MINT PURI's


Nothing's more refreshing to me than a smell of mint.I dont do much cooking with it though other than make chutney or use it in the masala to make pulao.I buy it thinking this time am gonna try something different with it but end up making the same old thing.I tend to get bored making the same thing again.This time i made up my mind to explore other options and chose to try out mint puri's.This one turned out excellent. No one can hate this unless ofcourse you hate puris or mint. I could smell the mint while frying the puris.Simply irresistable.
Try it you'll never regret it.


INGREDIENTS

Wheat flour(atta) - 2 cups
Mint leaves - 2 cups or more
Oil - 1 tsp
Water - approx. 1 cup
Salt - 1 tsp
Oil for frying



METHOD

First coarsely grind the mint leaves adding very little or no water.Keep aside.In a mixing bowl combine flour,salt and oil.Mix well.Then add the mint leaves.Mix well.Slowly add water and mix until it forms a stiff dough.Knead for a couple of mins.Let it rest for atleast half an hr before making puris.Make small balls of it and flatten it out.Dont make it very thin , it wont puff up.Heat the oil and fry the puris gently pressing with a flat spoon in a circular motion.When puffed up turn over.Lightly brown on both sides.Drain excess oil on a paper towel.Serve hot with peas or potato curry.
ENJOY!!!
