Sweet Shankarpali - Shakarpara - Shakarpare

Shankarpali is a widely popular snack in India and traditionally made as part of the Diwali Faral. For those who are new to the concept of Faral - it basically comprises of sweet and savory treats made during Diwali festival. Shankarpali can be made in two forms - sweet and savory (both equally addictive). But for this post I'll be sharing the recipe for sweet Shankarpali also known as Shakarpara.

Baigan Bharta - Punjabi Baingan Bharta - Oven Roasted Eggplant Recipe

Baingan Bharta (Spicy Smoked Eggplant) is a North Indian recipe made using roasted and mashed eggplant that is cooked with onion, tomato, ginger and Indian spices. Traditionally the eggplant is roasted over charcoal or direct fire to give it a smoky flavor. But you can also grill the eggplant in an oven like I did for this recipe. Its much neater and clean process that way. This dish can be served with Roti/Chapati/Naan or any Indian bread of your choice.
