As a part of upwaas snack indulgence, made these puris with rajgira flour ( its a flour made from the seeds of a plant ..Amaranthus). Initially I was quiet unsure of the binding of the flour and rolling out the pooris, since its a gluten free flour ..but it turned to be just fine. And I was lazy enough to make the aloo subji , so served them with the Peanut and Yogurt chutney..which was a lovely combo.



  1. Mix together rajgira flour and salt with 1 tsp oil in a bowl. Slowly start adding water to knead a stiff dough.
  2. Pinch small portions of the dough and roll in between greased plastic sheets. Deep fry in hot oil till brown and crisp. Serve hot with white butter and yogurt chutney.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
