Excellent recipe, made it with whole wheat flour. Did not have methi leaves, but added some kasoori methi. Came out very good. Thanks.

I tried this recipe and it turned out awesome. They are so crispy and delicious. The methi lends a very nice flavour to this shakkarpara. The procedure is also very simple and quick. It is not very time consuming. All my family enjoyed it thoroughly.
