Tikhat Mithachi Puri ( Spicy Puri)

Tikhat mithachi Puri (called in Marathi) is a spicy version of our favorite Puris. This is my father's favorite breakfast. He just loves how my mom makes this puri. Tikhat mithachi puri can also be a great tea time snack. I hope you also enjoy this dish as much as my family.

2 cups wheat flour
1 tsp red chilli powder
3-4 green chillies
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp haldi/turmeric
Oil for frying

  1. Grind green chillies and cumin seeds together.
  2. Mix following ingredients :                                                           Wheat flour, red chilli powder, green chillies- cumin seeds paste, haldi/turmeric, Salt 
  3. Heat 2 tsp oil and add hot oil to above mixture.
  4. Add water and knead hard dough.
  5. Keep this dough covered for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Make lemon sized balls of this dough. Roll them into small puris.
  7. Heat oil in deep kadhai.
  8. Deep fry puris when oil is hot. When puri puffs up on one side; flip puri to fry on other side. For puris to puff, tap it softly with spatula.
Serve hot with any chutney or pickle. Check out my post for shengdana/groundnut chutney. This chutney and puri makes a fantastic combination.

I am sending this to EC's Tea Time Snack Event.

Preparation time: 30 minutes
