Is Diwali ever complete without sweet or savoury shankarpalis? Why not make your own this year with these easy shankarpali recipes!
When you smell the heavenly aroma of shankarpalis at your home and neighbourhood, you can always be sure that Diwali has arrived. The delicious mouth-watering aroma eddying around the house makes you quickly grab a few. But can you really stop at a few?
I still remember going to my neighbour’s house because she made delicious Diwali faral every year. And her shankarpali recipes were so great, she received hundreds of orders to make them every year! From chaklis, chivdas to shankarpalis, everything she made was a treat to eat.
Watching her mix the ingredients with excellent accuracy and cooking them to perfection was indeed a great cooking lesson. Diwali doesn’t just call for savouring the delicious farals but it also lights the spark of entrepreneurship among women who possess the gift of making it!

So here are three delicious yet easy shankapali recipes to make the yummiest shankarpalis!
