This easy to make crispy delicious puri or poori is delicious served with curries or syrup.

1 cup whole wheat atta flour

1/2 cup flour
2 tsp rice flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ajwain or carom seeds optional
1 to 2 tsp oil
oil for frying 1"

Knead all the ingredients together using little bit of water at a time to make a smooth ball. Divide into small balls and roll it thin without dents.

Heat oil in high heat and fry puris one at a time. When puri is put into the oil it will puff up. Pour oil on top or press lightly and it will puff up. Turn the other side and fry till the puri is golden brown this will only take a minute or two. Remove from oil and put into a paper towel to absorb oil.

  1. I use ghee to fry these puffy fellows; did you use normal cooking oil?

  2. As usual, picture perfect ... the puri look wonderful!

  3. Would these be the same as papadums? I've never made either but they look really similar and the spices look like what I've tasted in a papadum. If not, how are they different? They sure look tasty!

  4. I agree with Kate..picture perfect..I love this!

  5. I love how perfectly puffed they are - just singing of its goodness.

  6. Something good I usually fry in vegetable oil ghee is too costly here
    Melissa puri and papadums are different papadums are sold in Indian stores which can be fried and can also be microwaved

  7. One of my friend's mom always makes me fresh puri! YUM!

  8. wonderful! So puffed and gorgeous, great job!

  9. I've never heard of puri before but it looks really cool.

  10. Yep right, adding ajwain gives that extra punch to the puris. Great Recipe!
