Tips :

  • By grating we avoid having any lump in the dough.
  • Boiled Potatoes already have some amount of moisture,so add Water accordingly.
  • Avoid using dry flour while rolling out puri’s,which can make puri hard.
  • To make crispy puri’ s after they puff up continue frying over low heat.
  • Crispy Puri’s remain puffed up for longer time.
  • Don’t fry your puri’ s in too hot Oil they will get instantly burnt.
  • If temperature of Oil is not right or Oil is less in your Kadhai,your Puri won’t puff up.
  • Don’t over crowd your Kadhai while frying.
