Crispy Baked Shakarpar



Shakarpar is a delicious Indian bite-sized cookies that's a Must during festive time. This is usually deep fried in oil but as I wanted a healthier version, I made them in whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and baked them till crisp.


This is one of my favorite snacks, which were so good to eat with evening tea. I see this always in Indian stores here but didn't want to buy because of the fried version, and so one day I couldn't resist and I thought of trying them and so I baked them and they turned out perfect.

These are crunchy from outside and tender inside. this is a very easy recipe which can be made in a very less time. These will be liked by all.


Ingredients:

  1. Whole Wheat Flour- 2 Cups
  2. Melted Butter- 2 tbsp
  3. Salt- a pinch
  4. Jaggery- 1/4 Cup (powdered)
  5. Milk- 1/2 Cup

Method:

  1. Add the butter, jaggery, and milk in a sauce and heat on a low flame. Stir occasionally till the jaggery melts. Let it cool. (If you want, you can first melt the jaggery and sieve it to remove the impurities).
  2. Add the whole wheat flour, salt in another mixing bowl, gradually add the warm milk mixture and mix well to form a dough. 
  3. Allow the dough to rest for 20 minutes. Divide the dough into 4 parts. Take one dough ball at a time and roll it using a rolling pin, cut into one inch squares using a knife or a pizza cutter. Place them on a baking tray separately without touching each other using a flat spatula.
  4. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the baking tray and bake for about 9- 12 minutes. They will continue to cook after baking because of the heat. Enjoy the crispy baked mouth watering treats.
