Pudina (Mint) Puri

Nowadays, HE has to commute quite a lot, though he is not extremely busy at work, so outcome? In addition to regular lunch and fruit, I have to give him some snacks everyday, which is healthy, easy to carry and also, easy to eat while driving. Due to ‘healthy’ criteria, store bought packets are out and I am also not much fond of it. We both like different kinds of ‘puris’ preferably made of wheat flour, since it’s good for health and also consumes less oil compared to plain flour. I experiment quite a bit in this area and here is my version of Mint Puris..

Makes about 40 puris
Preparation Time: 10 Minute
Cooking Time: 45 Minute

2-cup wheat flour
1 tbsp gram flour
1 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp cumin seeds – coarsely crushed
1 tsp pepper – coarsely crushed
2 tsp lemon juice
3 tbsp pudina – finely chopped (I used dried one straight from my home garden, fresh will be even better)
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp red chili powder
2 tsp oil
Oil for frying

1. Mix above all ingredients and make nice firm dough
2. Divide dough in equal balls and roll puris
3. Let them get dried for about an hour at room temperature
4. Fry until they are crisp golden brown
