HOW TO MAKE SUGAR SYRUP FOR SWEETS (VIDEO POST) | DIWALI SWEETS RECIPES

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum

one string consistency

Hi friends ,
I wanted to make this post on "How to make sugar syrup for various Indian sweets with stepwise pictures" but i couldn't.Even this time i am doing post in the last minute.Sorry for that:(My parents are here and i was busy in attending family functions.Diwali is nearing our door steps. I hope most of u would have started trying diwali sweets and snacks. Many of u would have got it right and some people would have lost due to sugar syrup. Here is a video post for those who want to learn and see the different stages of sugar syrup. Last year i made a post on sugar syrup consistency with step by step pictures.. From that time i wanted to post a video to help beginners like me.I am happy that i could make it at least now Eye rolling smile..

In this post , i have given 3 videos . One for “How to remove the dirt /scum from sugar” and another one for "Different consistencies of sugar syrup” and the third one for “Jaggery syrup consistency for adhirasam”.
After taking so many videos , i am satisfied with this one and posted here. As i had camera in one hand , i couldn’t use both the hands for mixing and testing the syrup.I usually check the syrup by touching the syrup from the corner or back of the ladle. Here i have not mentioned the time taken for each consistency as i switched off the flame every time to take videos for each consistency.Roughly it takes 3-4 minutes( in medium flame) right from switching on the stove to reach half string .After that it took 1-2 minutes for reaching further consistencies.I’ll try to update the timings soon. I used 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water to make the consistencies reach very slowly. But it takes lesser water than this quantity.

Thanks for watching these videos. I hope these videos are helpful for beginners to understand the consistencies to certain extent.Keep practicing. U’ll become the master Smile..Experts , do excuse Smile..

  2. This has to be one of the most useful posts. Sugar syrup crossing the required consistency can totally ruin the preparation.
