Method for Puri :

  • Break small portions of the dough and roll it to the puri size and shape.
  • Heat enough oil to deep fry in a kadhai and slide one puri at a time, pressing it down lightly for the puri to puff up.
  • Turn it to the other side, pressing it lightly again. (Make sure to fry both sides on high flame till it turns golden-brown.)
