Hey it's Diwali time again!!! I think for this week everybody must be busy in preparing sweets & savory items for Diwali. With All my other varieties for Diwali, I want to add some more traditional things in my list. God Shankarpale (Sweet diamonds) is very typical recipe for Diwali in Maharashtra. This is not very time consuming and also easy to make.
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1Cup
Oil/ Ghee - 1 cup
Wheat flour/ Maida -3 cup
Fine Semolina (barik Rava) - 2 cup
Salt - a pinch.
Oil for deep fry
Heat milk, sugar and ghee in heavy bottom pan. When it started boiling , turn the heat off. When the mixture becomes warm add slat and then the flour and rava mixture little after a gap. Knead a soft dough. If the dough is sticky, you can add little flour to it. Cover and keep aside for 30 minutes. Heat oil for deep frying in Kadai. Make 5-6 equal portioned balls of the dough. Roll out a ball and make a round like thick roti. Cut it into diamond shaped pieces with pizza cutter. Deep fry this pieces in oil on medium flame till it becomes slightly golden brown. Cool down completely and store it in airtight container. It also taste good with hot tea :-)
This goes to Gayathri's 'ONLY' - Sweets & Desserts event, brain child of Pari.
