I was add the water approximately less to 1\4 of the flour and I was made a dough little bit tight so puri becomes soft.

Hi Kaajal,

I tried 2 of your receipes today Masala puri and bharwa bhindi, thanks.

Regarding the puri...I added 1 tblsp haldi .... i think it was too much coz the dough was too yellow, the oil became orange in color while u actually recommend 1 tablespoon ? The taste was good.

The bharwa bhindi is still in the last stages of cooking....again I felt 1 tblsp each of mustard seeds and cumin seeds was too much so added as per taste.

Nonetheless, I find yr receipes easy to follow and the photos are very good.

Thank you for your wonderful sharing with us :-)


Anonymous said...

Hello Nirmala,

first of all thank you for your comment so i can understand, what type of problem arise when people make my recipe. I will try it in better way.

I think you add big tbsp of hladi otherwise, looks my puri is totally in dark yellow color but it is not a big problem with the oil color. Dear don't worry color is change but test is good so enjoy with taste and next time you add only half tbsp haldi and also if think it is too much cumin seeds and masturd seeds than you add less dear...sometimes it happens that different people have different quantity of tempering add in sabzi. ...dear you add as you normally make your sabzi then you feel comfortable for that.

So dear don't worry and be happy......

have a nice day NIramala....

Enjoy your cooking with big smile


Deepika said...

Reem Khan said...

Too good! The farsi puris look so tempting.
Maari mummy ni yaad aavi gayi. My mom also was a fantastic cook and used to make all these things so well. And now my younger sis too, but I hate cooking, But ur page makes it look so simple, will definitely give it a shot.

Have 1 ques - if i want to make sev, farsi puri, suvadi(are u aware of this slightly sweet puri like snack?), can i use the same oil and in which order shud i make these? What if I also want to make gulab jamuns, shud the sweet things be fried 1st?
Congrats and thanx for all ur hard wk and dedication - it makes people like me want to get into the kitchen!!

Thanks for the Recipe but, your measurements are wrong. 6 tablespoons of cumin and ajwain and 1/4 cup of pepper corns is too much for 250g of maida and 50g of sooji. Just to let you know please fix your measurements. Thanks

Thanks for the Recipe, but 6 tablespoon of ajwain and cumin and 1/4 cup of peppercorns is too much for 250g of maida and 50g sooji. Your measurements dont match. Please fix your recipe. All my spices and flour has gone waste. thanks.
