Puri Recipe

Ingredients :

2 cups Indian whole wheat flour
1/2 Tablespoon vegetable oil
salt to taste
Method :
Slowly add about 3/4 cup warm water, just enough to form a firm dough, and knead till smooth. Cover, let rest at least 1/2 hour, and knead again briefly. If resting more than 1 hour, punch and knead dough again before rolling out.
Divide into small balls about golf-ball size, and roll out into 6" rounds on an oiled board. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or saucepan. Add a little salt to the oil to keep it from smoking. Fry the puri one at a time, holding them under the oil on the first side until they puff. Turn and fry till light brown; drain.
Serve as soon as possible.
Puri are traditionally served with Chana, Black-eyed Pea Curry, Spinach Dal, Potato Curry, Brussels Sprouts.
