How to make Puri's for Pani Puri

I have been making Puri’s for pani puri from a quite long time. It was 4 and half years back I had tried making them when we were in Jeddah. But whenever in India I never took efforts to make them but get from store as it would be stress free enjoyment. But being here in UAE and having no many chat corners we satisfy our needs to the core at home. We do have some chat joints here (not like in SA) but homemade is the best and healthy too J. My hubby likes the pani that I make these days.. Now does this mean he dint like it before??? Nah its that I have adapted my own recipe and make pani which is a big hit these days at my place.

So without much ado let’s get Cooking see what we need.
For The Puris
1/2 cup fine semolina (rava)
1/2 tbsp plain flour (maida)
3 tbsp soda water (bottled)
salt to taste

For the puris
  1. Combine the semolina, plain flour, soda water and salt to make a semi-stiff dough and knead well. Allow it to rest under a wet muslin cloth for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Divide the dough into 40 equal portions and roll each portion into 1½ circles( I have used electronic roti maker as I am very bad at rolling round puri’s)
  3. Deep fry in a kadai in hot oil on a medium flame till they puff up and are golden brown (press each puri using a slotted spoon till they puff up in the oil).
  4. Remove, drain on absorbent paper . Your Puffed up Puri's are ready for Chaat.

Store in an air-tight container or a zip lock bag or air tight plastic bag like the way i did . To See what i have made using these puri's stay tuned! Obviously not the regular pani puri but something New!
