  • 1 tsp - sooji (rawa)
  • 1 green chilli, very finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp - fresh Mint leaves ( chopped )
  • 1 tbsp - Coriander leaves ( chopped )
  • 1/2 tsp - Cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1/2 tsp - ajwain (carom seeds)
  • 1/2 tsp - Turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp - salt
  • 1/4 tsp - Sugar
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup - water
  • 250 ml - oil( for frying)
  • How to Make Theek Puri - Spicy Puri:

    1. In a bowl, mix atta, sooji, chopped green chilli, mint - coriander leaves, ajwain, turmeric powder, sugar and salt.
    2. 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.
    3. Keep aside in an airtight container for one hour or cover the container with a wet cloth.
    4. Divide puri dough into 12 portions and make balls.
    5. Flatten them to make rounds / puris (5 inches in diameter).
    6. 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.
    7. 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.
    8. Fry puri one at a time till it puffs up. Turn over till both sides are light golden in colour.
    9. 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.
