Ingredients:

Ø  1 cup kuttu (buckwheat) flour

Ø  2 boiled and mashed potatoes

Ø  Sendha namak (rock salt) to taste

Ø  1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

Ø  1-2 green chilies, finely chopped (adjust to taste)

Ø  Water, as needed

Ø  Oil for deep frying

Instructions:

1.     In a mixing bowl, combine the kuttu flour, mashed potatoes, cumin seeds, green chilies, and sendha namak. Mix well.

2.     Gradually add water while kneading the mixture to form a smooth and pliable dough. The dough should be soft but not sticky.

3.     Divide the dough into small, equal-sized portions and roll them into balls.

4.     Heat enough oil in a deep frying pan or kadai over medium heat.

5.     Place a plastic sheet or banana leaf on your work surface (this will make it easier to roll out the puris without sticking).

6.     Take one dough ball, place it on the plastic sheet, and gently flatten it with your fingers to form a small disc.

7.     Using a rolling pin, roll out the disc into a thin, round puri. Ensure that it's not too thick, as thin puris turn out crispier.

8.     Carefully slide the rolled puri into the hot oil for frying.

9.     Fry the puri until it puffs up and turns golden brown on both sides. Gently press the puri with a slotted spoon while frying to help it puff up.

10.  Once the puri is crisp and golden, remove it from the oil and drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil.

11.  Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls to make more puris.

12.  Serve the hot and crispy Kuttu Ki Puris with your favorite Navratri side dishes, such as potato curry or yogurt dip.

Kuttu Ki Puri is a popular and traditional Navratri recipe that's not only delicious but also suitable for fasting. Enjoy these crispy puris as a part of your Navratri meal!
