Ingredients: 2 medium potatoes (300g/ 10 oz) 200g flour (1 1/3 cups) 5 tbsp plain yoghurt 1 tsp salt 6 tbsp water Oil for deep-frying
1. Place the potatoes in pan, cover with water and bring to boil then simmer until cooked, about 10-15 minutes. When the potatoes are done, peel and mash until free of lumps. Set aside. 2. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the yogurt, salt and mashed potatoes. 3. Mix by hand to form a soft dough, adding sufficient water to soften. Knead for 10 minutes then set aside for 10 minutes. 4. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions. Place a portion on a rolling board dusted with flour then roll it out into a pancake about 10 cm (4 in) in diameter. 5. Heat the oil in a wok until very hot and then deep fry 1 or 2 puris at a time until golden brown. 6. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Serve with Vegetarian Dal Curry or with a chutney.
Last time I made this, I did not fry it. Instead I just put it in a non-stick pan with a little bit of ghee and cooked it the way I cook capati.If fried, this puri will turn out like roti arab. By the way I cooked it, it turned into a capati.You can also serve puri with hummus (pureed chickpeas).
I'm just an ordinary person with so many interests that leave me undecided on what to do first ;-)
I love trying out new recipes.I enjoy looking at beautiful embroideries that others made trying to figure out how can I create something like that too??!!!
