Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

3 Cup(s) Wheat flour
1 Tablespoon(s) Ghee
1 Tablespoon(s) Curds
Salt to taste
Warm water for kneading
Ghee to deep fry
Sieve salt and flour together. Add ghee and curds and mix well. Add
warm water little by little to knead dough. Make a soft pliable dough.
Keep covered with a moist cloth for 10 minutes. Make small apricot
sized balls. Roll into thick puries (4"diam. or as desired) some at a
time. Deep fry in hot ghee. Allow to puff up, flip and fry other side
till light golden. Drain and serve hot and puffed. As name suggests,
serve with any accompaniment. Curds or curries or mango pulp(aam ras)
or pickles or vegetables. To pack for travelling, cool, pile, lightly
compress with hand and pack in foil. Accompany with pickles. Making
time:40 minutes Makes:30-35 puries Shelflife:2-3 days Variations
Sprinkle a few seeds of sesame, ajwain or cumin over puris and press
very lightly before puffing. This will give a festive look to the
puries. To make mildly spiced puries, add 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder
to dough while sieving. Converted by MC_Buster. Converted by
