Traditional mother’s Puri and of course Beans to go...

As long as I can remember, beans and Puri went hand in hand like rice and dhal. Quick, easy and a simple add on to make. For me, its beans and Puri with seconds and then a greedy helping of rice to finish off the meal…This is the way mum dished and we know don’t argue with mum…. :)


  • 2 cups/500ml cake wheat flour/all-purpose flour

  • 2 tbsp. butter or ghee soft but not melted

  • 1 teaspoon. baking powder

  • 3 tbsp. yogurt (optional)

  • 1/2 cup milk room temperature

  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Sift the flour and baking powder. Rub the butter/ghee Choose what you have available) into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles fine breadcrumbs

  • Add the yogurt and the milk, a little at a time to form a soft dough. Knead for a couple of minutes. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour or if too dry add a little more milk.

  • Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Roll each piece into 2 logs. Cut each log into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a neat ball. Dust a flat surface with flour and roll the dough into circles, about 3mm thickness. The circle should be about 9cm in diameter.

  • Fry the Puri in hot oil on medium heat.

  • Place them on paper towels to drain any excess oil before storing them in an airtight container.

*Best to eat as soon as they are made for best enjoyment
