Crispy ‘Mango’paras {Recipe}

Taking inspiration from the Mango season, 10438851_1515455052011291_976301991_nReena converted the old childhood favorite Shakkarparas into ‘Mango’paras…



Maida/Plain Flour, 1 ½ cups
Suji/Semolina , 2 tbsp
Mango Pulp, ½  cup
Powdered Sugar, 3 to 4 tbsp (or according to taste)
Poppy Seeds, 1 tsp
Sesame seeds,1 tsp
Ghee,3 tbsp
Oil for deep frying


Combine the mango puree, powdered sugar, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, maida, suji and melted ghee in a big bowl. Mix well and make a soft dough.

Divide the dough into small balls. Using a rolling pin, roll them out thinly. Use a little maida for dusting if required.

Cut into desired shapes (typically cut into diamond shapes) and deep fry in hot oil on low flame till light golden brown.

Remove with a slotted spoon onto paper napkins.

Allow to cool completely before storing in airtight containers.
