Preparation / Directions:
Step 1: Mix thoroughly butter, flour, salt and yogurt in a bowl and then add sufficient water to make dough like that of bread. Knead for a few more minutes and make into walnut sized balls. Flatten the balls into a circle with a rolling pin to about the size of an adult palm and keep aside.
Step 2: In a deep skillet heat oil (about 2 inches deep). When the oil is hot put the puri in the skillet and spoon the hot oil on the puri continually until it puffs up or swells. Gently turn it upside down and repeat until the puri is golden yellow.
Serve with any vegetarian or a meat dish or with jam.
Note: To make a good puffed up puri it is essential that the oil is very hot. But once the dough is in the skillet turn the heat to low otherwise the puri might become brown without cooking well.
Puri goes well with any Vegetable Kormas or Dhansak.
