LAHORE , PAKISTAN : MAKIN’ JALEBI !

Jalebi, also known as zulbia and zalabia, is a sweet made by deep-frying maida flour batter in pretzel or circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup.

This kind Jalebi maker invited me to take pictures of his process. Awesome. And the Jalebi was delicious, too!
