We have a saying which describes someone as straight (in social dealings with fellow human beings) as Jalebi. Jalebi is the name of a popular sweet in Pakistan as well as in several other countries.

A paste of wheat flour batter in squeezed out of a cotton bag in circular shape and deep fried in oil:


It is fried until it becomes crunchy:


It is then taken out and soaked sugar syrup. Sorry, no photo.

It is served hot and is quite popular.

      Thanks Mike. It is a delicacy in the sense that it is only sold at special shops. Taste (sweetness and crunchy-ness) differ and only few can make it good.
