1. Take flour into a bowl and add semolina, ghee and sugar into it. Mix all the ingredients well.
2. Now, add water as per needed to make the dough. Knead it well and make the dough soft and firm.
3. Divide it into two equal parts and cover it with a clean cotton cloth.
4. After a few minutes, take a ball from the dough and roll it into a thick paratha.
5. Now, cut the paratha horizontally and vertically to get the diamond shaped pieces.
6. Then, heat some oil in a pan.
7. Add those small pieces into the oil and deep fry them. Keep the flame on a medium temperature.
8. Don't pour all the pieces together in the kadai. There should be enough space for the frying of the shakkar pare.

Your shakkar pare is ready to be served.
Note: You should pour the sugar syrup when hot on the shakkar pare, otherwise it may crystallize.
