Text Box:  For the dough

  • 1 cup Maida/wheat flour/All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Ghee
  • Water , for kneading dough


For the sugar syrup

  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Elaichi (Cardamom) Powder


Sathe for biding together puris

  • 2 tablespoons Ghee
  • 1 tablespoon Rice flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon Maida/Wheat flour/All Purpose Flour


For the garnish (optional)

  • Chopped Badam/Almonds
  • Chopped Pistachios 
  • Chopped Cashews


  1. We will begin with the dough making. Mix Maida and ghee in a wide bowl, and knead into a stiff dough adding water gradually. The dough should be firm and smooth, similar to that of a puri. Cover and set aside for 15-20 minutes.
  2. To prepare sugar syrup, add sugar and water in a pan and allow boiling. Once the syrup starts boiling, reduce the flame to low and check the consistency of sugar syrup that has one string consistency. Add Elaichi /Cardamom powder and turn off heat. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix ghee, rice flour and Maida, make a thick Ghee-flour paste, and keep it aside.
  4. Now, to make the Chapatis, divide the dough in 6 equal parts and make smooth balls. Roll out each ball into a big round Chapati. Then, take 1 Chapati and apply ghee-flour mixture and spread evenly on it. Place another roti on it and apply ghee-flour paste over it. Again place the third Chapati and apply the ghee-flour paste.
  5. Then roll them up into a long roll. With the help of a knife, cut small pieces of the roll. Repeat the same process for the remaining 3 Chapatis.
  6. Then, lightly press these small-layered rolls into round puris. These are Chiroti, which are ready to be deep-fried.
  7. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan for frying the Chirotis until they turn light golden brown and crisp.
  8. Immediately soak these warm (not too hot) Chiroti into the prepared warm sugar syrup about a minute or two or until they get well coated with sugar syrup.  
  9. Take the Chirotis out and place them on a platter. Sprinkle chopped nuts over the Chirotis. Once cooled, store the Chiroti in an airtight container and serve as desired.
