pudina puri is a quick and easy puri variation which tastes heavenly. This irresistible Pudina Puri dough is made of pudina (mint leaves), plain flour and Indian spices which is then deep fried.
pudina puri has ingredients that are basic and can be found in our homes easily. We have combined pudina, cumin seeds, green chillies, lemon juice, sugar and salt along with water in a blender and blend into a course paste. You can also roughly or finely chop and add the mint leaves if you wish. Further we, have combined plain flour, prepared mint paste, oil which make the puri soft and knead it into a stiff dough. Next, we have divided the dough and rolled it into small circles and deep fried them until they puff up and are golden brown from all the sides. The oil should neither be too hot or too cold.
To check if the oil is at the right temperature or not, drop a small portion of dough in the oil. If it comes up quickly, the oil is too hot and this would brown the puri quickly. If it takes a lot of time, the oil is not hot enough and this would make the masala pudina puri absorb a lot of oil. Gently press the puri with the slotted spoon to get a fluffy pudina puri.
