Farsi Puri is a crunchy and delicious Indian bread that melts in your mouth. It takes its name from “Farsi” from a Gujarati word which means crisp. In the past, it was considered an exclusive snack, prepared only during festivals. This fried snack tastes better with sweet and sour mango pickles or with tea and coffee. It is prepared from maida, semolina, black pepper, cumin seeds and other spices and fills the stomach.

Direction Of Farsi Puri
- Sift the flour in a bowl and add the cumin seeds, coarsely ground black pepper and salt to taste.
- Make a well in the flour and pour the clarified butter / ghee in the flour. Mix all the ingredients well.
- Now add water to the dough and knead the dough. I used 1/3 cup of water to kneel the dough.
- Divide the dough into three equal parts and take the first ball and place it on a rolling board and roll it up in a flat disc 11 to 12 inches thick.
- Now apply a little ghee on the puri rolled evenly on all sides. On one side, start rolling it up and do it like a tube.
- Cut the roll horizontally into 1/2 inch pieces. Take a piece and press it with your hand and make it flat and start rolling it like a puri.
- Do this for all parts. Roll it thick like a mathari. Prick all the puris using a fork or knife and set aside for frying.
- Heat the oil in a saucepan and once the oil is hot, fry the puris in batches over low to medium heat until golden.
- Gujarati Farsi Puri is ready to eat.
