Puri (Deep Fried Bread)

This recipe was introduced to us by Donna, she always made it at home but I always forgot to post it here. She said this is an Arabic food bur when I search its name in the net, I found out that it is one of Indian foods, anyway,most of Arabic foods were originally from Indian cuisine. At first, she just only made little of it since we might not like it but when we tried the bread, wow, it’s really good and my hubby always requesting her to cook it again.

Puri is an unleavened deep fried puffed bread made of flour dough, butter/oil and salt, yeah, as simple as that and it is very yummy especially when warm. You can eat it as it is or served it with noodles, jam, meat or anything. Sometimes we ate is as our snack but yesterday we served it in breakfast with Spaghetti ala Pancit and it was really good. Never mind about the calories, forget it, just eat! lol 🙂


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Water
Salt to taste
2 tsp. vegetable oil or melted butter
Vegetable oil for deep-frying

1. Sift the flour and salt together. Add 2 tsp.oil or butter and mix well.
2. Make a well in the flour mixture, add cold water and knead into a hard dough.
3. Divide the dough into 20 equal-sized balls and place them on a lightly floured surface. Cover with a kitchen cloth for 10 minutes.
4. Flatten each ball between the palms to make a disc. Roll out each of them to form a 12 cm disc.
5. Heat the oil in a skillet, deep-fry the discs until they puff up. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
