Shakarpara / Shakarpali

Hello friends,

Its been quite some time I have posted some new recipe  on my blog. Went through some health issues and after that India trip. Missed all the lovely and  delicious recipes from my dear BM friends. Now as am back to blogging wanted to start with a sweet snack.

Today we are starting with BM 46, my theme for this week is "Car Snacks."  Road trips are awesome. Staying in US, we spend quite some time on roads travelling to different places. Whether it could be for a site seeing or to meet friends and families.

Its always good to prepare something at home to munch on during drive. Much better if you choose to make something that is mess free and easy to pass on. For day 1, I have made  Shakarpara  / Shankarpali. This is not only a great snack for road trips, but also made during Festivals in India.

Here goes the recipe for Shakarpara..........


We need:

Maida 2 1/2 to 3 cups
Sugar 1/2 cup
Butter/ ghee 1/2 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
Pinch of salt
Oil for deep frying


Mix milk and butter in microwave safe bowl.
Microwave  on high for a minute just to melt the ghee.
Now add sugar and let it melt.
Now add maida few spoons at a time to mix and make soft dough.
Do not make the dough too soft. It should be bit harder than the roti dough.
Cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.
Now remove the dough and mix it well again.
Now make it into 4 to 5 portions.
Roll each portion as roti, it should be bit think.
There will be slight cracks in the edges after rolling.
Cut of the edges to remove them.
Now cut the roti into desired shape.
Usually Shakarpara are small bit size squares or diamond shaped.
Heat oil and deep fry these pieces till golden brown.
Store in air tight container for up to 1 month.
