Pani puri


      My parents && my cousins...............this is my world till marriage. e people really love to meet at one place for every 2 months. These days it became 6-7 months. Though we are so far we had a lot of communication through internet.
       Six years back one day my cousin son asked her to prepare pani-puri. I was really surprised that my sister can prepare this at home.
       Immediately we started preparations. Every one loves to eat this except my "amma". She never said 'yes' && never allowed me to eat pavement food when i'm young. Finally we all helped her to prepare, everyone was satisfied with the taste except my amma. 
       Few days back my amma and my sister came to my house, we prepared this recipe with some modifications. when they started eating i was eagerly waiting for the result and silently observing the facial expressions and finally finally my amma was satisfied very much with the taste and she wants to prepare it again for my father after going home.

  3. Mix  wheat flour, rawa and salt in a bowl and make a dough adding  water slowly.
  4. Now divide the dough into four portions and roll out and cut it into small puris using any rim or bottle cap.
  5. Heat oil for deep frying. Once the oil is piping hot(reduce the flame to medium) slide the prepared rotis in the oil. Press the puris  with the laddle so that we can get puffed puris.
  6. Once they are fried transfer them into absorbent paper.
