Ingredients to make Rajgira or amaranth puri

  • Rajgira atta 2 cups
  • Potato - 1
  • Rock salt as required
  • Water as required
  • Oil for frying

How to make Rajgira or amaranth puri

  1. Boil the potato. Once cooled down, mash the potato and keep it aside.
  2. Take a mixing bowl. Add rajgira atta, mashed potato and salt. Mix it thoroughly using your fingertips and make a dough out of it. Add just 1 to 2 teaspoons of water
  3. The dough should not be too sticky. If it is too sticky, add some more rajgira atta and knead again. Keep the dough aside for 15-20 minutes. Divide the dough into equal portions and make small round balls out of the dough.
  4. Roll the balls into regular medium sized puris. If you are not able to get round regular puris, just roll into big round puri. Cover with a round sharp lid and break the edges and get a round puri.
  5. Remove the excess flour by patting it with hand. Keep aside for deep frying. Heat sufficient oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Slide the puris gently and deep fry till golden brown.
  6. Once cooked, drain the puris in an absorbent paper to remove the excess oil. Serve rajgira puris hot or warm with aloo gravy, aloo jeera or matar paneer or any vegetable curry.
My Tip: Deep fry the puris on medium heat. If the oil is not hot. it will absorb too much oil and if the oil is too hot, it tends to become dark brown in colour. Rajgira puris tend to be little heavy. So you can have it as a full fledged meal along with a vegetable curry or any gravy.
