Mix sugar in warm water for a few minutes or until the sugar dissolves.
Add the maida (all-purpose flour), oil, salt to a large bowl. Mix using one hand such that the oil gets completely mixed in the dough. Keep mixing for 1-2 minutes. Check that the dough holds its shape when taken in hand.
Now add the sugar water to flour and mix to make a stiff dough (similar to puri). Add minimum additional water to make the dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 15 minutes.
Now divide the dough into 3 parts and make balls. Roll out the dough thick, like a paratha. Cut into diamond or square shapes.
Separate each square and keep aside in a plate. It is okay to keep the squares on top of each other. They will easily separate when frying.
In a kadai/wok, heat the oil on medium-high flame. Then Reduce the flame to medium. Dip the cut dough pieces in the hot oil. Fry while stirring frequently till the shake pare turn golden brown
Take them out and lay them on a kitchen towel. When completely cool, serve or store them in an airtight container.
