This dish doesn’t need any introduction. More popular than chapati, simpler than tandoori rotis and widely available, Puri is a deep fried small wheat atta bread. It is infact popular even among kids. I have already put up the recipe of stuffed puri and readers have taken very well to it. Here now is the simpler version – plain puris. You may have this with vegetable kurma, vegetable sagu, potato bhaji or even coconut wet chutneys.
What you need to have:
1. Plain wheat atta – 3/4 cup
2. Maida (All purpose flour) – 1/4 cup
3. Cooking oil – 3-4 teaspoons
