Best Shankarpali Recipe | Shakkar Para for Festivals

Shankarpali/Shakkarpara is made during Diwali and other Indian festivals.Nothing beats a bowl of shakkarpaare with a cup of tea, ,its heaven.I call it the "Indian Cookie" as its melt in the mouth,so light and very delicioooooooooo,but only if you make it right.

Adding the right amount of ghee and sugar is very important,by doing this you will have melt in the mouth shakkarpare everytime.

This is by far the best recipe for shankarpali i have tried..and its a must try !

 For best results use powdered sugar and the best quality ghee you can get.
t.i.p > use equal proportion of ghee,sugar and milk.

you need
same proportion of ghee,sugar and milk

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup ghee
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp semolina
1 pinch salt
1 or 2 cardamom

heat all this together till you get a beautiful golden liquid
P.s> remove the cardamom pod,before making the dough

for this there is no exact amount of flour that goes in
add little at a time till you get a semi soft dough
 approx 1 1/2 cups of flour will go in.

looks like a paste? don't panic,add more flour till you get a semi soft dough

finally the dough is ready !
add some ghee on top of the dough and allow to rest 30 min(not more)
 The rolling of the dough is the important part,do not roll it thin,keep it thick.

cut in strips,diamond shape or stars like i did
it is totally your choice

 make sure you fry them on low heat,they need to get brown evenly.

 I think stars are the perfect shape for diwali.
Cool them completely,and eat away.Store them in an air tight box for later.

Happy Diwali you all,hope you try these !

Ginger and Garlic Flavoured Rice | Garlic and Ginger Tempered Rice

We are used to having biryanis,pulaos,kichidis,ghee rice,tomato rice and so many other rice varieties right?
But have you ever tasted a ginger/garlic rice before? If not give it a shot..Its damn good,serve it with spicy daal ,onion omelet and your seriously gonna love it..

When ever you serve this it might look like plain rice,but once your family tastes it they will get a big surprise as it is packed with flavour and also the aroma is amazing.

For best results make sure to not brown the garlic and ginger and also this dish tastes best if the garlic and ginger is not made into a fine paste.

Mouthwatering Ginger and Garlic Flavoured Rice

looks like regular steamed rice,but its very flavourful

saute about 5/6 cloves of garlic(more is fine too) with
small piece of ginger,curry leaf and green chili in ghee for 2 min

add in salt cook another not brown the mix
mix in cooked rice and cover so all the flavours are combined

give it a try
It tastes so good.This dish is a hit in my house,hope your family loves it too.
