GARAY CHOKAY JI PURI
(Red Rice Flour Deep Fried Unleavened Bread)
Red Rice Flour – 2 cups
Whole Wheat Flour – ½ cup
Warm water – ½ cup
Oil / Ghee – 3 – 4 tsp.
Oil / Ghee – for frying
In a paat, make a semi-soft dough of the red rice flour, whole-wheat flour, oil and water.
Keep the dough covered with a damp cloth for ½ hour.
Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
Flatten each portion and with a rolling pin, roll out each portion into a 5 – inch disc, using a little wheat flour to do so.
Heat the oil for frying on a medium flame. When hot, add Puris (one at a time) and with a kanch (perforated frying spoon), lightly press down the puris in the kadai, doing this will puff up the Puris. The Puris will puff up only when the oil is quite hot.
Fry on both sides till it is reddish brown in color.
Remove and drain off excess oil. Puris should be served hot and puffed up.
