Masala Puris are a Sindhi delicacy which can be had at breakfast or as an accompaniment with a meal. Learn how to make them in this video.

INGREDIENTS

    • 2 bowls wheat flour
    • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
    • Salt to taste
    • 1/2 tsp jeera (cumin) powder
    • Oil
    • 1 cup water

DIRECTIONS

  • In a large plate, add the flour (keeping 2 tbsps aside to roll puris)
  • Add 1/2 tsp ground pepper and 1/2 tsp jeera powder
  • Add 4 tsp oil and salt to taste. Mix well
  • Tip: Oil makes the puris crisp
  • Add water to knead the dough
  • Beat the dough well to ensure it is soft and spices well blended
  • Tip: Finish the kneading with a pat of oil for smoothness
  • To roll the puris, make flat balls
  • Dip the balls in the dry flour and roll into small circles
  • Tip: Avoid using too much dry flour as it leaves a residue on the puri and spoil the oil
  • To fry the puris, heat oil in a kadai (deep pan)
  • Tip: To check if the oil is hot enough, throw in a bit of dough, if it rises immediately, the temperature is ready
  • Gently drop one puri at a time, submerging it completely. Let it puff up and turn over till both sides are golden brown
  • Drain the excess oil and dab with a tissue
  • The puris are ready to be served
