ShakkarPara is one of the most popular jar snacks, in households across the country. It is known by different names but is loved by all. Since it is easy to make, it is also made in large volumes, especially during festive occasions like Diwali, when it is served along with tea to friends and family who visit. ShakarPara can be made sweet or savoury. Here is a tongue-tickling Namkeen ShakarPara, which is perked up with curds, sesame seeds, spice powders and fenugreek leaves. This large and thoughtful assortment of ingredients boosts the flavour of the ShakarPara so much that it becomes difficult to stop munching on this delightful farsaan.
