Whats the difference between chiroti and Peni?

I haven't prepared Chiroti.
I think for chiroti they don't put it in sugar syrup.

Whats the taste difference between Badam puri and peni? Both ingredients look the same.Any idea???
As I said tried your Badam puri recipe and it was perfect!! Peni is my next agenda :)

Thanks for the recipes

Actually no much difference between Padar Peni and Badam Puri. Badam Puri has Lavanga(Cloves) flavor and Padar Peni has more layers.

You can also prepare one more variation of padar penis, ie just rolling them in powdered sugar and cardamom mix instead of dipping them in sugar syrup.
