(Farsi )RAVA - MENDA PURI ~ Salty and Crispy deep fried biscuits

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Farsi Puri is a Gujarati style MATHRI...crispy, crumbly and scrumptious, deep fried Indian bread is a any time snack.It gets its name “Farsi” from a Gujarati word meaning crispy. Extremly popular in Gujarat at breakfast and diwali time and perfect with masala tea and sambharo ( cabbage stir fry ). Great for when travelling too.

You will need:-
  • 1 cup plain flour ( maida )
  • 1/2 cup semolina ( sooji
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp crushed black pepper
  • 2 tbsp crushed cumin seeds
  • 3-4 tbsp melted ghee
  • kasoori methi ( dry fenugreek leaves ) optional
  • oil to deep fry

Place all the ingredients in a big bowl except oil.
Mix everything and add water as required and kneed a stiff dough. Dough should be harder than normal puri dough.
Cover the dough with clean kitchen towel and leave it aside for 20-25 minutes.
Once again kneed the dough and divide equally the dough into small balls.
Roll it out on clean smooth surface into small circles 4-5 mm thick.
Pick the puris with fork.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom kadai.
Fry the puris on medium to low heat until light brown both side .
As they cool they'll go more crispier.
Let completely cool and store them in airtight container and consume within 10-15 days - as if they'd be around that long!.
