Farsi puri recipe | 2 ways layered farsi puri | verki puri | sweet verki puri

Farsi puri is a popular Gujarati farsan made with maida, ghee, and common spices. I share two flavored salted and sugar-coated sweet layered farsi puri in this recipe. Both are flaky and crisp and are generally prepared during the festival season to share with family and friends. It can also be a simple evening tea-time snack.

I have shared a perfect ingredient ratio and a few no-fail tips to help you to make perfect layered farsi puri on the first attempt.

The key to making crispy layered farsi puri at home are
  • firstly, I always recommend using maida (all-purpose flour) for puri dough, because layered puri or varki puri is known for its crispiness and flakiness which can be derived only from maida. But if you want to attempt with wheat then add some rava to it.
  • Ghee or oil should be perfectly incorporated into the flour, so flour should have a crumbly texture and hold shape between hands. Also, Knead puri dough is firm and smooth. I recommend adding water in batches while kneading to keep it under control.
  • brushing with ghee and flour paste gives a nice flavor and crunch to puri. Also, you can vary the number of layers to your choice while preparing layered puri or verki puri
  • lastly, Fry puri in small batches on a medium-low flame. once deep fried, store them in an airtight container for longer shelf life.
