How to Make Theek Puri - Spicy Puri

  • In a bowl, mix atta, sooji, chopped green chilli, mint - coriander leaves, ajwain, turmeric powder, sugar and salt.
  • First add 1/2 cup water and later adjust with remaining water to make dough (if using Aashirvaad atta, it requires 3/4 cup water). Dough should be just like the puri dough.
  • Keep aside in an airtight container for one hour or cover the container with a wet cloth.
  • Divide puri dough into 12 portions and make balls.
  • Flatten them to make rounds / puris (5 inches in diameter).
  • Sprinkle little dry flour when making puris. Make perfect shape with the help of a medium size inverted soup bowl / katori or with a sharp lid.
  • In a karahi / frying pan, heat oil. Reduce to medium heat and wait for 2 minutes. Do not fry on high heat it will get brown colour immediately.
  • Fry puri one at a time till it puffs up. Turn over till both sides are light golden in colour.
  • Drain on paper towels to absorb extra oil and serve hot with dal or any north Indian gravy dishes / aloo ki bhaji of your choice.
