Lion: Nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and four more
In the touching film Lion, Saroo, played by Dev Patel, sets out to find his birth parents in India. While on his journey, Saroo has flashbacks of his childhood and the most notable memory is sparked by the scent of a sweet, Indian treat—jalebi.
Similar to a funnel cake, this popular sweet is deep fried and then soaked in a sugar syrup. The flavors of jalebi—saffron, turmeric, and cardamom— will transport your taste buds to India. Yes, it's fried, but everything in moderation right?!
