Thank you Chandricka for this Indian recipe that we all love.
Ingredients
2 oz 50 gm chapatti flour
1 1/2 pts 1 lt oil
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp water
Method
Mix the chapatti flour with a little oil(1/4 tsp), add the chilli, turmeric and salt and pepper.
Add enough water, 1/2 tsp at a time, to make a stiff dough.
Knead well and at the end add a little more oil.
Take walnut size pieces and roll to 3 inch 8 cm rounds.
Fry in deep hot oil. Press them down below the surface of the oil at the beginning. Cook until crisp and golden.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
Makes 4 puris.
Delicious to eat as a starter with chutneys and sambols or to accompany a curry meal.
