Crispy fried flat bread made with whole wheat flour. Best accompanied with potato curry.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tablespoons clarified butter or vegetable oil
- 3 pinches salt
- Oil for frying
Mix flour and salt. Add water little by little to make a hard dough. Add 2 tablespoons oil and knead. Cover and let it settle for 10 minutes.
Knead it once more into a dough.
Make smaller doughs from the big dough. The dough for the puri are smaller than those for chapati.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough. Instead of using dry flour to keep it from getting sticky, use oil.
Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan or wok. Deep fry the rolled out doughs one at a time till they turn golden brown.
Serve hot with potato curry!
