What is a Puri?

The puri needs no introduction to any Indian. It is perhaps one of the most versatile and popular of Indian foods, well-known and much-liked not just in all states of India but in other parts of the world as well. Whether it is a rich and spongy batura or a light and crispy whole wheat flour puri, be it a plain one or a spicy version, everybody loves puris!

The puri is basically a deep-fried snack made with dough. The dough is made of flour, water and salt, sometimes perked up with a few spices or pureed veggies or greens. This dough is then shaped into small discs using a rolling pin and deep-fried. There are many varieties of puris such as plain ones, stuffed ones, and crispy jar snack puris that last for a week.


What is a plain puri?

A plain puri is essentially one that has not been stuffed. It is made of flour-based dough, seasoned with salt and/or spices. Sometimes the dough is reinforced with grated or mashed veggies, pureed greens, etc. Since these discs are not stuffed, they puff up enticingly when deep-fried. This gives them a nice and fluffy mouth-feel. To ensure that the puris puff up well and give the right texture, you should make sure the oil is really hot before dropping the flour discs into it.

Plain puris can be had for breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you have added a touch of spices to the dough, then you can serve it plain, or with curds and pickles, else serve it with a semi-dry subzi.

5 Tips to make the perfect plain puri

1. The dough should always be semi-stiff and never soft.
2. You must roll the puris without using any flour for rolling.
3. Grease the rolling board and pin with a little oil to make the job easier.
4. The oil should be nice and hot before you drop the puris in.
5. When you deep-fry, press each puri lightly so it will puff up.

What is a stuffed puri?

A stuffed puri, as the name suggests, is one that has been stuffed with veggies, greens, spices, dal or other scrumptious fillings. You can have these stuffed puris independently, or with a cup of curds. As they are bursting with flavor, you do not need a subzi to add flavor to the meal.

Since these puris are stuffed, they do not puff up like regular puris. Unlike the light and crisp mouth-feel of plain puris, these have a more sumptuous, succulent mouth-feel – it kind of feels richer!

Stuffed puris give a lot of room for innovation too, as you can mix and match the ingredients to make a different version every time!
