Savory shankarpali recipe

Savory shankarpali recipe is a spicy sister of the sweet version and commonly known as “namkeen” or “tikhat shankarpali”.

The North Indian name given to this snack is “shakkar pare”. An ideal advantage of making fried snacks is that you can store them for a longer time. Storing Shankarpali is possible upto 2 weeks, however, ensure they store in air tight containers. For deep frying, let the oil or ghee come to a medium hot temperature. Release the diamond cut shankarpali when on hot flame and turn down to medium after 5-10 seconds. This method ensures that the outer covering remains crisp and the insides are venly. Once deep fried, drain excess oil on kitchen paper towels. Look for the spicy shankarpali marathi recipe online.

Current Version of Shankarpali

In our version of shankarpali we have used rawa, maida and wheat flour. For seasoning, we have used crushed pepper and ajwain seeds. Ajwain lends a great flavor as well as helps digest these deep fried goodies without any trouble. Follow the instructions and measurements step-by-step and you will end up with the perfect crunchy-flaky shankarpali. Resting the dough for a while before you start rolling is important. Mostly, Indians fry shankarpalis in oil or ghee. If oil isn’t your favourite option as a fitness enthusiast, these snacks can even be baked in the oven. This reduces the calorie content and makes binging guilt-free. Check the recipe for baked savory shankarpali for further details.
