Papdi recipe


In a bowl, mix together ghee and baking soda. Then add maida, sooji, ajwain, salt and knead into a firm but smooth dough adding water little at a time. Keep it covered for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, roll it out into a big circle dusting a little flour.(pic-2)
Using a fork, prick holes all over the circle.This is done to prevent the poori from puffing while frying.
Then cut it into small circles using a bottle cap or cookie cutter. Remove the extra dough from the sides of the circles, knead again and repeat the same process. Keep all the circles ready in a plate dusted with flour.

Heat oil in a kadai and deep fry the papdi in batches.Fry both sides until golden brown.
Remove from oil and  keep it in a colander to drain excess oil. Repeat the process for the rest of the papdi.
After it cools, store in an airtight container.
