Shankarpali kids favorite

How to make Shankarpali

I really have no idea where the name came from. These are sweet candies made specially during Diwali time. I love to munch on it while I am blogging or writting.

Here is what we need -

  • 1/2 cup clarified butter or ghee or oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • all purpose flour
  • oil for deep frying

Whats Next -

Take oil, milk and sugar in a heavy bottom pan. I used canola oil. Keep the stove on medium heat. Switch off the stove as soon as the mixture comes to boil.

Let it cool off. Add as much flour it takes to make a soft dough. It takes around 3 cups of flour. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile take out rolling pin, pizza cutter or knife. keep deep kadai/pan ready for frying.

Roll the dough in chapati like shape. Cut it to small cubes with pizza cutter or knife. Deep fry it on medium heat. When you take out from oil shankarpali seems soft but then it becomes crispy.

Happy cooking!
