BM #92 Day 15  - 

O for Oats Puri. I made a baked version of the puris to present a healthier version. I am sure the deep fried puris will be richer. 

I pulsed the rolled oats into fine powder and proceeded with the recipe. These make a fantastic snack. I served them as the base for Dahi Papdi Chaat.

Recipe Inspiration here
Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup
Oats Flour 1/2 cup
Salt, Red Chili Powder, Kasuri Methi, Chaat Masala as needed
Sesame Seeds  1 Tbsp
Butter 1 tsp
Oil for greasing

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour and oat flour. Add in the salt, red chili powder, kasuri methi, chaat masala, sesame seeds and mix well.

Rub in the butter into the flour mixture and add water to knead into a stiff dough. Cover and set aside for a few minutes.

[For regular puris, pinch out equal portions of the dough, flatten them out as 3 inch discs, heat oil and gently slide them into the oil, fry on both sides and drain onto paper towels.

But if they need to be baked, the process is slightly different. ]

Pinch about 14-15 equal portions of the dough, roll them well. Between two well greased plastic sheets, press them to flatten them evenly.

Using a fork, make impressions on them so they don't puff out. Arrange them on a parchment lined baking tray.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F.

Bake for about 17 minutes, flip them and bake for a further 5 minutes.

Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool. They become crispy upon cooling.

Serve them as preferred or just munch them away with tea.
