This wheat flour shakarpara recipe is very popular sweet Indian crispy snacks and is mostly made during festivals like Diwali or Holi. It is also known as shakarpali or khurma.

This sweet snacks is very simple to make and you can make few days before Diwali or any special occasion and offer it to your guest or have it as a snacks.

Traditionally shakarpara is made with all purpose flour (maida) and sugar syrup is coated over it. Wheat flour is considered healthier option than all purpose flour but it’s your choice you can use any one of the flour.

I find this recipe very easy because it doesn’t requires sugar coating. It starts with dough, ends after frying and requires very less effort.

You can also checkout savoury version of it: semolina namakpara.
