masala puri

These small hot puris are quite tempting and perfect snack with evening tea/coffee during winters specially,as many of may not know about the weather here in australia unlike other countries ,the autumn has already surpassed summer season and soon winter will be taking over ,and now a days autumn is also very chilled with 9-16 c everyday and therefore we are craving for some hot and spicy foods ,these puris are quite common but still i wanted to post as this time i added some crushed garlic and the flavour was awesomely yummy.This goes really well with tea/coffee but i like it with chundas/murrabas too and also we can make and keep for a couple of days and can be taken along during your long train /flight journeys.I remember my mom making these puris with rice kheer ,the combo is very tasty ,you can make circular/regular round puri shapes too but i found this shape very different and attractive..wat say guys ??

ingredients :

1 cup wheat flour/aatta ( regular chapati dough )
1/4th cup besan/gram flour
2 tsp red chilli pwd ( adjust accordingly if using green chillies reduce the quantity )
1/2 tsp turmeric pwd
2 tsp green chilli -garlic paste ( optional )
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
handfull of finely chopped corriander leaves
1.2 tsp asafoetida pwd
salt to taste
1 tbsp hot oil + 1 tbsp oil
oil for deep frying
method :
Combine all the ingredients and knead into a firm dough with little water. Knead well and divide into equal portions. Roll out each portion into rounds . Cut the rounds into quarters .Deep fry in oil till both sides are light golden brown.Serve hot with tea/coffee or with pickes and sweet murrabbas/chundas.
