Puri (Fried wheat bread)

Among the large number of breads that form part of Indian cuisine a favourite is this fried bread that is easy to make and delicious with any curry or dal. It is a versatile bread as it can be made plain or stuffed with a variety of vegetables and even lentils. Here I am offering the recipe to make plain puris.


(Serves 5)

Wheat flour (atta) 3 cups
Salt to taste
Water as needed
Oil for frying


Mix the wheat flour and salt in a wide bowl. Make a dough using a little water at a time. Work the dough till it comes together and then knead for another five minutes using the heel of your palm to work the dough. Let it rest for 10 minutes.

Make 20 small balls from the dough. Roll them out to small discs and fry in hot oil.

Serve hot with curry or dal.
