Masala Puri

This is my third recipe for this weeks BM under the theme of  Breakfast on the run. Puri s are my husbands all time favorite breakfast. But plain puris with potato curry or Kurma again make a heavy break fast. So for a change I used to make palak puris or methi puris and serve them with rita or pickle. One fine day My husband shared this recipe with me which he used to have in a mess during his college days. He didn't give me a proper recipe he told me what ever he remember. First I made thi spuris with only coriander, mint leaves and garam masala powder. He told me that is not the flavor what he used to get in those puris, then I keep on changing the masalas finely I got the flavor. So here is the reciep for Masala Puri s which is my husbans favorit breakfast.
masala puri 1 INGREDIENTS:---
Wheat flour  ---  1 and half cups
Chick pea flour  ---- 1/2 cup (besan, senaga pindi, kadala mavu)
Coriander leaves  ---- 1/4 cup finely choped
Mint leaves ----   1 tab sp finely choped
Green chilies  ---- 2 finely choped
Spring onion ---- 1 tab sp finely choped
Carom seeds  --- 1 tea sp ( vamu, ajwain)
Cumin seeds  --- 1 tea sp (jilakara)
Nigella seeds  --- 1/2 tea sp (kalonji)
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying.
Water  --- 1 cup
masala poori 1 METHOD:---
1. Take all the ingredients in to  a bowl, add little by little 1 cup water and knead in to stiff dough.
Do not make a soft dough like normal puris because we mixed fresh mint, coriander and spring onion they release some moisture while mixing the dough. So add little by little water and knead the dough.
2. Then divide the dough in to equal sized balls (this measurement gives you nearly 15 balls)
3. Now dust the surface with little flour and roll the each ball in to 4 inch – diameter discs.
4. In the same time heat oil in a deep frying pan and fry this masala puris both sides till golden in a medium heat.
5. Remove from oil and place them on an absorbent paper to remove extra oil and serve hot with sweet curd (mix sugar in the curd) or raita or you can try with dal fry also.
