CHIROTI/ PENI

Ingredients:-----
Maida --- 1/2 cup
Chiroti rava(fine samolina) --- 1/2 cup
Salt a pinch
Ghee -- 2 tab sp
oil for deep frying
Sugar powder -- 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder --1/2 tea sp
Rice flour ---2 tea sp
ghee -- 2 tab sp

METHOD:-----
Mix flour,rava, and first 2tab sp ghee and rud with hand to make abread crumbs like flour then add sufficient water and make a dough like puri dough.And leave it for 1/2 hour.
Make a paste with rice flour and second 2 tab sp ghee and keep a side.
Make 7small ball s with the dough and roll out in to thin chapathi s.
Keep one chapathi on a flat bord and apply rice and ghee mixture,and keep the next chapathi on the first one.This should not cover the first one(see my pic on the top).do the procedure with all 7 chapathi s.

Roll the chapathi s like mat in to atight roll dont apply pressure.And cut the roll in to 2 inch pieces.


Rolleach pieces in to small circles roll from center to the side,dont give pressure.The layers should be visible.
Deep fry the chiroti s in a hot oil(normaly they fry them in ghee or vanaspathi that will give a divine taste and nice aroma but here i didn't use ghee for frying allredy i used a lot of ghee in this so If you wnat you can fry themin ghee or vanaspathi.)
Fry in a low flame while frying push the chiroti to down in the oil for a second this will give more layers visible.
Take out from the oil and spread sugar and cardamom mixture.
store in a airtight container. This will stay for atleast 10 - 15 days
This will also serve with Badam milk .
