  • Gather the sides together and roll it into a ball. Then flatten this stuffed dough and roll it into puris.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan to deep fry the puris. Slowly drop in the flattened puris in the hot oil.
  • Deep fry the puris until golden brown. Drain and take it off the heat. Continue the same process for the rest of the dough and stuffing.
