chiroti recipe | padhir peni | chiroti sweet | chiroti with badam milk in a step by step photo and video recipe. south indian cuisine deals with many traditional desserts targeted for particular occasions. chiroti is one such sweet and is mainly made for marriage and brahmopadesham feast. the recipe as such looks simple and easy to make but certainly can be an overwhelming experience for a novice cook.

as i mentioned previously, chiroti sweet has always been considered as a premium sweet and perhaps made for big occasions. as a matter of fact, it was one of the highlights in my marriage too. i still remember bursting one of these chiroti on mine and my husband’s head during our marriage lunch. anyway, coming back to the recipe, it looks simple and easy but trusts me it can be tricky. as matter of fact, in most of the feast celebrations, there would be an experienced and dedicated chef just to make this sweet. so it is not a child’s play for sure. moreover the sweet by itself does not have any striking sweetness and taste. the combination of sweet badam milk and topping with powdered sugar makes it unique and gives the necessary taste and flavour.

furthermore, some important and critical tips and suggestions to make this chiroti recipe or padhir peni a perfect one. firstly, i have made this recipe using chiroti rava or also known as fine rava but you can also make it with plain flour. traditionally the recipe is always made with rava but it is much easier to make it with plain flour. it is much easier to make a dough with plain flour but may not offer the same taste as former. secondly, deep fry them one by one in a deep bottomed frying pan and do not overcrowd it. you may consider frying multiple only if you have a large frying pan. lastly, while rolling i have used butter, but generally, vanaspathi dalda or softened ghee is used for good flavour. but soft butter should be equally good for this recipe.
