Spicy Shankarpali is savoury deep-fried biscuits made with plain flour. There is a sweet version of this as well, but I personally prefer the spicy ones more. Perfect tea-time accompaniment.
As a child, I remember my mom making a large batch during festivals and school holidays and storing them in air-tight containers. They stay fresh up to 10 days. A handy snack when the kids get that sudden hunger-attack!
