Chirote is a yummy flaky sweet. A few years back I was at my mom’s place and she had prepared this sweet. We all had finished the 1st batch as soon as she had prepared it. I never thought of preparing it, but this Diwali, had this strong craving.. so asked mom and made this yumm and lovely sweet.

Chirote is high on calories. . But Diwali isn’t a time for diets. . Just make this and enjoy with family… kids will surely love it.

Ingredients

1. Maida  1 and 1/4th cup for dough  plus 3 to 4 tsp for spreading in between layers.
2. Ghee 2 to 3 tbsp for kneading. 2 to 3 tbsp for making paste..plus for frying chirote
3. Water for kneading dough

Method
1. Take 1 and 1/4th cup Maida add 2 to 3 tbsp ghee and crumble the dough. Then add little water at a time and knead into a stiff dough, similar to puri dough.

2. Cover and set aside the dough till you prepare other things needed to make the dish.

3.  Powder 1/2 cup sugar and keep aside.

4.  Take the remaining Maida and mix ghee to it and make a paste. We will use this to apply in between layers of roti.
