Palak Puri / Poori

Puri is a delicacy which every kid enjoys and that too if the puri is fluffy. My younger sister used to love fluffy puri and mom used to give her big fluffy puri to her and normal puri to us. Now my younger girl loves the fluffy puri and even the fluffy reduces she will give that to her sister and will take another hot and fluffy puri. And i should says it's really difficult to take a good picture of fluffy puri, by the time i ready my camera and click the picture...gone the puri becomes flat. Then i make another one...happens the same...then i was tired of taking many pictures so i ended up with the below picture which is not that bad.

Ingredients:-

Wheat flour 1 cup
Maida flour 1/4 cup
Samolina 2 tbsp
Palak puree 1/2 cup
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


Method:-

Mix all the ingredients and make a hard dough.

Make tennis size balls and with little dry flour, roll out small disc shape flat puris.

Heat oil. Leave one puri at time and press the puri with a ladle so that it puffs up.

Turn and cook on another side,which will take less than a minute.

Take it on a kitchen towel and serve hot with choice of your curry. Best combination with puri is alo curry or chole. I served it with chole.


Srivalli a very wonderful and versatile blogger is celebrating her 8th blog anniversary with annivarsary mela and this puri is going for that mela.
