Baked Puri

Baked Puri
Healthy way to eat Puris

As I have promised, I am presenting the recipe for Baked Puri. I got the idea of baked puris from here. It is so simple and healthy way to cook puris. But I should tell you: these are not so soft and fluffy like deep fried puris. The baked puris taste so crunchy like papads and may taste little different than the deep fried puris. The only good point is that these are baked (I mean no oil), not deep fried! Try this only if you like crunchy stuff.


Ingredients:
  • ½ cup Whole Wheat Flour (makes 2 puris)
  • ½ tsp Oil
  • Salt and water as required
Preparation:
  1. Mix the flour, oil and salt. Add water and prepare stiff dough. Knead well.
  2. Divide the dough into 2 balls. Roll out into thin puris and prick with a fork to let the air out.
  3. Arrange the puris on a baking tray. Bake in a hot oven at 250c for 10 minutes or until puris become light brown in color.
  4. Enjoy these puris with desired curry or just sugar. If desired, spread butter on top of the puri and enjoy.
  5. We enjoyed our puris with vegetarian chili. The only difference is: I substituted white beans and pink beans with garbanzo beans (chick peas) and kidney beans (rajma). Rest of the process is the same.

Baked Puri

As these make perfect breakfast item, I am sending these to “WBB-Combi Breakfasts” event being hosted by Lata of Masala Magic. This event was started by Nandita of Saffron Trail.

On a Different Note:
  1. Dear friends Kitchen Flavours and Anjali have passed me this beautiful "Wylde Woman Award". Thank you so much for thinking about me friends!
  2. Dear friend Suma Rajesh has passed another pretty award “ARTE Y PICO”. Thanks Suma!

You know what? I've been wondering if puris can be baked and if they'll taste good that way. I don't think I'll serve it as a main dish, though....a starter, maybe.

Uma,

I tried baking the puris but they became very hard like papad... so while baking them i applied like a drop on oil on both the sides... the end result is good...
