Hello everyone! I’m Aarti Madan and you’re welcome to my channel. Today, we’re making Shakarpara recipe with a healthy twist. Instead of Refined Flour (Maida), we’ll be using Whole Wheat Flour (Atta). During Diwali, people do not care much about diet. Which is understandable as it comes just once a year. But you can have these Shakarparas without any guilt as we’re using Whole Wheat Flour (Atta). So let’s get started with the recipe. We’ll need Wheat Flour (Atta), Sugar, Water, Semolina (Suji), and Clarified Butter (Ghee). In a pan add Sugar and Water. We just need to dissolve them and not make a sugar syrup. Heating will aid in quick dissolution. It’s ready now. So we’ll let it cool down. In a bowl, add Whole Wheat Flour (Atta) Next, add Semolina (Suji). This makes your Shakarparas crunchy. We’ll also add Clarified Butter (Ghee) Mix it well. I’d not recommend Oil as it won’t give you the crunchy bite. You can see it’s forming a ball-type structure. This means, the Ghee’s quantity is enough. Now we’ll add the sugar water mixture to it. Knead into a dough that is neither too hard nor too soft. So add Water gradually and knead it. The dough should have the consistency of Pooris. Knead it well. If you make them, do upload on Instagram using #AartiMadan. Do follow me there as well for regular food-related updates. After resting for 30 mins, it’s become little hard. So we’ll add 1 tablespoon water to it. You may add lukewarm water too. We’ll knead it some more to make it soft. If your dough is soft after 30 mins of rest, you can skip this step. It also depends on the texture of the Flour used. The dough is ready. We’ll divide it into 3 equal parts for easy rolling. Make a log and then you can divide it into 3 parts. Earlier I had made Shakarparas with Refined Flour (Maida) and the link is in the description below. You all had loved it and one of the popular ask was to make it with Whole Wheat Flour, so I’m making this recipe today. Roll it well. Now cut it into diamond or square shapes. I prefer square shape that too in small size as people may prefer only a small bite. Remove the excess part from the edges. Don’t discard them. Instead, add them back to the other dough. Let me show you how thick the Shakarparas need to be. Now we heat Oil in a pan on medium flame. I will put some dough and test. You can see it’s hot enough. We’ll now add Shakarparas using a deep-fry strainer to avoid any splashes. You can add it directly if you want. Do note that I’ve turned the heat to low. Do not fry it on high heat otherwise it will remain uncooked from inside. So first heat the oil on medium, then bring it to low before adding the Shakarparas. We’ll not stir it for the next 2 mins. After 2 mins, you can stir and see they’re frying well. It takes time to fry so you’ll need to be patient with them. After 4-5 mins, you’ll notice that it’s changing its colour. After 8-9 mins, you’ll see that it’s got a perfect golden colour. Transfer the Shakarparas onto a tissue paper. The Wheat Flour Shakarparas are ready now. They’re thick and have got good layers of crunch. Do enjoy them this festive season. I hope you liked these Wheat Flour Shakarparas with a healthy twist.
