Biscuit Tukdi

Biscuit tukdi/shakarpare/Shankarpali anything you call it its just like a biscuit and a yummy snack which we here at home just love it.

Ingredients for Biscuit Tukdi /Shankarpali

Recipe adapted from : Swayam paka

½ cup maida/all purpose flour
3 Tablespoon sugar
2 cardamom
2½  tsp ghee
Approx 3 tablespoon water
Oil to fry


Method:

Take the maida in a bowl . 
Finely powder the sugar * along with the cardamom  .
Add sugar to the maida.
Now melt the ghee and add it to the maida and sugar mix well.
Now add water little by little, knead it well and make hard dough and keep it aside for 3 to 4 minutes.

Heat the oil in a pan for frying on a medium heat.
Divide the prepared dough into 2 parts. Take one part and roll it into a small poori.
Smear little ghee and fold it to half and then fold it again,
Now roll it like a Roti/chapati (not too thin nor too thick) .
Cut into small diamond shapes.
Fry this in the hot oil until it turns golden brown on both sides .
Once it is done, remove from the oil and put it on a paper towel.
Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough.
Biscuit tukdi is ready to relish J.
Notes:
You can save a tbsp of powdered sugar and sprinkle over the tukdis later if you like the sweet tatse first. We love it the way I have explained J.
Happy Cooking,
