Sev puri is another yummy chat, very famous on the streets of Mumbai. I have made my sev puri with flat puris, very similar to the version of thelawalas (roadside eateries) in Mumbai.One more thing, for chats you don’t measure too much in teaspoons and tablespoons..a little bit of eyeballing is required.Just the way the bhaiya (street vendor) on the streets does!
- 1 cup all purpose flour (or maida)
- 1/2 cup semolina (rava)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon oil
Combine all purpose flour, semolina and salt in a mixing bowl.
Add water slowly and knead the dough. Make sure it should not be too hard or too soft.
Cover it with a damp cloth and keep it aside for 20 minutes.
Now divide the dough and make small balls.
Roll them with a rolling pin into circles of about 2 inches diameter.Prick them with a fork so that the don’t puff up.
Heat oil in a kadai. Drop a small piece of the rolled puri to the oil to see if it is ready. Fry the puris in the oil till they are golden brown on both the sides.
You can make the puris in advance and store them in air tight containers.
