If you’re a fan of both Indian cuisine and sweet treats, you definitely need to try delicious Shakarpara. These are incredibly tasty, fragrant sweet crackers with shredded coconut. One can only admire the cuisine which combines flour, semolina and sugar so successfully and in so many different ways.

The dessert that we are going to make today is often confused with Turkish sekerpare cookies. People often serve them at resort hotels, but the two recipes are completely different.

Steps

1
Done

Mix the flour with semolina. Pour in 2 tbsp of oil, ½ cup (100 ml) of water and knead soft dough. Roll it into a ball, cover with foil and set aside for 30 minutes in a warm place.

2
Done

Make the syrup. Mix sugar and ½ cup (100 ml) of water in a saucepan, cook while stirring, until it starts to boil. Then pour in shredded coconut and cardamom, mix and remove from heat.

3
Done

Roll the dough into a thin layer, poke the entire surface with a fork and cut the layer into small pieces (traditionally squares or diamonds).

4
Done

Deep-fry slices of dough several pieces at a time.

5
Done

Put your crackers in a saucepan with the syrup and mix gently so that each piece is covered with coconut glaze. Then put the dessert on a baking sheet and wait until it dries a little. Done!

The success of cooking shakarpara is determined by how crispy the dessert turned out. India is a country of spices, so do not be surprised if you find a spicy snack option for this delicacy. Sugar in such cases is replaced with salt, red pepper and other spices. If you have long been looking for an elegant and quick dessert or snack recipe for the whole family, this is what you need.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility
but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks
