Shankarpali is a sweet and crispy, deep-fried, diamond-shaped, Indian cookie. Since they are bite-sized they make a great snack. In fact, these are really hard to resist once you start munching on them.
Continuing with my series of traditional Goan Christmas sweets here on the blog, let’s talk about these diamond-shaped cookies! Shankapali is yet another treat that’s prepared during festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali and Christmas. It also happens to be one of the things that are served in the Kuswar i.e Goan Christmas sweet platter distributed to family and friends. But really, these can be prepared any time of the year, for they are perfect to snack on if you aren’t counting calories 😀
