anyway, some important tips, suggestions and variations for a perfectly flaky and crispy verki puri recipe. firstly, i always recommend to use maida for this recipe and do not attempt with wheat or any other flours. varki puri is known for its crispiness and flakiness which can be derived only with plain flour. secondly, i have layered 7 layers of rolled roti to achieve the flakiness. you can increase or decrease the number as per your preference. lastly the dough has to be kneaded very tightly which may be an issue to roll, but required to get the desired texture. also do not forget to deep fry in small batches as it has to be cooked evenly.
