Chap shoro/shuro is originally cooked on firewood, chap refers to the meat and shoro/shuro is the resulting product which is formed of ground meat and dough. Here I’m demonstrating how you can make it while living in a flat. The resulting chap shuro is juicy and delicious. Guro is a place on the way to Hunza which is famous for chap shuro. My observations say that the steamed and small version of chap shuro is dumpling and the deep fried version of chap shuro is kachori.
This recipefor 2 serving calls for the following ingredients
Hand ground meat 1/2kg
Onion 1 large
Tomatoes 1 cup
Ginger 1 tbsp
Coriander 1 /2 cup
Salt to taste
Chili flakes 1 tsp
Water ½ cup
Cooking oil 4 tbsp
Ingredients for the shoro wraps:
Wheat flour 2 cups
Salt 1 pinch
Water to make soft dough
To a pan add cooking oil and saute’ the ginger garlic. When these aromatics infuses add the hand ground meat and fry till the juices are gone. Then add chili flakes, salt to taste tomatoes and give it a good stir.after a minute add some water and cover the lid. When the tomatoes are done add onions and coriander and mix well and again cover the lid for a good five minutes while keeping the heat on low. The onion will soften up and the oil will start separating from the meat. At this point turn off the gas and let the mixture cool down while you are preparing the dough for the shoro wraps.
Dough Kneading for shoro wraps:
To a bowl add 2 cups of wheat flour and a pinch of salt. Knead the mixture with cold water to make a soft dough and then divide the dough to equal parts and roll with a rolling pin to form circular sheets ( check the video on making Hunza Flatbread).
Putting together wraps and the Mixture:
There are two ways of putting together this chap shuro
#1: Put the filling on the top of a circular wrap and then take another wrap and put that over the filling and close the edges.cook on a pan on stove top. Since the filling is already cooked .you only need is to make the wrapping nice brown and crisp.
#2. Take a single wrapping sheet and put the filling on it and fold it half way through ,making it as if it is half a circle.cook it the same way on the stove top.
