Shankarpali RecipeShankarpali recipe is one of the Diwali sweets. They are crispy and sweet dessert which melts in mouth giving you great feel. As Shankarpali recipe is made with sugar it is rich in carbohydrates. People who are health conscious may like to bake instead of deep frying.

Usually this recipe is made with all purpose flour or maida in two ways either deep frying or baking. Some times when you deep fry you may get darker output so baking is a good idea. In Maharastra, people like to have this recipe as a tea time snack. Also this recipe can be stored for min 2-3 weeks.

Taste and texture vary with the way you cook. Indians are habituated for non-baking methods especially for festive recipes. I have been though by my grand parents that each recipe is made special for particular festival so as to balance health. Our ancestors have designed recipes and food habits based on location and climate.
