Recipe Notes For Shakkar Pare

  • Add ghee only once the sugar melts else later the sugar wont dissolve properly.
  • Earlier when you knead the dough it might look soft, but after couple of hours it will firm up as the maida will absorb all the liquid.
  • Fry them on low flame else from the outside they will cook and inside will remain uncooked. Also the shaker paras wont become fluffy if you cook them on high flame.
