Spicy Shankarpali

The festival of lights Diwali is just over. Diwali means firecrackers, lamps, rangoli and lots of sweets and snacks. For all the Maharashtrians most enjoyable part of Diwali is Faral!!! This year for the first time I tried doing Faral dishes on my own and to my surprise I enjoyed it alot :) Spicy shankarpali was the first dish which I tried and it came out very well in the first try itself!!


2 cup Maida
2 tsp Rice floor
1 tsp crushed jeera
2 tsp hot oil plus oil for frying
1-2 tsp chilly powder (as required)
Salt as per taste


1. Mix all the dry ingredients.
2. Put 2 tsp hot oil on it and spread so that it covers all the maida.
3. Add water little by little and knead dough. Make sure that you make tight dough with minimum quantity of water.
4. Keep the dough for 30 mins.
5. Roll the dough in the shape of chapati and cut in the shape of rhombus. If you are in India you can easily get cutter for this or you can use Pizza cutter also.
6. Heat oil in kadhai for frying. When the oil is hot fry shankarpali on low to medium heat till they turn golden brown.

Enjoy this wonderful snack with hot tea in evening :)
