Mix the Wheat flour and salt
Add 2 tea spoons oil and mix it well.
Add water little by little and start kneading and make it to a soft dough.
Keep the dough aside for 10 minutes. Divide the dough into small equal balls.
Roll them with a rolling pin to 1/8th inch thickness (do not make it too thin, then the Puri will not be soft).
Also if you want your puri to be crispy and not puffed, use a fork and prick the puri.
Use the wheat flour (dry) where needed to roll.
Rotate the Puri clockwise to get an even round shape
Heat oil in pan to medium heat
Put the Puri in the oil
It will come up well puffed once put it oil.
Do a little press with the spatula in places it does not puff.
Flip to ensure that the other side is also done.
The Puri will take about 30 – 45 seconds maximum in oil for both the sides together.
Remove from oil and drain excess oil on a newspaper or a paper towel
Serve hot with your favorite side dish.
