These spicy puris can be served at mealtime or as a tea-time snack. As a variant, you can make crispy puris by pricking them and then frying on a medium flame—you can stock these in jars for your children to help themselves when hunger attacks them between meals! alternatively, you can also bake the puris instead of deep-frying, but make sure you roll them thinly and prick them before baking.
