Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Serves: 8 Puris


  • Whole wheat flour (aata): 2 Cup
  • Water: As required
  • Fresh Green Peas (Matar): 1 Cup
  • Salt: 1 Teaspoon or to taste
  • Turmeric Powder: ¼ Teaspoon

  • Aamchur Powder: ½ Teaspoon
  • Cumin seeds (jeera): ½ Teaspoon (optional)
  • Oil: 1 tablespoon and as required to fry the puris

  • Turn off the heat.
  • Blend the cooked peas using little water to a smooth paste.
  • Transfer the paste in a bowl.

  • Using water knead a hard dough. (If the dough is soft, rolling the puris will be difficult and it would absorb more oil while frying).
  • Add 1 teaspoon oil to the dough and knead again.
  • Cover the dough with a wet cloth and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into ball.
  • Take a ball, grease with little oil and roll into 3-4-inch diameter circle.
  • Heat oil for dep fry.
  • In medium heat, add the puri in the oil, press the puri very gently using a slotted spatula and flip it once it puffs up or after 30 seconds. Fry both sides until light golden brown. Oil should be enough to cover the puffed puri.
  • Fry all the puris one by one or 2-3 at a time. Drain the excess oil and take them out on a kitchen napkin.
  • Serve hot with any of the below mentioned side curry.
