How to make Chiroti

  1. Make a paste of flour and ghee and keep aside.
    Note: you will use this paste later to bind layers of flatbreads.
  2. In a bowl, combine flour, ghee and salt, add water as required and knead well. Cover the dough with a muslin cloth and let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Knead the dough again and divide into two balls.
  4. Press each ball flat on your work surface and knead into thin rectangle rotis. Use some flour for dusting, if required.
  5. Glaze a roti with ghee and flour paste, place the roti over and once again apply ghee and flour paste.
  6. Roll layers of rotis into a log and cut into pieces of ½ inch each. 1 cup of flour yields about 18 – 20 pieces.
  7. Roll each piece flat and deep-fry until golden on both sides and place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  8. Dip fried pieces into sugar syrup, transfer to a greased plate and let dry for about 3hours.
  9. Serve crisp and sugary chirotis with milk.

How to make sugar syrup:

Mix the sugar, water, cardamom in a pan, bring to boil. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and simmer for 5 minutes or until string consistency is achieved.

Note: just dip a finger into the syrup and dab onto your thumb. When your fingers part, you should see the syrup stretch into a string.
