Who doesn’t like puris? It is a hard blow to puri–lovers when doctors tell them to go on a diet that omits deep-fried foods.
Here is an awesome Baked Buckwheat Puri, which lets you have fun hand-in-hand with a cartload of health benefits too. We have used buckwheat to make this healthy snack as it helps to manage blood sugar and cholesterol levels better.
This native grain is a good source of manganese, which helps our body to produce the enzymes needed to build strong bones. The fact that it is a complete protein makes it apt for athletes too.
What’s more, weight-watchers can also munch on this healthy snack at tea-time, or to replace unhealthy deep-fried snacks in their lunch dabba.
Buckwheat dough can be a little troublesome to roll, so you can pat it between your palms or roll it between plastic sheets. These tasty puris are properly spiced and of the right crispness.
