Shankar Poli

Shankar poli is a very easy South Indian snack and kids love them as they are a crunchy finger foods and tastes like chips.It is made in sweet and salty versions. I have made both and both the recipes are here.I am still not sure why this kinda name for a snack.

Ingredients:

(Sweet)

1cup All purpose flour/Maida
1/2cup Powdered/confectioners Sugar
a pinch cardamom powder
1tsp Hot ghee/butter/Oil
1.5cups Oil for deep frying

(Salty)

1cup All purpose flour/Maida
3/4tsp salt
1/2tsp Ajwain/Oma seeds/cumin seeds
1tsp Pepper powder
1tsp Hot ghee/butter/Oil
1.5cups Oil for deep frying

Method:

Mix maida,sugar,cardamom powder and a spoon of ghee and make a soft dough with required amount of water and knead it well and keep aside.Do the same way for the salty dough too.Roll the dough as thin as possible with a rolling pin and cut it into diamonds with a knife or pizza cutter and deep fry them in hot oil till they are golden brown.Store them in an airtight container.Its so easy and ready to munch.

Note:Fry the sweet shankar poli first and then the salty one,so the oil doesnot get spoiled.Sweet usually burns fast so keep the flame in the medium low.
