Notes
* Though Bombay Puris are readily available across India, but if you are unable to find these nearby, its easy to make these at home. The below recipe yields around 20-27 puris, depending upon the size.
Ingredients :
A pinch of asafoetida
1 cup All purpose flour (Maida)
½ tsp cumin seeds/Ajwain (caraway)seeds
2 tsp oil (Ghee is preferred)
Salt to taste
½ tsp Red chilly powder
Sufficient water to make a dough
Oil for deep frying
Method:
Mix ghee/oil with maida together till the mixture looks like bread crumbs.
Add salt, chilly powder, hing, ajwain/ cumin seeds and knead a tight dough using water.Let the dough rest for a while.
Now divide this dough into 2 portions and roll each portion like a roti. Prick all over the surface with a fork.
Dip a circular cookie cutter, or a very small katori or lid of any small bottle in dry flour and cut out small discs from rolled dough and keep aside, well covered!
Deep fry, few pieces at a time, in hot oil,keeping the flame low, so that the puris do not remain uncooked from inside. Drain on kitchen towel and let these cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Stays well for several days at room temperature, if kept away from moisture.
