Shakarpara Recipe - Fried Maida Biscuits Recipe

I would say that this recipe will be a easy but tasty snack which you can make for diwali..I made it in minutes and it tasted divine..I have already shared a different version of diamond cuts in my blog, this is a completely different one, much more thicker and very buttery. Great with a cup of tea..

  1. Can we replace maida with atta/wheat flour????

  2. Can these be baked?

  3. I am not having baking soda what is the substitute for that.

  4. Sorry to say that the recipe did not turn good as expected. Followed the recipe exactly. However, the dough just disintegrated leaving a big mess when fried. Not sure what went wrong.
