Puri (Fried Flour Flat Breads)


2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup lukewarm water
1 Pinch of salt

Oil for deep frying


Knead flour with water into slightly sticky dough.

2 Rest and cover loosely for 15 minutes.
3 Break off golf ball-sized pieces.
4 Dip in the flour, and roll out as Tortilla or Roti.
5 Heat the oil in wok or Karahi.
6 Deep fry puri until slightly brown. (To puff Puri, press down puris lightly into the oil when frying.)
7 Drain excessive oil and serve hot with any curried vegetable especially Chana.
The rolling out bread into perfect circular shape will be challenge at first. However, this skill can not be taught and only become better with practice.
