Protein packed Puris

Generally during weekends we take light dinner. But this saturday my son wanted to eat puris. I had some daal from lunch leftover. I wanted to use it up. This is how I used it.

Daal Puri


1 Cup Whole wheat flour/Chapati flour, I used Nature Fresh
1/4 Cup Soya Flour,
1/2 Cup Chana Flour/Besan
1/2 Cup leftover cooked dal (any dal), I used masoor dal.
Salt to taste,
Oil for deep frying.


Mix together all the flours, salt & dal.
With minimum water knead into a semi-soft or chapati like dough.
Divide the dough in golf size balls.
Roll the puris.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan.
Fry the puris.
The puris turned out extremely crispy.
Maintained the same crisp till next day.
Serve with any curries or anything u like.
I served mine with Shrikhand & Aloo Gobhi, I will give the recipe some other time.

The Puris soaked very less oil as compared to the normal puris we make.
U can use any dal that's leftover with u even tadka dal.
I have not tried it with Makhani Dal yet if any one has tried pls. let me know how it tastes.
