  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, gram flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix well.
  2. Slowly add water and mix to form a smooth batter. The consistency should be similar to a pancake batter.
  3. Cover the bowl and let the batter rest for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the sugar syrup by combining sugar, milk, and cardamom powder in a saucepan. Cook on medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the syrup thickens slightly. Keep the syrup warm.
  5. Heat ghee or oil in a deep frying pan.
  6. Pour the batter into a squeeze bottle or piping bag with a small nozzle.
  7. Squeeze the batter in a spiral shape directly into the hot ghee/oil, making sure not to overlap the jalebis.
  8. Fry the jalebis on medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Drain excess oil and immediately dip the jalebis in the warm sugar syrup.
  9. Let the jalebis soak in the syrup for 1-2 minutes, then remove and place them in the kulhads for serving.

Serve hot and enjoy the crispy, syrupy goodness of Kulhad wali Jalebi.
