I love cooking native Indian delicious dishes. I would like to share my favourite recipes with my dear readers.
Puri is a deep-fried food. It was originated in the Indian subcontinent. It is usually eaten as a breakfast and snack. It may also be eaten with a savoury curry called bhaji in India. It is the most popular food for the people of India.

For frying puris:
- cooking oil , as needed
- Pour black pepper and cumin seeds into a stone bowl and crush them into semi powder.
- In another bowl, pour maida, rice flour, semolina, crushed powder of black pepper and cumin seeds, salt, red chilli powder and cooking oil and mix them well.

- After leaving the dough for about 5 minutes, knead it again.
- Make dough balls of the same size from the dough.
- Take one dough ball and mix it with dry maida flour. Roll it out with a rolling pin and cut it into a round shape with a glass. Keep them on an oily plate.
- Pour oil into a pan and heat the oil.
- Once the oil gets hot, drop a puri into the hot oil of the pan to check its temperature.
- If the oil gets hot properly, drop the puris one by one into the hot oil of the pan on high flame.
- Fry both sides of the puris until they turn golden brown on medium flame.
- After they turn golden brown, take them out on a plate with a strainer.
- Puris are now ready to be served.
