  1. you can also add rose essence in sugar syrup. 
  2. do not boil the sugar syrup until 1 string consistency. 
  3. If batter is thin, then add rice flour to make it thick
  4. Oil had to be medium hot and not too hot. 
  5. syrup has to be warm. if it gets thick before you add jhangris. just heat it up again with few drops of water.
