Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
1 cup maida/all purpose flour
3 tablespoon castor sugar/powdered sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoon butter
½ cup milk
5 tablespoon butter-to apply on rolls
For chocolate sauce
3 teaspoon drinking chocolate
3 teaspoon cocoa powder
4 teaspoon sugar
2-3 tablespoon milk
Take maida, add sugar, baking powder, baking soda, butter and mix it well. Add milk and knead dough. Keep it aside for 30 minutes.
You can use readymade chocolate sauce or mix the above mentioned ingredients and cook it on the gas stove for about 1-2 minutes, till it thickens. Keep it aside.
Take dough and make 4 to 5 big balls. Take one ball and roll the thin roti of about 9-10 diameter. Apply butter/ghee(clarified butter) on both the sides. Start from the edge and roll it tightly to make a roll. Take another ball and roll the roti. Same way apply butter on both the sides. Take first roll and put it on the edge of the second roti. Again roll the second roti on top of the first roll. Same way continue with all the rolls. Make a big log like roll. Cut the log into ½ to ¾ inch small rolls.
Take one roll, slightly press it down from between with the fingers to make a hollow hole. Pour about 1-2 teaspoon chocolate sauce, press and cover the edges. Grease the puff with butter/ghee.
Prepare all the puffs. Take baking tray, sprinkle some flour and arrange all the puffs.
Preheat oven. Bake the puffs at 180 degree C for 15 minutes on one side. Take out the tray, change the side and again bake it for 15 minutes on the other side, or till it turns light brown.
Instead of dark chocolate you can even use white chocolate or jam.
Dust the puffs with castor sugar on top and serve it. Let it cool and store it in an air tight container.
