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 !

  1. Can I use margarine if I don't have ghee. Also is semolina an essence?
