It is easy to prepare,no need of any khurma or curry preparation,because spices are already added. My family like them to eat as evening tiffin!. Actually it is my fantasy recipe.

This is GREAT! I made these this evening. The only mistake I made was add a little too much of water while kneading this, due to which I had to keep adding both the flours in the ratio mentioned in the recipe. I added 1/4 cup wheat flour plus a handful more of it and 1 cup of maida(all purpose flour). Also, since I had alot of cooking to do, I kept this aside to ferment for 1 hour instead of half. I got a total of 16 puris. One important thing one must take care of while making these puris is their SIZE. I made some big and some small, but when I was at the end, I discovered that the ideal size of these is with a diameter of 2 inches and NOT more. Unfortunately, I made some puris with diameters like 5 or 6 inches in size which is a mistake I wont repeat, I'd swear by that! This recipe is time consuming, but well worth the effort. Your family is so lucky to get these in their tiffin! :)
