'Shankarpali'  is a sweet snack which is made in most of the houses in Maharashtra during Diwali. 'Shankarpali' is a good tea time snack and kids love to eat this as it serves as a perfect finger food!

Milk 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Ghee (clarified butter) 3/4 cup
Salt 1/2 tsp
Maida (all purpose flour) 3 cups
Oil for deep frying

  1. Boil milk, add sugar and stir till the sugar dissolves completely. Add salt to this mixture.
  2. Take maida in a flat bottom plate. Make a well in center and add ghee. Mix well with maida and slowly start adding the milk (with sugar dissolved) to make a dough. The dough should be thicker than that of roti dough.
  3. Rest the dough for 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes of resting take small portion of the dough and make a thin roti like shape. Cut into desired shape and deep fry till golden brown.
  5. Store in an airtight container after it cools down completely after frying.
