Potato Puris Recipe

Ingredients :

250 g

2 cups

2 teaspoons

1/4 cup

1 tablespoon

Boiled, mashed potato

Plain white flour

Salt

Lukewarm water

Ghee, optional

Oil for deep frying

Method :
  • Use floury potatoes and mash until very smooth.

  • Allow to cool, then mix in flour and salt sifted together.

  • Knead, adding water as necessary to make a firm but not dry dough.

  • The more the dough is kneaded, the lighter the puris will be, so knead for at least 10 minutes or until dough becomes smooth and not-sticky.

  • Cover and leave to rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  • Divide mixture into 20-24 equal-size balls, and roll each one out on a floured board to the size of a saucer.

  • When all are rolled out, heat enough oil in a deep pan and add the ghee for flavor.

  • As soon as the oil starts to show a haze on the surface slip in one puri at a time and with a frying spoon, splash oil over the top of it to make it puff like a balloon.

  • When underside is pale golden brown, turn and cook the other side.

  • Drain on absorbent paper and serve warm with lentils, vegetables, or meat curries that do not have a lot of thin gravy.
