Piping Hot Jalebis


As our trip to India nears, I’ve got Indian sweets on the brain.  Piping hot Jalebis, cooked in Desi Ghee, are quite possibly the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth.  Jalebis are made from gram flour that is deep fried, in the best case in Desi Ghee (clarified butter), then soaked in boiling sugar.   So the end result is dripping hot fried batter soaked in sugary syrup.  I am a pretty clean eater; I save up my junk-food rations for over-the-top indulgences.  There’s a spot in Delhi that is famous for its Jalebis.  I found this video that shows you the famous Jalebiwala at work:

Until next time, sweet dreams of sweet Jalebis!

Leaving on a Jet Plane…

I’ve been itching for a journey for quite a while now, and finally the plans have been made.  We’re going to India, and I cannot wait!  The journey is, in so many ways, the reward for me.  I love the adventure, I love the hunt, I love never knowing what kind of colorful magic I’m going to find down the next alleyway. I will admit that this trip is going to be more stressful than our last, as my business has grown quite a bit.  So there are lots of things things that I will have to maintain from overseas. But where there is internet, there is a way!   I want to let all of my customers know that during my absence, there may be a slight shipping delay.  From November 13- December 20, expect your orders to take a few extra days to ship.  Sorry to add to your holiday stress, but that’s the way it is!

I promise to share pictures of the journey here, and on my social media outlets.  So if you aren’t following me already, now’s the time.  Here are my feeds:

Off to plan for my travels.
Until next time,
