    Units: US | Metric



    1. 1
      sift dry ingredients into a bowl.
    2. 2
      add the water a little at a time, and knead gently till a soft dough forms.
    3. 3
      Continue kneading till supple, but do not overwork dough.
    4. 4
      add oil to the dough and continue to knead till it is completely smooth.
    5. 5
      put the dough in a plastic bag or wrap in clear film.
    6. 6
      place in a cool room or in the refrigerator and leave to reast for at least 30 minutes, or overnight if possible.
    7. 7
      to make the filling, put the split peas in a large pan, pour over water to cover and cook for about 10-15 minutes, till half cooked - they should be tender on the outside, but still firm in the middle.
    8. 8
      allow water to evaporate during cooking, till pan is almost dry, but add a little extra water to prevent burning if necessary.
    9. 9
      spread out the peas on a tray. When cool, grind to a paste, using a mortar and pestle or food processor. Mix with cumin and garlic.
    10. 10
      Divide the dough into about 15 balls, slightly flatten each ball, put about 1 T of the split pea mixture into the center and fold over the edges.
    11. 11
      dust a rolling pin and board with flour and roll out the dhal puri, taking care not to overstretch the dough, till they are 7 inches in diameter.
    12. 12
      heat a little oil in a frying pan. Cook dhal puri for 3 minutes on each side till light brown. Serve as soon as last one is cooked.

      Had this as a starter, then had Chicken breasts with apple curry sauce by PattyKay too. I added nothing. Once again Pattykay, I love the cumin! Thanks.

      OUTSTANDING flatbreads!!! I am so, so, SO happy I made this recipe; I felt like I was eating puri from an Indian restaurant. I never dreamed I could make them this good myself. I halved the recipe (that won't happen again, LOL) but used a little extra garlic and cumin in the filling. And it certainly didn't take almost 2 hours to make them. I would say 1 hour would be about right; but they are very easy. These will become a regular in our house, Pattikay, thank you!!
