chiroti recipe

Chiroti recipe explained with step by step pictures and a quick video. This is an authentic and traditional Karnataka style sweet recipe. Chiroti is prepared using maida or all purpose flour, chiroti rava, ghee and sugar. Chiroti is also familiar by name chirote, penori and padiru peni. We can call it as Indian pastry.

I have posted many sweet recipes on this website that are quite similar to this chiroti. This recipe is very similar to badam puri, suruli puri and badusha (saat) recipes.

Chiroti is very popular in Karnataka. Chiroti is prepared on special occasions and events. Chiroti is prepared during Deepavali festival as well. In Karnataka, chiroti is served with sweetened milk or badam milk. Personally I do not like this sweet.. I can have one with sugar powder sprinkled and one more with milk..that's it. But I know there are several chiroti fans over here and this recipe is requested by one of the dear reader of our website. So happily posting this recipe..Hope you all enjoy it.

Making chiroti involves detailed process.. So I have a made a quick video on this. I have embedded the video below. Kindly have a look.
