Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
Oil for deep frying

Mix kuttu ka atta, cumin seeds and salt. Add water to make a smooth and pliable dough. Cover and leave to rest for 10 minutes. Divide the dough into lemon sized balls using little oil on your palms. Take a ball and roll it into a circle (dough ball can also be patted with wet hands to form a puri). Roll all the balls and keep ready for frying. Heat oil in a kadai. Place one puri at a time in the kadai and press it with a slotted spoon in the center so that it puffs up. Turn the puri and fry till light brown and crisp.
