  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1/2 teaspoon carom seed (ajwain)
  • 1/8 teaspoon asafetida (Hing)
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 cup water

Method For 

  1. In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients all-purpose flour, sooji, Salt, Cumin seeds, carom seeds, asafetida, and red chili flakes.
  2. Add oil to the flour mix and rub with your fingers to mix it well. Add the water little at a time, making into a firm dough.
  3. Cover the dough and set aside for about 10 minutes or more.
  4. Divide the dough into about 40 equal parts, and roll them between your palms.
  5. Roll the puri into 3-inch circles.



  1. Prick each puri with a fork in 3 to 4 places, this will prevent the puri not to puff while frying.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
  3. The frying pan should have about 1 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should make the oil sizzle and come up slowly.
  4. Fry few puri at a time, make sure to place just enough puri to cover the oil. Fry them until both sides are a light golden-brown. Take them out over paper towel and repeat the process.
