  2. Sieve the whole wheat flour and salt together in a deep bowl with the help of a strainer.
  3. Add the milk-sugar mixture, a little at a time and knead into a firm dough.
  4. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
  5. Roll out a portion into 175mm. (7”) diameter circle.
  6. Cut it into 25 mm. (1") diamond shaped pieces and prick each diamond with a fork.
  7. Heat the ghee in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry the shakarparas, a few at a time on a slow flame till they are golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
  8. Repeat steps 5 to 7 to make more shakarparas in 3 more batches.
  9. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container.

Can I use jaggery instead of sugar ?

Tarla Dalal    Hi, you can use jaggery sugar instead of sugar. In case if you use jaggery, you need to check the consistency of the dough as it might release water. Do make the recipe with jaggery and give us your feedback..

Tarla Dalal    Hi Aradhna, This is a tried and tested recipe.Your Shakarparas will not hold their shape and break when you fry them, if you add more butter. Make sure you fry them on a slow flame.

The recipe sounds easy compare to other shakarpara recipes where one has to make separate syrup (Chashni). Can we use half maida and half gehun ka atta?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Savita, You can try using half and half , we have not tried it. But we suggest you make the recipe the way it is to get the best taste.
