Crisp yet soft, savoury to the core, the Kand Puri is a mouth-watering way to satiate your hunger on fasting days. It is a quick and easy recipe, which you must try in the winter season when this root vegetable is available in plenty.

You just need to make a dough of boiled and mashed purple yam and rajgira flour, together with peppy spice powders, shape it and deep-fry it.

These puris are to be flattened with your hands and not rolled. They do not puff up as the dough contains yam, and you must make sure you serve the Kand Puri immediately, otherwise it will get soggy.

As it is a fasting recipe, you can use regular salt or fasting salt (rock salt) as per your preference. Likewise, coriander is also optional and in case you do not have it during fasts, you can avoid it.
