How to make Dahi Methi Puri Recipe - Fenugreek Leaves Puri With Yogurt
To begin making Dahi Methi Puri Recipe, we will first make the dough.
In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour along with methi leaves, salt, cumin seeds, ajwain and mix well to combine.
Next bring the dough together with the curd to make a smooth and soft dough. If required, use a little water, if the curd is not enough to make a soft dough.
Sprinkle a few drops of oil and smoothen out the dough. Make equal portions of the dough, similar to the size of a lemon.
Dust each portion of the dough in flour and flatten using a rolling pin to a 3 inch diameter of medium thickness.
Preheat oil in a kadai on medium heat, gently slide the flattened Dahi Methi Puri into the kadai, and gently fry the puri with a slotted spatula, continuously yet gently pouring oil onto the puri, allowing it to puff up.
Flip and cook on the other side for about 30-40 seconds. Remove from the kadai and place on an absorbent paper, to drain off the excess oil. Serve Dahi Methi Puris hot.
