- Blend the cooked peas using little water to a smooth paste.
- Transfer the paste in a bowl.
- Add wheat flour in the bowl and mix well.
- Using water knead a hard dough. (If the dough is soft, rolling the puris will be difficult and it would absorb more oil while frying).
- Add 1 teaspoon oil to the dough and knead again.
- Cover the dough with a wet cloth and keep aside for 10 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Roll each portion into ball.
- Take a ball, grease with little oil and roll into 3-4-inch diameter circle.
- Heat oil for dep fry.
- In medium heat, add the puri in the oil, press the puri very gently using a slotted spatula and flip it once it puffs up or after 30 seconds. Fry both sides until light golden brown. Oil should be enough to cover the puffed puri.
- Fry all the puris one by one or 2-3 at a time. Drain the excess oil and take them out on a kitchen napkin.
Serve hot with any of the below mentioned side curry.
