Til Ki Puri

Til Ki Puri

A deep fried Indian bread with spices and sesame seeds. Good combination with pickles, curd or dal !!!

Makes: 9 puris

You will need

1 cup (200 g) whole wheat flour (gehum ka atta)
1/4 teaspoon (up to 1/2 teaspoon) salt
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds (til)
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander leaves
60 ml water
200 ml oil for frying


In a bowl, mix atta, salt, til, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and finely chopped coriander leaves. Add 60 ml (50 - 65 ml) water and make a dough. Keep aside in an airtight container for one hour.

Divide puri dough into 9 portions and make balls. Flatten them to make rounds (4 inches in diameter) with the help of little dry flour.

In a kadai, heat oil. Reduce heat to medium and fry puri one at a time till it puffs up. Turn over till both sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels to absorb extra oil and serve with pickle, curd or any North Indian gravy dishes of your choice.
