Hara Dhania Puri

Hara Dhania Puri is the creation of my imagination. I had this bunch of green leafy coriander in my refrigerator and I desperately wanted to be creative with it. So I started thinking of making some kind of dip which made me further think of something what I can dunk in a dip. And an idea struck why not make puri using green coriander chutney.
Actually I have already prepared the dough and is awaiting its final stage to glorious green munchy snack. I have a great feeling for this recipe coz the dough came out to be beautiful green coloured and tastes gr8 too (I know I tasted it raw ...but I couldn't help it, it looked so inviting).
Now I shall get back to my eagerly awaiting experiment and shall write all about it when I'm done rolling, cutting, frying etc.

Well friends I have some gr8 news, it came out yum, its a lovely golden brown puries with a ting of green shade in it. Smells heavenly too.

So now that is recipe is tried and tasted, I'm confident that this recipe can crunch (I mean melt) anyone's heart who is in visual vicinity of it.

Ingredients :
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4th cup semolina/sooji
5 tbs oil

Oil for frying

Ground to paste
2 cups chopped cilantro/coriander leaves
8-9 green chillies (hotter, the better)
2 tbs sugar
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbs salt (this contains the part of salt to savour the flour too)
1 1/2 tbs lime juice

Preparation Method :

Blend the ingredients mentioned for paste adding 1/4th cup water.
Mix semolina and wheat flour nicely, also add in 5 tbs oil and mix it well until crumbly texture is achieved.
Now add the ground coriander paste to the flour mix and knead a stiff dough, adding little water at a time (if needed).
Cover the kneaded dough in a moist cloth and let it stand for 10-15 minutes.

After the stand off time, Pinch a ping pong ball sized dough and rolling it into a circular chapati. With the help of puri cutter, cut it into small circular shaped puries. Dent this puris with the help of fork. Use all the kneaded dough with the same procedure.


After rolling circular chapati dent it with fork and just cut diamond shaped pieces frm it with the help of a knife.

In a frying pan add oil, enough for deep frying. Fry those lovely green puries till they are golden brown in colour.

These puris can be enjoyed with any dips like salsa or guacamole, chutney or ketchup or as I did with hot cup of tea.

Use these puries to make yummy papdi chaat or delhi chaat .

I shall be storing my batch in nice air tight container and shall use it in many different ways. Of course all different uses and recipes shall be posted duely.
