For Gujaratis, Diwali is incomplete without Farsi Puri. This deep-fried dry snack has evergreen fanfare, and you will understand why if you just try it once. It is made with common ingredients and is easy to make, but it has a melt-in-the-mouth texture because of the addition of semolina and ghee to the plain flour dough, and a lingering flavour contributed by black pepper. Relish it plain or with a cup of tea or coffee.

It is good but i found it very difficult to roll .

Tarla Dalal    The dough is stiff so rolling will require little pressure like most fried puris.

I have tried this recipe. You have to use quite a lot of additional water (I used milk) to get this into anything like a pliable dough. It is worth the hassle. Very Very tasty little biscuit type offerings

Tarla Dalal    Hi, You can try and bake at 180 C for 10 minutes and keep checking, make sure you roll them little thin or else they will take a long time to cook.

Hi. Can we substitute maida for wheat flour?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Heena, It will not taste good and nor will it have a good texture.
