Delicious Jalebi Measuring 6” in Diameter, Weighing 250g

Generally, a thin crisp sweet jalebi is about2 inches in diameter. However, Maatu’s each jalebi measured approximately6 inches in diameter and weighed about250 grams.

If you are visiting the mela, buy one jalebi at least.  Lala Maatu Ram Halwai, a popular sweet shop, is located in Gohana, Sonipat,Haryana,India.
