Assemble all the ingredients. In a pan add saunf and dry roast until light brown in color. Set it aside.
Sift flour and baking soda together. Add roasted saunf and pour ghee in the center.
Gradually work on the flour till mixture is crumbly. Use fingertips to rub ghee evenly into flour.

Heat oil/ghee in a kadai. Make a large ball out of the dough and roll it into a thick chapati.

Deep fry until crisp and dark brown in color.
All fried, crisp and golden paras...
Mix gur and water in a separate pan.
Bring it to a boil.
Gur/jaggery burns very fast, so do not leave the syrup unattended and keep stirring it continuously.
Till it is reduced to half its quantity. Remove from flame...
Mix in fried para(s) and keep mixing..
Until all the para(s) are coated in gur syrup.
Spread them on big plate and allow them to cool down completely.
Since the gurparas are sticky, I like to toss all the para(s) in dry gur powder.
Dust the extra gur and store them in an air-tight container at room temperature.
