  • Boil the potato and then remove its skin. Grate it and then mash it well to avoid lumps.
  • Take the mashed potato in a bowl and mix it with turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin seeds, chopped coriander, and salt.
  • Mix them well and then add the wheat flour little by little. Combine well with the potato mixture. 
  • Now add 2 tbsp of water or sprinkle some water and knead the dough to a stiff texture. (do not knead the dough until smooth)
  • Please keep in mind that potato contains moisture and once we set aside this dough for few minutes, it releases the moisture and the dough will be softer.  So knead the dough to a stiff texture. Grease the dough with little oil and set aside covered.
  • Set aside for 15 minutes. 
  • Make small balls out of this dough. Flatten using greased chappathi presser or puri presser (see the pic) or roll it using a rolling pin on rolling board by greasing with oil. Roll them into small puri .
  • Heat oil in a kadai or wok and once hot, deep fry them. Please keep in mind to maintain the oil temperature. It is very important that the oil for frying puri is well heated. (not high or low)
  • And keep in mind that once you slide the puri to the hot oil, you must press the puri with the back of the spoon gently which helps the puri to puff up. 
  • Serve hot . Please watch the related video showing how to make perfect aloo puri. Tips and tricks for making perfect poori.
