Verki Puri is a crispy, flaky jar snack with a touch of pepper and cumin, which will become everybody’s favourite!

Its unusual texture, which comes from the use of hot ghee in the dough, charms both young and old alike, while its mildly spicy taste makes it a wonderful accompaniment for tea.

This can be made in advance and enjoyed with your evening beverage, or can be carried to work or while travelling to relish whenever hungry.

You can also try other jar snack recipes like Phoolwadi or Methi Puri .

Verki Puri, Crispy Jar Snack recipe - How to make Verki Puri, Crispy Jar Snack

Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 14 puris
Show me for puris

1 cup plain flour (maida)
1/4 cup semolina (rava / sooji)
1 tsp coarsely crushed black pepper
1 tsp coarsely crushed cumin seeds (jeera)
2 tbsp hot ghee
salt to taste
oil for deep-frying

To Be Mixed Into A Paste
2 tbsp melted ghee
2 1/2 tbsp rice flour (chawal ka atta)
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and mix well.
  2. Add enough water and knead into a semi-stiff dough like a puri dough
  3. Roll 5 portions of the dough, one by one, into a 200 mm. (8") diameter circle without using any flour for rolling.
  4. Place a rolled portion on a clean, dry surface, spread a little of the prepared paste evenly over it. While leaving a little space at the circumference.
  5. Place another rolled portion over it.
  6. Repeat step 4 and 5 to make 3 more layers.
  7. Roll it up tightly from one end to the other and cut into 14 equal portions using a sharp knife.
  8. Flatten each portion in between your palms and again lightly roll them into a 75 mm. (3”) diameter circle without using any flour for rolling. Make sure to seal the ends of each puri very well using your fingers, so that they do not open up while deep-frying.
  9. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry 2 to 3 puris at a time on a medium slow flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
  10. Cool, store in an air-tight container and use as required.
