Masala puri...south Indian style

Masala Puri- another traditional south Indian style snack, these wonderful little morsels of flavour will satisfy a hunger pang any time of the day or night. They can be had at breakfast with some coffee or tea, as a mid morning snack with a glass of milk shakes or in the evening and you can also pack them into the kid’s lunch boxes. my son love to have puffed puris so i take care while rolling,however some don’t, but it does not affect the taste.

2 cups- Whole wheat flour
1/2 cup-Semolina
1 tsp-Cumin seeds/jeera
2tsp-Red chilly powder
2 springs- Curry leaves
1tsp- Coriander powder
1-2 tsp-Sugar,powdered
Salt -As per taste
Oil for deep frying


  • Sift flour into a bowl , add semolina and  all the spices,sugar,salt and Chopped curry leaves.
  • Knead the dough with warm water to form a soft but stiff dough. You can add little oil while kneading the dough to avoid from sticking to the bowl.
  • Let the dough rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Now divide the dough into 15 portions and roll into thick 3-4 inch round disks.
  • Heat oil in a kadai/deep pan and fry all the puris till crisp and golden brown on both the sides.
  • Serve hot with Tea or coffee or you can have it plain like any other snacks.
