Puri Bhaji Recipe
Puri is a common breakfast dish available in all South Indian restaurants. Puri dough is made with whole wheat flour, semolina, salt and then deep fried till puffed and slightly crisp.
To go with the poori, usually the best combo is Potato Masala, which is made with smashed potatoes along with onions and spices. Here, I am sharing Potato Masala curry recipe too.

- For Puri:
- Wheat flour - 3 cups
- Rava /semolina -1 tsp
- Salt to taste
- Water - 1 1/2 cup
- Oil - 1 tsp (for kneading dough)
- Coconut oil - 4 cups (for frying)
- For Potato Masala Curry:
- Potato - 3 nos
- Onion - 1 large (thinly sliced)
- Green chilly - 4 nos (sliced)
- Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
- Curry leaves - 1 string
- Mustard seed -1/4 tsp
- Coriander leaves - few for garnishing
- Coconut oil - 1 tsp
- Hot water - 1 cup
Method for Puri preparation:
Take a bowl add wheat flour, rava, salt and mix well. Add water at a time to form a dough, knead well with hands or by food-processor.
Once the dough is made, add 1 tsp of oil and knead well. Cover and allow the dough to rest for about half an hour or at least 10 minutes.
After half an hour, knead the dough once again. Divide the dough into balls. Flatten each ball and roll it out into small circles with thin-medium thickness.
Heat the oil in a deep pan, wait until it is hot. To test the oil, drop a small piece of dough, if it is hot it will float up immediately bubbling as it comes up to the surface.
Now slowly slide the poori from the side of the pan into the hot oil. Deep-fry the puri until golden brown.
When it puffs up, turn it once on the other side. Fry for a minute and remove.
Serve hot with potato masala .
Method for Potato Masala curry preparation:
Boil water in a hard bottomed vessel along with some salt. Add clean halfed potatoes and cook till they are soft or you can pressure cook them for 3 whistles or microwave them for 10 min or so. Allow them to cool and peel them. Mash them with a big fork or masher.
Heat coconut oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, curry leaves and fry for a minute. Add sliced onions, green chilly, turmeric powder and cook for 5 minutes until they turn little soft.
Add in the mashed potato, salt, hot water and mix well. When it comes to a boil cover and cook it on a low flame for about 10 minutes.
Finally turn off the heat and garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with puffed up puris.
