Also known as ‘poori’, this is an Indian bread eaten for breakfast, a snack or light meal, usually served with vegetable curry.
Let's start cooking!
Step 1 - Combine dough and rest
*In a bowl, add flour, water, and ¼ tsp salt and mix with your fingertip. When combined, form into a dough ball, cover and set aside to rest for 20 minutes.
Step 2 - Form puri
Coat hands with ghee to prevent dough from sticking. Knead dough until slightly springy. Roll dough into a long sausage then cut and portion into balls of about 25 g each. *Flatten or roll out into flat discs about ½ cm thick.
Step 3 - Deep-fry puri
In a pot half-filled with hot vegetable oil, place the puri in. Once it starts to float, ladle hot oil over the puri over and over again. This helps the puri to puff up. Once golden brown, remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dough.
Plate and serve!
Transfer deep-fried puri into serving baskets or dish and serve!
