Wheat Puri

Hello everyone! With the auspicious occasion of paryushan having started we prepare a variety of sukha nashta or side breakfast dish as we avoid eating outside food items. This puri recipe is a standard breakfast recipe we make. We eat these with our traditional achar known as chunda which is made using raw mango and sugar. You can have it with tea or coffee. So let’s get cooking….


Wheat flour – 2 cups

Gram flour/besan atta – 2 tbsp

Maida/Refined flour – 1/4 cup

Oil – 2 tbsp

Ghee/ clarified butter – 1/2 cup (lukewarm)

Cumin/Jeera – 2 tbsp

Black Pepper/Mari (whole) – 2 tbsp

Salt as per taste

Water for kneading


1. Roast the cumin and black pepper for few seconds. Now semi crush them using a crusher or in pulse mode in the mixture. Do not make it in powder form.

2. In a big bowl mix all the above ingredients alongwith the semi crushed cumin and black pepper, except water, and mix it well. Now knead using water. It should be a hard dough. So be careful while adding water and knead using little water at a time.

3. Once the dough is ready cover it and keep it aside to rest for 15 mins.

4. After 15 mins knead the dough again and make it smooth. Make very small roundels out of this dough. Now you can either roll these using a roller into small discs/puris or you get a press machine in which you can directly place the roundels and press it into a flat puri. Make all puris this way. Using your nails make small marks on the puri so that they do not puff on frying.

5. In another kadhai/wok take oil. Let it become warm on medium flame. Once warm add the puri 3 to 4 at a time and fry them by lightly pressing them from both sides. It is necessary to press the puri while frying so that it becomes hard and is cooked inside properly. You have to fry on medium flame.

6. Fry all the puris this way and store them in an airtight container. These puris will last upto 10 to 15 days.

  1. My neighbor always gives it to me whenever she makes it; everyone at my house enjoys it. Thank you for sharing it; I’ll give it a shot.


  2. Crunchy and homemade, wow.. It looks like store bought Puris. It is really good option for me as my daughter used to munch biscuits. Instead of the biscuit this puri is healthy. Thank you for the recipe.


  3. Wheat puris sound more healthy than the maida ones. I will surely give this recipe a try.


  4. The puris look really crispy. We also make atta versions of the mathris and papris at home. Adding the besan is a great tip. Thanks for sharing the recipe.


  5. Wow a super easy recipe you shared and I loved it because checking the recipe I am confident that I can make it. The second reason of liking this post is that my husband will love it. I have all the ingredients at home and tomorrow is Sunday and I am going to make it tomorrow. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe

  9. Wow!!! Just the perfect snack to prepare this lazy Sunday at home. With the whole fam just ready to munch anytime of the day, this easy and delicious snack, is a real go-to! Love it!


  10. I never tried this, Shail. It is a bit like mathri but it’s different 🙂 Problem is I have no one to eat and I don’t eat fried. But will surely try it out.


  11. This puri is a favourite nashta in our home but the ingredients are slightly different. We add rava and don’t add besan to it. It’s super yum and perfect with tea.


  12. Such mouth-watering pictures! Definitely will try this one because work from home is making me snack an awful lot!


  13. This is quite a good snack. I feel baking might take care of the deep fry oily stuff.


  14. I have never tried these before. They look a lot like papdis. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I am eyeing that chunda too. Excellent combination.


  15. My Mom prefers making Wheat puris then Maida puris. And they taste amazing


  16. Hot hot savaries.. I love it. I also makes it but just with wheat. I don’t add besan. Would love to try it your way.


  17. This looks so delicious! And since it’s made at home, it’s healthy too! The best part about festivities is the delicious special food we get to eat!


  18. This is one the healthy recipe we also prepare at home on festivals it’s really crunchy and goes best with tea


  19. My aunt used to make this during festivals. Your post reminded me of the old days.


    1. Mom used to make something similar whenever she made puris. We used to use a knife to mark on the dough so it remains flat and crisp. This is a bit different….nice to try out with my coffee.


  20. This looks delicious and sounds healthy, and I am sure it will perfectly accompany our evening tea.


  21. Wow this is unusual but looks good!
