  2. Heat the  oil,roll the dough into lemon sized balls ,roll them  into thick  small discs like that  of normal   puris about 3-4 inches in diameter and  slide each puri into hot oil and deep fry.
  3. Use the slotted spoon to deep fry and fry on both the sides until they get puffed.
  4. You have to slightly press the puris in the centre with the slotted spoon once you drop puris into hot oil so that they puff..
  5. Don’t roll the puris too thin,it will turn hard and crisp.
