I still remember last year  we both were at my son’s place in New York during Diwali and  from there I posted a couple of recipes and it is Diwali again 2013 now.  This Diwali I made this delicious gujju snack – Farsi puri – easy to prepare even if a bit time consuming.

What you need to have:

1. Maida (all purpose flour ) – 1 and 3/4 cup

2. Semolina (thin) – 1/4 cup

3. Black pepper powder – 2 and 1/4 teaspoons(i have used both white & black pepper)

4. Ajwain powder – 2 and 1/4  teaspoons

5. Cumin powder – 2 and 1/4 teaspoons

6. Salt – as per taste

7. Cooking oil – 2 Tablespoons

8. Water to make the dough – 1/2 cup in all KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA                                                                        Maida and sujee

4. Add water slowly in steps once you mix all the ingredients and make a normal soft dough as shown in the image. Pinch out a lemon size of the dough and set aside for about an hour. KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA                                                           Dough and the pinched out ball

9. On cooling transfer it to a serving bowl for a closer view of the snack. On cooling store them in an air tight container and they should remain afresh when fried in fresh oil.  It will be so  crispy and will melt in the mouth if rolled and fried ideally.

NUmber of Puris: 50

How long it takes: 1 and 1/2 hour

Good to remember:

1. Use fresh maida and fresh raw oil to make the dough.  Also use fresh oil to fry the snack.

2. Make the dough using only the quantity of water mentioned in the recipe if adding the thin sujee as shown in the picture.

3. Always fry this snack on low flame only (adjust based on your burner)

4. The spice powder has to be as fine as possible.  Else just sieve it in the atta sieve.

5. Apply oil generously to the rolled roti.
