Farsi Puri Recipe
Farsi puri is a crispy deep fried Gujarati snack. Do have a look at our collection of Gujarati Recipes. Farsi means crisp in gujarati. Generally, farsi puri is made using maida/all purpose flour. But, we have used maida and whole wheat flour in equal proportions.
There are two ways in which you can make the puris – You can divide the dough into equal small balls and roll out each ball into small puris. Alternatively, you can divide the dough into 2-3 big sized balls, roll out into a big round and then cut the puris in desired shapes using cookie cutter or small sized steel bowl.
These puris can be stored easily for 15-20 days. So you can pack them and take them along for your picnics.
