Baked puri is always an healthy option to deep fried puri. They are crisp and can be stored in airtight container.
Puris or Pooris is an Indian Bread prepared out of either wheat flour or all purpose flour(maida) usually deep fried and served with any kind of gravy dishes. But today, I have attempted healthy version of these puris, without deep frying. Just baked them for 10 minutes .
These puris can be stored in the air tight containers and can be used whenever required. But deep fried puris need to be consumed on the same day or maximum within 2 days.
The baked version of puris are crisp and not soft and oily like deep fried ones. These baked ones can also be used for sev puri, bhel puri.
So let us see how to prepare these oil free puris.
Yields: 12 Puris
Preparation Time: 20 Mins
Baking Time:10 Mins
Total Time: 30 Mins
- 3/4 Cups Whole wheat Flour + Extra for dusting
- 1 Teaspoon Cumin seeds
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon oil + Extra for brushing
- Water for kneading
Mix all the above ingredients except water.
Now add water little at a time until you get nice dough.
Dough consistency should be same as that of chapati dough.
Cover and keep for 10 minutes.
Now make small balls (Little bigger then marble size balls).
Dust a ball with flour and roll it with rolling pin into a thin puri(About 3 inches in diameter).
Repeat for all .
Arrange all on a baking tray lined with silver foil greased with oil.
Brush each puri lightly with oil.
Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit.
Bake the puris for about 10 minutes or until you see them stiff and crisp.
Remove and store in air tight container and enjoy whenever you want.
