Ingredients

Green paste- Methi/fenugreek leaves, green chilies, anardana(dried pomegranate seeds)- It has a sweet, sour, and slightly fruity flavor, red chili powder, salt, amchur powder(dry mango powder), and water.

Flour- Puris requires whole wheat flour also known as gehu ka aata in Hindi. Also requires little extra flour while rolling the puris just to dust the dough so that it does not stick and roll out smoothly.

Other- Oil to fry.

In a big bowl add wheat flour and green methi paste. Mix it and knead it into a dough with the help of your hand or dough maker. If required you can add little water as I added around 1/2 cup of water.

(Note– The dough should have medium consistency which is neither hard nor too soft)

At this stage, if you want to rest the dough or want to make the puri later then store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Divide the dough into small balls then flatten each dough ball with the help of your palms and dust it with wheat flour.

Roll the dough into a circle with the help of a rolling pin. Roll it evenly, it should neither be thick nor thin. 1/4 inch thick is fine.

Now, Deep fry the puris in medium-hot refined oil or canola oil. Press the puri gently with the help of a ladle and it will puff up. It puffs after 10 to 12 seconds after hitting the oil. Fry it until both sides turn golden brown in color.

(Note– Keep adjusting the flame from low to medium to maintain the right level of heat)

Drain off the excess oil and transfer the puri to absorbent paper.

It’s ready to serve. Serve it immediately with aloo curry, aloo sabzi, coriander chutney, and laccha pyaz salad.

Top Tips

  • Use fresh methi leaves.
  • The dough should not be too soft or too hard. If the dough is soft you won’t be able to roll it easily, If it is hard pooris will become hard after frying. If required you can add little water or add little flour if the dough is too soft or wet.
  • You can also add little coriander leaves, mint leaves, or ginger to the methi mixture for extra flavor.
  • Fry it in medium hot oil. If the oil is very hot the puri will burn and remain uncooked. So frying the puris at the right temperature is very important.
