Prep time: 10 – 15 mins
Cooking time: 1 hour
- 1 cup of plain flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- About ½ cup water (or as much needed to make a pliable dough)
- Makes 6 – 8
- Stir the flour and salt in a bowl
- Add water little by little to form a dough
- Until it comes together into a pliable dough. You can also add 1 tbsp oil. The final consistency should not be too tight (dry) or too soft (wet).
- Knead it well until smooth and very slightly sticky.
- Let it rest for a while before rolling out.
- Make small balls and roll them out like pancakes of ½ cm thickness.
- In a deep dish, heat oil for deep frying.
- Do the oil-temperature test to see if it is ready. Tips: Drop a small piece of dough into the oil. The dough should fry up immediately and come to the surface. You know the oil is not hot enough when the puri does not puff up, is flat and instead is soaking up oil.
- Now drop the puri into the oil.
- While the puri is slowly coming to the surface, make sure to keep ladling in the hot oil on the surface.
- This helps the puri to puff up.
- Turn it so that it gets evenly golden yellow
- Place it on a paper towel to drain off any oil.
