Introduction: Chirote- Crispy Snack
Chirotes are very crunchy-crispy snack item.. You can make them either salty or sweet.
Here i have made them salty.
for making them you will need
-All purpose flour 1 cup
-1/4 cup semolina (little bit crushed on mixer/grinder)
-2-3 tbsp butter
-2/3 tbsp all purpose flour (i know already i have noted all purpose flour in ingredients, but this is for making paste)
-salt (if you are making salty version)
-Powdered Sugar (if you want sweet version)
-water (for making dough)
-oil / ghee ( for frying)
take 1 cup all purpose flour, 1/4 cup crushed semolina and salt (only in salty version).
add 2 tbsp hot oil (it makes chirote crunchy)
mix it with spoon
then add water
make a smooth dough, consistency should be such that you should be able to roll it with rolling pin.
make 7 small equal parts of that dough. in 4 parts add pink color, in 2 parts add green color and in remaining 1 part add yellow food color.
mixing food color in dough evenly is little tricky part.
then keep this dough in plastic wrap for 2 hours.
make a paste of 2-3 tbsp room temp. butter and 2/3 tbsp of all purpose flour ( you may use rice flour or corn flour)
after 2 hrs..
roll yellow dough with the help of rolling pin
when it is sufficiently flattened apply paste on entire area as shown in picture.
then make a roll of it.
now roll 4 pink dough balls using rolling pin..
place 1 pink flattened bread and add paste on it.
place another pink flattened bread on top of it.
again apply paste on it. n put another pink flattened bread on it.
repeat procedure.. on all 4 pink flattened breads.
on forth one also apply paste.
on this pink flattened bread pile keep yellow rolled bread.
and roll entire bread as shown in picture
roll green dough ball using rolling pin
here also do green flatten bread + paste + green flatten bread + paste
as we did with pink ones
then on this put pink roll
and roll entire bread
-if you don't want to follow concentric color pattern you may put these colored flattened bread one on another with paste in between.and then make roll of it.
cut small pieces form the roll.
using rolling pin slightly flatten them
then fry them in oil.. ( you may fry them in ghee)
here chirotes are ready (salty version)
for sweet chirotes- when fried chirotes are cooled, dip them into powdered sugar and cover them with powdered sugar..
you may also dip them in sugar syrup
