Making of Dal Puri

Ingredients (dough)

White Flour 1.25 cup

Water 1/2 cup

Oil 2 tbsp

Salt to taste


In a bowl mix flour, salt and oil together. Add the water slowly, as required. Knead the dough lightly, dough should be firm and smooth. Cover with wet towel and let it rest for 15 mins.

Divide dough into small balls. Flatten one dough ball and place dal stuffing in center and seal it from all sides. Apply some oil onto surface and gently roll the dough ball into round disks, making sure the dal stuffing does not fall out.

Heat the oil in frying pan over medium heat frying pan, oil must be hot! To check if oil is ready drop a little piece of dough in the oil. Dough should sizzle, and come up slowly.

Fry one dal puri at a time. Slowly place the puri in the frying pan, slightly pressing on top so the puri puffs up. Allow one side to cook well and then flip it.

Drain excess oil in paper towels and repeat the process for remaining puri's.

Serve with tamarind sauce! Enjoy!
