Servings: 10 - 12
Puri / Poori (Fried Indian Bread)
2 cups flour, sifted
3/4 cup hot water
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp. oil
Oil for frying
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oil and salt and mix well.
Gradually add the water and mix.
Knead until you have a smooth elastic dough.
Cover and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
Divide the dough into 10 - 12 portions.
Roll each dough portion into a disc.
Gently slide the puri into hot oil. It will first sink to the bottom of the frying pan and after a few seconds will float to the top.
Press on one side of the puri to help it puff.
Flip to other side and cook until done.
Remove from oil and repeat with the remaining puris.
