Shakkarpare / Goad Shankarpale

Ingredients to make Shakkarpare / Goad Shankarpale

  • 1/2 cup suji/ semolina
  • 2 1/2 - 3 Cups of maida / Refined flour
  • 1/2 Cup oil + for deep frying
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar

How to make Shakkarpare / Goad Shankarpale

  1. In a large mixing bowl take the 1/2 cup Suji and 1/2 cup Sugar and mix with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup refined Oil. Mix well and allow the mixture to stand for 20 minutes to half an hour.
  2. By this time sugar will dissolve completely and Semolina will also soften and swell a bit after absorbing the moisture.
  3. After 1/2 an hour add cup by cup Maida into the mixture and mix well. Keep on mixing the maida and kneading until a tight dough is formed.
  4. Cover the dough and set it aside for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, make 4-5 equal portions of the dough and roll out individual portions into thick chapatis using a rolling pin, without applying any flour.
  5. Using as sharp knife cut the chapati into diamond shape pieces.
  6. Deep fry these pieces in small batches on a low to medium heat from both sides until golden brown in color. Do not overcrowd the frying pan .Repeat the procedure for the rest of the dough balls.
  7. Remove them on a tissue paper to drain out excess oil and transfer them to airtight containers on cooling.

My Tip:

After frying each batch, raise the temperature of oil and again lower the flame and then fry the next batch. This will ensure that the shankarpale get cooked evenly at the same time do not burn.
