Shakkar Para Recipe, Shankarpali Recipe, Sweet Shankarpali

Shakkar Pare Recipe
Shakkar Pare Recipe with step by step pictures - Shakkar Pare or Shankarpali  is the sweet version of Namak Pare which I posted few days back.As mittu loved the snack I was way too tempted to try the sweet version too and as I expected she loved this too and kept asking for more,she has demanded me to make it again but in a huge batch for her to munch for a week it seems :D I have to make it soon as today I made a very small batch on trial and its already done.

I googled for recipes and had a confusion with Shakkar Para and Shankarpali, but finally found in wikipedia that this  same snack is called Shakkarpara in Gujarati and Shankarpali in Marathi.Though there is a mild difference between Shakkarpare and Shankarpali recipes, I thought to try a version which kind of combines both recipes,so saw the ingredients list in wikipedia and tried it on my own.Shankarpali does not have this sugar syrup coating and look more like this sweet diamond cuts though the recipe is different from it.

 Now lets get on to learn how to make this easy sweet snack Shakkar Pare..Shall we?!

My Notes:

  • While rolling, do not roll it thin,it should be slightly thick like crackers.
  • You can prick holes with a fork before frying the biscuits to avoid puffing like I did for namak pare.
  • If you are scared about missing the right consistency, check for one string when it forms a thick one string add the biscuits and keep stirring with the flame on and when it starts to harden and white patches appear here and there switch off.
  • You can also increase sooji to 1 tsp if you want a more crunchy version.
  • Fry until its golden brown else it will become chewy and not crispy.
  • You can make it fully with maida too or use wheat flour fully too.
