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).
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.
2.Roll the dough very very thin and cut small rounds with a lid or container rim.Heat oil, carefully add the rolled puris , fluff it up(as we do for normal puris) and fry them to golden brown till crisp. Drain in tissue paper and then store in airtight container
- 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.
