These are the delectable methi flavoured puries loved by everyone in my family. These are great for breakfast and also as a great snack for tea time. It is also a perfect food to take for long journey as there is no need for any side dishes. I love to have this methi puri with Tomato thokku which I learn from my niece. Recipe for tomato thokku coming soon ;)
In this I have used simple dried kasuri methi leaves which is easily available in super markets. Or else using fresh methi leaves also taste good. Additional of besan gives you a bright colour and nice texture to your puries. Do try this recipe for sure :)


1 Cup Wheat flour

1/ 4 Cup Besan

1 tbsp Rava.

1 1/2 tbsp Kasuri Methi.

1 tsp Chilli pd

1/4 tsp Haldi

1/2 tsp Ajwain

1 tsp Grated Ginger.

3 tsp Oil

Pinch of Hing

Salt to taste.

Oil for deep fry

Water as per needed.


In a big mixing bowl add all the ingredients one by one except water and oil for deep fry. Mix well so that all the masala and methi leaves spreads equally. The amount of water depends on the quality of wheat flour so add water accordingly to make a tight firm dough. Cover and keep it aside at least for 15 min. Divide the dough into small balls. Meanwhile heat oil in a pan\ for deep frying. Now roll the small balls into thick puries and gently slide them into the hot oil. Fry them on both the sides. Drain them on a tissue and serve hot hot.
