Ragi – Wholewheat Puri
A deep fried Indian bread. Best with Dal or any gravy dishes !!!
You will need
½ cup (100 g) ragi flour
½ cup (100 g) wholewheat (atta)
2 teaspoons rawa ( sooji )
½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
½ cup water (approximately 100 ml + 1 or 2 teaspoon)
200 ml Oil for frying
Sift the ragi flour and wholewheat (atta) though a sieve into a bowl. Add rawa and salt and mix it together. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour water a little at a time, and gradually mix to make a dough. Cover with a damp cloth and store in a cool place for 30 minutes or store in an airtight container.
Divide puri dough into 8 portions and make balls. Flatten them to make rounds / puris (4 inches in diameter ). Sprinkle little dry flour when making puris. Make perfect shape with the help of a medium size inverted soup bowl / katori or with a sharp lid.
In a kadai / frying pan, heat oil. Reduce heat to medium and fry puri one at a time till it puffs up. Turn over till both sides until light golden color. Drain on paper towels to absorb extra oil and serve hot with Dal or any North Indian gravy dishes / Aloo ki Bhaji of your choice.
