Diwali preparation of the day – Shankarpalli

Last evening I began making the traditional goodies for Diwali. The first has to be my all time favorite. Tukdi more commonly known as Shankarpalli or Shakarpara.

My mum makes the best Shankarpalli in the world. The ones that melt in your mouth. But as usual her recipe does not have fixed measurements which can be difficult for a person like me who prefers cooking new recipes with exact measurements. So once again I am dependent on Cherie to help. Her recent post uses the same ingredients and method that mom does. So I followed it step by step and voila it was a success. The only difference is I prefer them slightly darker in shade so I let them fry for longer on medium heat

I am really proud of myself. Thanks Cherie and Mommy.

Happy Diwali preparations to everyone 🙂
