Keep oil to get heated in a small heavy bottom pan or pot. We will roll puris in the mean time.
The dough is set well after 20 minutes. You can see the white spots on the dough.
Knead the dough once again to make it smooth and divide the dough into small balls. You can make around 30 balls from it.
Take one ball. Smoothen between the palms and flatten it by pressing between the palms. Similarly flatten the remaining balls. Cover and keep aside to prevent from drying.
Grease the rolling board and rolling pin with oil . Take one flatten dough and start gently rolling into a circle with the rolling pin.
Roll into 4 cm circle. Roll the remaining puris.
Take one puri and slide it gently into the hot oil. (Keep the heat on medium while putting the rolled puri into the oil). Be careful and keep children away as the oil is too hot.
The puri goes down .
The puri will puff up. Or press with the spatula and it will puff up. (the temperature of the oil plays an important part in puffing up the puri. So maintain a constant temperature while frying the puri. Too high temperature will brown the puri and too low temperature will not puff the puri).
Cook golden on both the sides by flipping in between.
Take the puffed puri in the slotted spoon so that excess oil drips off and remove it on the tissue paper on a plate.
Similarly fry the remaining puris. The hot puffed puris are ready to serve.
Serve the puri with bhaji and pickle for a scrumptious treat.
My son gave me thumbs up after eating his favorite puri.
Enjoy puri bhaji in breakfast, lunch or dinner or pack it for the lunch box / picnic/or potluck.
Aarav relishing his treat.
