  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of ghee
  • ½ – ¾ cups of warm water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ water for sugar syrup
  • Mazola Corn Oil for frying (approximately 4 cups)


  1. Mix the ghee and flour together with your fingertips until a bread crumb-like consistency is formed.
  2. Slowly add in the water and knead into a semi hard dough. Use a light hand when bridging this dough together, you don’t want to overwork the dough. It may look a little crumbly but once you rest it, it will come together. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Once the dough is rested, roll it out into a large circle that is 1 cm thick. You can also split the dough into two sections if that is easier. Cut the circle down into 2 cm squares and rest them for another 10 minutes.
  4. Heat the Mazola Corn Oil to a medium temperature around 275°F, fry the shakkar pare for 7 to 9 minutes. Then increase the temperature to 325°F and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until they are golden brown.
  5. Once you’re done frying, set the shakkar pare aside to cool and make a chashni – sugar syrup, by simmering the sugar and water together until a one thread consistency is reached.
  6. Add the shakkar pare to the sugar syrup and mix gently until the sugar crystallizes and coats each square. Separate and dry the shakkar pare. Enjoy!
