Spicy Mint Puri

Spicy Mint Puri

Makes: 10 - 12


1 cup whole wheat ( atta )
1 teaspoon sooji ( rava )
1/4 cup chopped mint leaves
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon jeera ( cumin seeds )
1/2 teaspoon ajwain ( helps in digestion )
Water ( less than 1/2 cup water )
150 ml oil for frying ( 3/4 - inch level from the base of the kadai / frying pan )


Mix atta, mint leaves, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, jeera, salt , sooji and ajwain together and knead into soft dough by adding enough water ( neither too soft nor too hard ). Keep aside in an airtight container for half an hour.

Divide the dough into small balls and roll them out into small round discs ( puri ) with the help of dry flour.

Heat oil in a kadai and deep fry each Puri separately and remove when the puri is light brown in color on both the sides. Serve with Aloo bhaji ( Potato Bhaji ).
