2 cups very fine semolina (soji or rava)
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
Mix soji, salt and enough water to knead a soft dough.
Stand covered with wet cloth for 15-20 minutes.
Take a fist sized lump and make a ball.
With the help of some dry maida or soji, roll into big thin rounds.
Cut small puris from it with the cutter. Approx. 1 1/2″ diameter.
You may use a sharp edged lid of a bottle, if the size is alright.
Remove the frills formed and mix into remaining dough..
Heat oil in a pan and deep fry puris till very light brown and crisp.
Keep the puris covered with a moist muslin cloth if there is delay in frying.
Drain and rest in a colander or over kitchen paper for awhile for oil to dry out.
Store in an airtight container when cool.
If in a hurry, just cut the big puris into small squares and use the same.
No dough is then put back in frill form.
