Cornmeal Shakkarpara/ Cornmeal Jaggery Biscuits

Its been a while i have prepared my snacks as deep fried, when i saw these biscuits at Jag's space i couldnt stop myself making these beauties with a combination of cornmeal and whole wheat flour.These biscuits are highly addictive,delicious and super crispy. These shakkarparas are very quick to make and definitely one of the easy breezy Indian snacks we have.Eventhough these biscuits are deep fried, they are somewat healthy coz of the addition of wholewheat flour,cornmeal and the roasted grounded sesame seeds in it.

I prepared a medium box of these addictive jaggery biscuits, needless to say that they vanished within few minutes. If you make them at home, am damn sure that you wont stop munching them urselves,yep they are dangerously addictive.These biscuits goes to Kalyani's Magic Mingle#8.


1cup Whole wheat flour
1/2cup Yellow cornmeal (fine quality)
1/3cup Roasted sesame seeds (grounded as coarse powder)
1cup Grated jaggery
1tsp Cardamom powder
1/4tsp Baking soda
Oil
All purpose flour (for dusting)

Make a thick syrup with grated jaggery and water by heating them together, strain this syrup and keep aside.

Now take the whole wheat flour,yellow cornmeal,grounded sesame seeds,cardamom powder, baking soda together in a bowl, add gradually the jaggery syrup and turn them as stiff and soft dough.

Dust the dough with enough flour and roll as medium thick circles. Cut this rolled dough as diamond shaped medium sized pieces with a knife.Repeat until the dough gets finished.

Meanwhile heat the oil for deep frying. Once the oil gets hot,put the flame in simmer, drop gently the diamond shaped biscuits and fry them until they gets brown.

Enjoy it with your favourite drink for your evening snacks.
