Chat puri or papdi puri is a crispy deep-fried flat disc snack made with all-purpose flour (maida) and spices. it is generally used in various chaat recipes or served as evening snacks. In this recipe, I share a new technique of frying papdi puri which is a quick and easy way to make puri in quantity. It also has a very long shelf life and can be stored in an airtight container for months. Do try this!
- Firstly, I made papdi puri dough with all-purpose flour, but you made it half wheat flour and half maida.
- Secondly, Roll the puri’s should be slightly thinner than a normal chapati or rotis. this would help in attaining a crisp texture. also, do not forget to poke with a knife before deep frying.
- Lastly, Fry puri on a medium-low flame. Once deep fried, store them in an airtight container for longer shelf life.
