DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl mix together the all-purpose flour, semolina, salt, pepper, cumin seeds, and vegetable shortening.
  • Mix lightly to obtain a bread-crumb consistency.
  • Add equal amounts of milk and warm water to make a stiff dough.
  • Knead the dough well for 15-20 minutes, cover, and set aside for another 20 minutes.
  • Make lemon-sized balls of the dough, and roll into 3-inch diameter circles ('puris') on a floured board, using a rolling pin.
  • Prick each'puri' with a fork a few times.
  • Heat oil (for frying) in a heavy frying pan and deep fry the puris, one at a time (turning every minute or so for even browning), until golden brown.
  • Remove from heat and drain excess oil on tissue.
  • Serve plain, or with a sweet/sour chutney.
  • This can be stored in an airtight tin for upto a week.
