Its Diwali time, which means our house gets into the Diwali snacks preparation phase. One of the savory snacks we make every year is the Shankarpali, also called Shankarpara, Namkeen, Tukdi and many other terms across the country. Shankarpali is a deep fried snack in the shape of a diamond. Shankarpali is made from a dough of ghee, maida, semolina and salt. The mixture is made into dough and then mechanically cut into diamond shaped units which are deep fried in Ghee or Butter.
