that. Someday I will master this sweet.

    Thank you.

  18. oops i am so sorry i didn’t read the part that says…. “Thank you Yasin bhai for sending the delicious jilebi for us! “… poor hubby thought i would prepare this for him. If its okay with you could you please delete both of my comments as it may be misleading for others. Thanks
