  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 1 cup (or as required to make a tight and kneadable dough)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil

Preperation method:

  • Blend wheat, salt, water together in large bowl.
  • Use one hand to mix the flour and water (add water step-by-step) in a rotating motion from the center of the bowl outward, until the dough is moist enough to be gathered into a rough mass.
  • Wet hands and continue until the mixture cleans the sides of the bowl and has become a non sticky dough.
  • When the dough is kneaded, it will be elastic and silky smooth. To test the dough, press it lightly with a fingertip. If it springs back, it is ready to be rested.
  • Set aside the dough covered for 30 minutes.
  • Make this into smooth round even-sized balls.
  • Take one ball of dough and dip a corner of ball in melted ghee or oil and roll it out into 4 to 5 inches round.
  • Repeat the same process to roll out all puris.
  • Heat plenty of oil in a kadhai until very hot.
  • Put in a puri and immediately start flickering hot oil over the top of it with a spatula so that it will swell up like a ball.
  • This should take only a few seconds. Flip the puri over and cook the other side until golden brown.
  • Remove it and drain on paper towels. Repeat the procedure for all puris.
  • Serve hot. Enjoy!
