Kajal, I tried this masala puri today and it turned out well. My mom makes masala chapathi too.

My masala puri does not stay fluffy. What is the secret to keep it fluffy?


Kajal said...

Hi Seetha Iyer,

First of all well-come to my blog .
Roll this puri slightly thick and after when you fry, first you put the puri in oil high speed of flame and also take cake front side of puri is put in oil reverse first then it is fluffy and after that you turn another side and cook on medium flame.

We also make masala chapathi but we called it "Thepala" in Gujarati.:)

Thanks for lovely comment my dear.
Have a nice day.:)

Hi Kajal,

How does your puris stay puffed up? any secret?

Kajal said...

Hi Latha,

You make dough little soft not much and rollup slightly think so your puri is also puff and if not then you rest the dough for one hour and after make the puri. Nothing is secret my dear. If you have any more question then ask me with out any hesitation. Thanks my dear.:)
