Puri is a fried and puffed flat bread, served with a variety of side dishes. Made on special occasions and it is very popular in India. Its mouth-watering!


1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup water (lukewarm)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oil
oil for deep frying


1: Mix whole-wheat flour and salt . Add water as needed to make firm dough.

2: Oil your palm and knead the dough until it is pliable. Dough for puri should be firm but smooth.
3: Set the dough aside and cover with a damp cloth. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes or longer.

4: Divide the dough in 10 equal parts. Take couple of drops of oil on your palm and roll the dough in balls and press it between your palms.

5: Roll the dough into about 7-inch circle. If the dough is sticking to the rolling pin or rolling surface, put couple of drops of oil on the rolling pin and a couple of drops of oil on the surface.

 6: Heat the oil in a frying pan on high heat; frying pan should have atleast 1 1/2 inch of oil.

7: Place the puri in the frying pan and press it with a skimmer, puri should puff right away. Turn puri over. Puri should be light creamy brown from both sides.

8: Take the puri out and place it on paper towel to absorb the excess oil.

9: Serve puri hot or store in covered container after they cool to room temperature.

You can roll 4 to 5 purees before you start frying, but do not roll all the purees at once as they begin to dry and not puff.

Since my hubby likes crispy puri, i fried it golden brown in color.
