Jangiri Recipe-Mini Mini Beetroot Jangiri with Palm Sugar Syrup

Jangiri Recipe-Beetroot Jangiri with Palm Sugar Syrup:

Diwali Fever is on and I am so obsessed with trying new recipes with a healthy twist. Jangiri is a healthy sweet recipe which originated in India and is most often confused with Jalebi. Jangiri is made with ground urad dhal and jalebi is made with maida. Jalebi needs fermentation whereas jangiri recipe is instant.Jangiri is chewy and gooey while Jalebi is crunchy. Both have added colours and white sugar syrup.But my recipe today has replaced them completely making it healthy.
I once tried this jangiri when I had excess urad dhal batter and beetroots. They turned super yummy and it was completely approved by my toddler. But then I didn’t attempt clicking step by step pictures or using palm sugar.I am novice cook experimenting healthy alternatives.Imperfections do occur.
