Steps In Making Atta Shakarpara
- In a pan over medium flame add sugar and water and keep stirring till the sugar dissolves completely. Now keep it aside and let it come down to room temperature.
- In a large bowl add whole wheat flour and semolina and mix well.
- Now add ghee and rub the mixture together. It will form a sand like texture and when you will hold it in between your hands tightly, it will form into a ball.
- To make the dough, add sugar water into two parts and knead for 5-6 minutes and make a firm dough. Cover it with a lid and let it rest for 30 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 3 equal parts and form round balls/peda.
- On a plain surface roll thick chapatis with a rolling pin and then cut them into small square or diamond shape. Similarly make all the shakarparas.
- In a pan over medium flame add oil and heat them on medium flame. Now carefully add the shakarpara and fry them on low – medium flame for 7-8 minutes till it gets a golden colour crust. They will become slightly large in size after frying and form small layers.
- Remove the fried wheat shakarpara’s on a tissue paper and let them cool down completely before storing for upto 2 months.
- While kneading the dough make sure it’s not very soft, else the shakarpara’s wont get the perfect crunchy texture.
- Don’t roll the shakarpara’s too thin, else they will become hard and wont get the perfect layers.
- Never fry these wheat shakar para’s on high flame, else they will remain uncooked from the centre.
- You can add sesame seeds too while mixing the dry ingredients.
- Let them cool down completely before storing, else they will turn soft.
