  • ½ - ¾ cup water or according to need
  • Oil for deep frying
Instructions ( 1 cup = 250 ml, 1 tbsp = 15 ml, 1 tsp = 5 ml)
  1. Take whole wheat flour ( roti or chapati aata ) in a deep bowl.
  2. Add all dry spices and salt. Coarsely grind cumin seeds, sesame seeds and carom seeds. Add it into flour.
  3. Add oil and warm ghee.
  4. Mix well. Rub the flour between your palms properly.
  5. Knead a tight dough using water. Add water step by step and knead well for 4 – 5 minutes.
  6. Keep it aside for 20 – 25 minutes.
  7. Divide the masala puri dough into 80 -90 equal parts.
  8. Roll the puri into circle of 3 cm diameter and 2 mm width. Do not roll thin puries. If your puri will be thin it will get hard. For crispy and flaky puri , puri should be enough thick.
  9. Pork them using knife.
  10. Heat the oil in a deep kadai.
  11. Fry 12 – 15 puri at a time on medium slow flame. While you are adding puri into kadai at that time keep flame on high for 2 minutes only. This will help puri to get bubbles on its crust.
  12. Flip them in between for 3 to 4 times.
  13. When it starts to get pink color on crust take it out.
  14. If puri will be cooked perfectly, they will make noise while you are transforming them into plat.

  16. Store them into air tight container.
