  • Heat oil in a kadai or pan. Once the oil reaches its smoking point, carefully drop in the puris. By slowly pressing down on the puri try to work it around the kadai and this way it will puff up. Once brown from one side slowly turn it around and brown it up on the other side. Take it out of the oil and allow it to sit on a paper towel till excess oil drains out.
