The recipe that I have shown here Wheat Flour Masala Puri is one of the simplest snack dishes. It is traditionally a deep-fried snack made during festivals like Diwali or Holi. Crisp golden Puris as they are called is seasoned with spices and is easy to make a snack that you can take when you travel.

  • 1 cup Wheat Flour
  • 1 tbsp. cup Ghee
  • 1 teaspoon Ajwain (Carom seeds)
  • 1 teaspoon red chilies powder
  • ½ teaspoon Black Salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt as per to taste
  • Oil to fry
Cooking Instructions
  1. To begin making the homemade Papdi, we will first have to make the dough.
  2. Mix all the flour, ajwain, black salt, ghee, and salt, red chilies powder together. Add water a little at a time and knead the papdi dough until it becomes firm and smooth and firm. It should not be soft.
  3. You can make 30 small balls and roll them out thin about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and 1/8 th thickness.
  4. Or you can divide the dough into two portions and roll out into a big large circle and cut small rounds using a cookie cutter.
  5. Make sure the papdi you roll out is thin.
  6. After rolling prick the papdi puri with a fork all round to prevent it from puffing when baked
  7. Place the oil for deep frying over medium heat. To check the right temperature, put a small tiny ball of dough into the oil and if it comes sizzling up, then you know the oil is heated to the right temperature.
  8. Slide the papdi into the oil in small batches and deep fry until golden brown.
  9. Drain the excess oil by placing it in a kitchen paper. You can optionally at this stage sprinkle chaat masala on the top to make it chatpata.
  10. Allow it to cool and store the Papdi in an airtight container.
