i am not a huge fan of the farsi puri recipe when compared to my previous post of methi puri. i like the later because it is a complete package. it has to offer the bitterness, savoury and spice in each bite. and hence that’s the reason, you can find recipes of farsi puri with methi leaves too. however, i have prepared it without it and respecting the traditional gujarati recipe. having said that, i have used wheat flour and skipped the maida or plain flour and thus giving it a healthy touch. using atta flour is certainly healthy, but in terms of taste, maida should be your first choice. or perhaps, you can combine both with an equal ratio too.

some tips, recommendations and suggestions to this simple and easy farsi puri recipe. firstly, while kneading the dough, make sure it is firm and not soft like chapati dough. i recommend adding water in batches while kneading so to keep it under control. secondly, the puri’s should be slightly thicker than a normal chapati or roti’s. this would help in attaining a crisp brittle texture. also, do not forget to poke with a fork before deep frying. lastly, deep fry these in small batches in a low to medium flame. once deep fried, store them in an airtight container for a longer shelf life.
