Method : 

Finely grind the white gram dal with little water. Mix salt in it and make a smooth batter of semi-thick consistency.

Heat sugar in a pan and add water into it. Add the jilebi colour and remove from the fire when it thickens. 

Heat oil in a thick bottom vessel. Squeeze the prepared batter into the oil through a thin layered cloth. While squeezing the batter, first make three rounds and a flower shape on top. When it is done (don't fry), remove from oil. Allow oil to drain.  Put the jilebis into the warm sugar syrup. Take out after they soak in the syrup for about 15 minutes. Make jilebi's with the whole batter.
