How to make puri for chaat(Chaat Puri)

I tried making puris when I made pani puri which was a different recipe. Last weekend when I planned to make chats I took the recipe from vahchef and tried it and enjoyed dahi puri and masala puri(recipe coming soon).

Puri for Chaats - Ingredients
Recipe Source : Vah Chef
  • Rawa(semolina/sooji)- 1/2 cup
  • Maida(all purpose flour ) - 1/2 tbsp
  • Urad Dhal Flour - a pinch
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Warm water or Club soda water - As needed
  • Salt - to taste


How to make puri for pani puri
Method:
1.Add rava, maida in a wide bowl, add water little by little, knead it for 10mins to form a smooth dough. Add oil finally and knead it for a minute. The dough should be smooth so be careful while adding water.Keep aside for atleast 15mins.

Drain in tissue paper and then store in airtight container

You can store the puris for about 10 days. Here are the chaats which uses these mini puris

My Notes:
  • Make sure to knead the dough well and roll it very thin. The puris will become chewy and will not raise up if the rolled puris are thick.
  • Rolling was a bit tough but somehow I tried to roll thin and the puris were nice cripsy like the store bought ones.
  • Make sure the oil is heated up.  Fry till golden brown until crispy. 
  • Adding soda makes the kneading and rolling easier....But if you dont have, then proceed with warm water itself. I didnt use it this time.

  5. I tried making this the other day and failed miserably. I did not have the soda readily available - was that the reason? I do not know, but I think if I can pick it up from the store, I would do it right away. Kudos to you.

    1. You should have rolled it a bit thick that might be the reason....
