1 cup atta (wheat flour)
1 table spoon oil
3-4 tsps chilli powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1 -11/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp ground cumin
4-5 tsps ajwain (carom)
salt to taste
water to knead dough
kadhai and oil to fry puris in.
1) Mix all ingredients and knead in a dough. Not too stiff and not too soft. Just soft enough to squeeze it with your finger and stiff enough to not let it stick to your finger.
2) Heat oil in a pan at medium to low heat for frying.
3) Roll out little round puris.
4) Fry at medium to high heat.
Yes its that easy.
Variations: When you roll out the puris, you can make tiny slits in the rolled out dough with a knife. This will give it a crispy chip-like texture. The more slits you make, the crispier it turns out. The soft texture puris can be matched up with pickles, onions, and even subzis while the crispier version can be munched anytime, anywhere!

A Note to Remember: Good cooking is more about using the right ratios than using the right quantities. Each hand its own dish! Eat away!
