1 cup wheat flour
1/3 cup mango puree
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
salt to taste
water according to the dough
oil to fry
firstly, take a wide bowl, add the wheat flour. make a well in the center and add the mango puree. sprinkle the cardamom powder and salt.
first, crumble the puree and flour .then, bind together. if it is too hard then add a spoon or two of water to make a smooth dough.
set aside to rest for 30 mins. the puri will puff up more if the dough is allowed to rest longer.
the dough should not be very soft. but if it is, and you are unable to roll the puris, dust a little plain flour on the rolling pin so that you can roll comfortably.
next, make small balls with the dough and roll into small discs. you can even apply oil on the balls to make the rolling easy.
meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan. check if it is heated well but not smoking hot.
keep the heat on medium and add one disc at a time.
you can add more if you have a large enough frying pan and can handle frying them fast. adjust the flame so that the puri puffs up just right.
the puri will rise and then if you press a perforated ladle, the puri will puff up nicely. flip it over for even frying.
cook until golden on both sides. drain on a paper towel.
serve the juicy mango puri | deep-fried mango bread hot with pickle or curry.
i served it with fresh guava and mint chutney and the combo was an explosion of subtle flavours in mouth.
