Ingredients to make Apple Cinnamon Chimichangas

  • For the tortillas:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp veg shortening or olive oil or refined oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup warm water
  • For the stuffing:
  • 3 big apples, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup oil for frying
  • 2-3 tbsp Powdered Cinnamon sugar for dusting

How to make Apple Cinnamon Chimichangas

  1. For the tortillas. Sift the flour,baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix the shortening or oil with your fingertips to combine. Add the warm water gradually and work into a soft dough, cover and keep for 30 minutes.
  2. Roll out 8 medium sized round tortillas with the dough and cook them on a griddle till brown spots appear. Cover the dough with a damp tea towel as you cook the tortillas.
  3. For the apple filling saute the chopped apples in butter for few minutes till they become little soft.
  4. Add the sugar and cinnamon and let it cook for 3-4 minutes till the sugar is caramelised and the mixtures becomes little saucy.
  5. For the Chimichangas, in a tortilla lay out enough filling so that you can fold it into a burrito easily.
  6. Fold opposite sides over the filling and roll up from the bottom like a burrito.
  7. Place with the seam side down in a fry pan with pre heated oil, fry on a low flame, turn the other side when golden brown. (I shallow fried it with 3-4 tbsp of oil).
  8. Alternately brush with melted butter and bake at 200 degree centigrade for 20 minutes or till golden brown.
  9. Dab the extra oil with a tissue from the fried chimichangas and dust with powdered cinnamon and sugar.
  10. Cut into halves and serve hot with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

My Tip:

Don't overcook the tortillas as they will become dry and butter them and wrap them in a tea towel as you cook the other tortillas.
