Farsi puri recipe | methi farsi puri | jeera farsi puri | Gujarati farsi puri recipe

Farsi puri is a popular Gujarati farsan made with maida, rava, and regular spices. In this recipe, I share two flavored methi and jeera farsi puri. 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 or kids’ snack recipe.

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

The key to making crispy farsi puri at home are
  • Ghee or oil should be perfect for incorporating into flour, so flour should have a crumbly texture and hold shape between hands.
  • Knead puri dough is firm and not soft like chapati dough. I recommend adding water in batches while kneading so to keep it under control.
  • Roll the puris should be slightly thicker than a normal chapati or rotis. this would help in attaining a crisp brittle texture. also, do not forget to poke with a knife before deep frying.
  • Fry puri in small batches on a medium-low flame. once deep fried, store them in an airtight container for longer shelf life.
