Shakarpara Recipe

Shakarpara is a popular Indian sweet snack made during festivals like Diwali. It is a crispy and crunchy snack made with all-purpose flour, sugar, and ghee. The dough is rolled into small squares or diamond shapes and deep-fried until golden brown. The fried shakarpara is then coated with a sugar syrup, giving it a sweet and syrupy texture. It is a perfect tea-time snack and can be stored for a few weeks in an airtight container.
