On what fafda jalebi is !!!

fafda jalebi is my niche on the web, created just so that I can share my ramblings, rants and raves with fellow netizens. 

Q:Why the name?
A: I wanted to start with a unique name.

Q:Why settle for fafda jalebi of all the other available concoctions?
: I have always had a sweet-tooth and also because of a particular incident that still brings a smile on my face.

Q: What of the incident?

A: While
discussing Indian cuisine and desserts in particular over a breakfast or lunch session at the SSDS workshop in Bangalore, a fellow participant (and a very dear friend) burst out,
"Have you tried any fafda jalebi? "
His sudden outburst, and introduction to a completely new entity had all of us laughing; a very nasal tone must have added to the humour. What followed were his exuberant raves about fafdajalebi and us cracking up even more.

Throughout the workshop, everyone called him by his new nickname - fafda jalebi. The name has stuck on my head ever since.

update on Oct 12, 2008
For the unordained millions and the confused housewives who ended up on my blog searching for a recipe for fafda jalebi.

Q:So, what exactly is fafda jalebi?
A: Fafda jalebi, is this supposedly salty sweet concoction of fafda and jalebi that Gujratis and residents of Ahmedabad love. This is a seriously popular Indian delicacy popular around Dussera.

Utsav Maden said...

@prxl: thanks for you comments. Hope to try them some day, hopefully at your place.

@kinley: Now that you told me, everything came coming back vividly! On forethought, pissing wouldn't have been an appropriate blog name.
