Puri

This puri recipe is perfect for serving along with a side of chana masala curry. Make your own homemade puri recipe with this easy-to-follow and simple recipe. Desi breakfast is served!

Anyone from Pakistan or Indian will know of the classic desi breakfast of fluffy, warm puri with a side of chana masala and halwa. Breakfast in the UK just isn’t quite the same!

If you haven’t had this traditional breakfast, then you are missing out. With this recipe, you will need to look no further. Give it a go and before you know it cereal, and toast will be in your long-forgotten past.

Puri, otherwise known as poori, is a popular Indian deep-fried puffy bread usually made with whole wheat flour (chapatti flour). However, chapatti flour isn’t something that people always have in their pantries, so this recipe offers an alternative by using plain flour. It will taste just as good and delicious!

Usually served for breakfast, this puri recipe is a versatile accompaniment for lunch and dinner as well. Turn the dinner savoury by serving the dish with side dishes such as chana masala, sabzi, or even dal. Alternatively, this puri recipe can also be eaten with sweet dishes such as suji halwa or kheer.

Everyone has their own recipe for this recipe. Some people like to add sugar to the dough. This helps to create a golden-brown colour. Some recipes add semolina which makes the puri crispier. However, I have kept my recipe simple just like my mother used to make it!

Poori, or sometimes known as puri, is a popular Indian bread made from simple ingredients. This basic puri recipe is one of the well-known breakfast dishes enjoyed all over India and Pakistan.
