What Is Masala Chana Dal Puri?

Traditionally, puri is made with whole wheat flour, but this one is made using chana dal. It is ground to a smooth paste and combined with a host of flavourful masalas. The addition of suji helps make these puris extra soft and fluffy. The taste of chana dal and spicy masalas in the dough gives the puri a unique twist. It is usually served with refreshing raita, aloo sabzi, achaar, or chana masala to put together a wholesome meal.

Once done, strain the water and transfer it to a mixer grinder. Add ginger, jeera, fennel seeds, dried red chillies, black peppercorns, garlic cloves, and water. Grind to form a smooth paste. Now, transfer this paste to a plate and add Kashmiri red chilli powder, hing, haldi, coriander powder, garam masala, salt, and crushed ajwain. Mix well. To ensure they remain fluffy, add semolina (suji), oil, and crushed kasuri methi. Combine everything together and add coriander leaves.
