Pakatil Chirota (crisps dipped in sugar syrup)

This is a Maharashtrian dishand my all time favourite. Here is the recipe for you.

You will need:

2 cups plain flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp smoking hot ghee(clarified butter)

2 cups ghee for frying

Beat the ghee and salt together for 2 minutes. Then add the flour and make a nice firm dough.

Let it rest.

For the filling:

4 tbsp ghee

3 tbsp powdered sugar

Mix the above ingredients together.

Making the rotis:

Rice flour for dusting.

Make equal sized rotis of the dough. Sparingly dust the work surface with the rice flour.

Now take the first roti spread the sugar mixture on it. Place another roti on it and do the same.

After arranging four rotis one on top of the other fold it to make a rectangle while brushing the

sugar mixture inside. .


Now cut equal size squares and deep fry it in ghee. They should rise and become a little bigger in size. Keep aside.

For the sugar syrup:

2 cups of sugar


Bring to a boil the water and sugar and simmer it until you get a one thread consistency.

Tip: Place a drop of the syrup between your fingers and if a thread forms then the syrup is ready.

Now soak the chirotas in the syrup for about a minute.

Remove it from the syrup and dust it with powdered sugar.
