How about making something healthy and tasty with Kasuri methi? I made baked Kasuri methi puri with whole wheat flour and oats. It came out very tasty and crispy. The flavor of Kasuri methi was prominent. It reminded me of the crispy puris that my mother used to pack for me when I was in a hostel. Those were fried puris, but nowadays people want to consume less oil and are counting calories. I am one of them. I avoid deep frying most times.

My mother and father have a food processing unit in India. They have a big solar drier installed in their unit. They make kasuri methi, dried coriander, dried turmeric, potato chips, sabudana chips, dried onions, dried tomato, dried mango, gooseberry, guava and many more. They also prepare the Gujarati Chundo in it. During my recent trip to India, my mother gave me many of the products made in their unit and “Kasuri methi ” was one of them. Since it was from our own company, I was least worried about the standards and quality. The methi used for drying was the best ones available in the season there. It was all processed in a hygienic condition.

When I came back home and opened the pack of methi, I was delighted with the aroma it gave.

I had earlier shared the recipe of baked whole wheat masala puri.   This time I thought of making the puris with kasuri methi and add oats and cream to it. I have not added any baking soda here. The cream used prevented the puri to get dry while they were baking. However, if you want to avoid cream you can either add ghee or oil instead.

The puris came out very crisp and were enjoyed by all at home.

      Hi Nidhi,
      You can use fresh methi leaves for making this baked puris. Use 1 cup of methi leaves. See that they are washed and dried on cloth. The excess moisture from methi leaves will not help in kneading a stiff dough.
      Thanks and regards
