  • Using a round cookie cutter or round steel bowl, make small round shaped puri.
  • Now heat the oil for deep frying. Once hot, make the flame to medium low(very important). If the oil is too hot, the puris will turn brown and never puff up. So make the flame to medium low, once the oil turns hot. ( for a perfect puffed puri, it must be fried over a low flame)
  • Slide the puri one by one to the oil. It will sink first in the oil and then puff up. (just touch on the top of the puri with a spoon if it is not puffing  up)
  • When the puris become golden, transfer it to a paper towel. After 2 minutes store them in an air tight container. You can store this fried puri in an air tight container for weeks.
