Karnataka style shankar poli or shankar pali recipe explained with step by step pictures. This is an authentic and traditional snacks recipe from Karnataka. shankar poli or shankar pali is prepared using maida or all purpose flour, ghee and salt. Here I have explained both sweet and spicy versions. For sweet version little sugar is added and for spicy version red chili powder is added.
Shankar poli or shankar pali is popular by different names in Karnataka. Malnad side it is familiar by name shankar pole, Mangalore side it is familiar by name thukudi and some people will call it by name shankar pali. In north India it is familiar by name shakkar pare (sweet) and namak pare (salt). But they make it thick and Karnataka style shankar pali will be very thin and crispy.
This recipe is very similar to badam puri, suruli puriand badusha (saat) recipes. Only the shapes are different. The best part with this recipe is you can make it either sweet or spicy or mild sweet. Optionally you can add either sesame seeds or carom seeds.
This is a very old and very common recipe in my family. Prepared quite often and everyone likes it. This recipe makes use of maida or all purpose flour. You can replace it by wheat flour but to get good taste and texture, I would suggest using maida flour. My Mother in law prepares shankar pali with different ingredients. She uses rice flour and very less maida. I will share that recipe soon.
