How to Make Chiroti

published by K.Reshma on Oct 25, 2009

This is a sweet snack made by South Indians.

Ingredients

  • Refined flour – 1 cup
  • Rice flour – 2 tsp
  • Vanaspati – 2 tsp
  • Salt – a pinch of
  • Powdered sugar – ¾ cup
  • Cardamom powder – ½ tsp
  • Ghee – 1 tsp

Method

  1. Mix together flour, salt and vanaspati with sufficient water to make dough and keep it aside for 1 hour.
  2. Mix powdered sugar and cardamom and keep it aside.
  3. Make small 6 to 7 rotis from the dough. Keep one on a flat board, apply little ghee on it and sprinkle ¼ tsp of refined flour on it. Make another roti, keep it on the first one, and repeat the procedure. Now roll all these rotis into a tight roll without applying any pressure. Roll from the centre to the side, so that all the layers are clearly visible.
  4. Heat vanaspati in a pan, and deep fry this chirotis on a low flame, while frying slightly press the chirotis on the layers so as to make the layers separate. Remove from fire and place it on tissue paper. Spread the sugar mixture on the fried chiroti and store in a dry container. It will remain good for at least 15 days.

    Oh I love this stuff! I had it like 3 times in my entire life on my travels to India and it is DELICIOUS… Thanks a lot for the recipe but might be worth mentioning what vanaspati is because I don’t know what it is!
