Ingredients to make Chirota

  • Maida – 300 gms .
  • Ghee – 3 tbsp
  • Aararoot – 3 tbsp
  • Powder sugar for dusting
  • Oil to fry

How to make Chirota

  1. Heat 3 tbsp oil and pour it over the maida, mix well and make a dough.(Note that the dough should be more harder than a roti dough.)
  2. Let the dough rest for half an hour. Meanwhile take the ghee in a plate and whip it with your hand till it becomes light, then slowly add the aararoot to it and form a semi solid paste.
  3. Make 6 portions of the dough and knead with your hands till it becomes soft. Now roll a thin roti and put in the ghee paste, spread it evenly on the entire roti.
  4. Roll the second roti and put it on top of the rolled roti, spread the paste on top of this as well. Finally roll a third roti and put it on top of the second one, once again spread the paste evenly on this.
  5. Now press all the three rotis from the sides and roll them tightly. You will now have a nice long roll, now cut 1/2 “ pieces of it
  6. You will have nearly 14-16 pieces out of one roll. Now take one piece and flatten it with your palm, roll it into the shape of a small puri.
  7. Heat oil in a kadai and fry this puri on a slow flame, while it is frying continue sprinkling hot oil on top of this chirota, the layers will come up nicely. Make sure to fry it nicely from both sides.
  8. Keep these chirotas on paper overnight to drain the excess oil.
  9. In the morning, sprinkle some powdered sugar on the layers of Chirotas and enjoy!
