ABOUT Satpura (Sindhi Sweet) RECIPE

This is a Traditional Sindhi sweet and is prepared in the month of Shravan for the Satai / Satam ( Saptami ) Festival. The process is a bit tedious and tricky, how to roll and fry these with perfection controlling the heat without making them brown. They have to be white and crunchy. I have learnt this from my grandmother.

Should we deep fry it?
