Puri is an unleavened flatbread from Indian cuisine that is fried in oil . The soft and very nutritious flatbreads are served warm; traditionally with a spicy curry made from potatoes. Puri is not to be confused with the deep-fried bhatura .
To make puri, flour is made into a dough with water, ghee or oil and salt . After a short rest, it is rolled out thinly in portions and baked on both sides in boiling oil , causing the flatbreads to expand like a balloon. When cooling or piercing, the hot air inside escapes, so that the puri collapse again.
