10-12 puris


  • 1/2 cup fine suji (semolina), if your semolina is of the thicker variety give a few pulses in the grinder to grind it a bit finer
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
  • 1 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
  • 1 chopped green chilli
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp chopped hara dhania (cilantro)
  • 2 medium potatoes, boiled and grated
  • 1 cup atta (whole-wheat flour)
  • Oil for deep-frying puris, as needed
  • Oil for greasing hands, as needed
  • Dry flour for dusting, as needed


  1. In a bowl, combine the hot water and suji. Stir to make it smooth and lump-free. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for 20 minutes.
  2. After 20 minutes, add the jeera, ajwain, red chilli flakes, chopped green chilli, salt, cilantro and the grated boiled potatoes. Mix well.
  3. Add the whole wheat flour little by little and mix in the dough until well incorporated. Knead the dough with oil greased hands until smooth. If the final dough is a bit soft, add a little more atta until a puri-like dough consistency is achieved. Cover the dough and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  4. Take a small portion of dough, dust with dry flour and roll it out into about 4-5 inch round poori. Roll out all the puris.
  5. Fry the puris in hot oil on medium-high heat one by one until they are crisp and golden on both sides.
  6. Serve the aloo suji puris with tomato, onion, mint raita and mango pickle for breakfast or any meal.
