Bajra Methi Puri

BM #68 Day 13 - 

If you regularly follow this space, you might have noticed that we, BMers, a group of bloggers are doing a month long blogging bound by certain themes and rules. And we hit the half way mark today. 

It has been a fantastic journey so far and hope it will be just as interesting through the last post of this marathon.

For today, check out a relatively healthy brunch for a lazy weekend!!

Recipe Inspiration from various sources on the web
Ingredients - 

Bajra flour 1 cup
Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Methi leaves chopped 1/2 cup
Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 tsp
Dhania Powder 1 tsp
Amchur Powder 1/2 tsp
Salt, Red Chili Powder and Turmeric as needed
Oil to Deep Fry

Bajra Methi Puri

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except the oil and add warm water to make a stiff dough.

Set the dough aside for a few minutes.

Divide the dough into 15 portions or a small lime sized portion each. On a greased sheet flatten them into slightly thick discs.

Heat oil and gently slide these flattened discs one by one. Use a slotted ladle to fry them on both sides until they puff out. Drain the excess oil from those puris onto kitchen paper towels.

Serve them warm with a sabji of your choice.
