Shankarpale are mildly sweet snack , perfectly crisp with melt-in-the-mouth texture. In Marathi this texture is called “khuskhusheet “. No wonder kids love it!
With the festival of Ganapati in full swing , the festive food just keeps coming , with the Modaks being the star of the festival. We do see a lot of other sweets like sooji sheera , coconut burfi , pedha and the list goes on.
But this time my son made a request for the Shankarpale. I was a bit surprised , as he generally requests for Puranpoli and Laddo. But if the kid asks for something , Moms have to make it , isn’t it ? No option ;-). Thank god that he asked for something this simple.
The only skill required while making Shankarpale is patience , as these have to be fried on a medium –low flame ,till they turn golden brown. It is the only way to get the melt-in-the-mouth texture.
It’s a great snack for kids boxes . Also an awesome side to the evening tea!
So just keep calm , and go ahead ,give the recipe a shot! Sharing with you the recipe, enjoy ! }
