Puris are perhaps one of the most well-known and versatile of indian foods. It can be served as a snack or a meal depending on the accompanying items. However, it is important to know the right way of making puris, so that they come out nice and fluffy and without too much oil. While the perfect puri can be bliss, flops can be quite overwhelming and prevent diners from having their fill. Why worry when you have this foolproof recipe to follow. Serve up those hot and crispy puris with a steaming side-dish or just curds and pickle; it’ll be wonderful in any case!
