Methi Puris




Abi likes "Puri" but not the "aloo" veg I give him with it. So I was thinking of a new way to give him his favourite puri (at the same time include the veggie) so that he does not get bored of eating plain puri.To make it more colourful and nutritious I added "Methi" to the dough and made puris for him. I passed in my test for the day because not only did it look appealing, Abi was very happy that he did not have to eat vegetables! Win win situation for both of us! Something that makes my Abi smile definitely deserves to be put up for Blogging Marathon! Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#50
Ingredients:

1. Wheat flour- 1 cup
2. Washed and chopped methi - 1cup
3. Ajwain,Pepper and Salt- To taste

Method:

Take a wide mouth vessel, add all the ingredients.
Mix with your hand nicely without adding any water first.
Once the methi and flour is mixed nicely, add a little water at a time to make a soft dough. Be careful not to add too much water as the methi also leaves water when you knead.

Make lemon sized balls and keep them ready.
Heat oil in a wok/ kadai
Take a ball and roll it nicely (neither too thin nor too thick).
Drop it in the hot oil, press it lightly with the ladle till it puffs up.Turn it and press the other side also. Remove when it turns golden brown.
Repeat till you finish the balls.
Makes about 12 to 15 puris of small size.
Remember not to keep the dough for long before frying as it becomes loose.
Serve hot with chutneys of your choice or pickles, specially lemon pickle (sweet) although you do not necessarily need any side dish.

These pooris look very flavourful and its a perfect combo to serve these with potato curry.

Methi in the puri must enhance the flavor as well as make them look appetizing.
