During the lockdown, hubby would hunt for simple recipes on YouTube that could be had for a brunch, a lunch, or even a dinner. With just the two of us at home, cooking elaborate meals three times a day felt like a task. And, during one such hunt, he came across this recipe.
It doesn’t need too many ingredients. In fact, it tastes equally good even if you missed out on a few ingredients or added some of your own. But, you get a dish that is tasty and satisfying.
Sharing with you all the recipe today. I can’t remember where hubby found the recipe, but I would like to thank whoever shared it. I love it!

Salt – to taste
Oil – for frying.
In a mixing bowl, take the wheat flour and mix all the masala, Kasuri methi and mashed potatoes.
Heat the ghee in a tadka pan and then pour it in the above mixture (ghee gives a distinct flavour to the puri).
Mix it all well and prepare a dough.
Heat oil in a kadhai and deep fry the puris till golden brown.
You can have these with your favourite pickle, or dal, or just like that. With the kind of taste-makers we have added, these really don’t need any accompaniments! 🙂
