Tips :-

  • If you are making lots of Puri’s at once cover the once already made with damp cloth otherwise they won’t puff up in hot Oil.
  • If the sheet is too thin your Puri’s won’t puff up and if sheet is thick though Puri’s will puff up but they will get thick and hard on one side.
  • If the Puri’s are fried in too hot Oil that is more hot than required then the Puri’s will become flat like Papdis.
