Atta Chiroti Recipe

In this Atta Chiroti Recipe instead of fine rava , I have made with Whole Wheat flour , ghee and fine rava. Try to make this delicious , healthy and rich , atta chiroti this Diwali . Happy Diwali for all my readers.

Variations to Recipe : As I said instead of Atta / Whole wheat , fine rava can be used . Also combination of refined flour / maida and fine rava / fine semolina can also be used in combination . But with every change in ingredients , the texture of chiroti changes.

Once after deep fried , Atta Chiroti and fine rava chiroti both comes out crispy and flaky. But while serving when you dip in sweetened milk , the structure of the desert differs. With Atta Chiroti once milk is poured over chiroti , it absorbs milk and holds to the structure whereas with fine rava chiroti disintegrates . But frankly speaking , I felt structure and tasty of Atta Chiroti much better than with regular chiroti . With regular chiroti , I always feel it is more soggy with milk but with Atta Chiroti , it is perfect and tastes delicious .

Pro Tips to make Atta Chiroti :

Kneading atta to a smooth dough plays a trick for this recipe. Initially prepare a hard dough and later knead with knuckles, heels of palm till dough elasticity improves and turns soft and smooth. Next add generous amount of Saati / Spread while stacking the rotis. Also fry chiroti on a medium heat. While frying chiroti , hold a long wooden stick or rear end of a long spatula at the centre of chiroti and start pouring hot oil over the chiroti using a ladle. This makes chiroti to turn crispy and flaky evenly inside all layers . While serving , slightly crush chiroti , top with powdered sugar and pour warm sweetened milk / Basundi over it and enjoy.
