For the dough
Wheat flour - 2 cups
All purpose flour / maida - 1/4 cup
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Milk - 1/4 cup
For the filling
Coconut - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cashews - 10
Cardamom powder - 1 pinch
Knead the dough by mixing the wheat flour,maida,salt and milk.Add a little water if needed..The dough must be elastic..
Mix all the ingredients for the filling together..
Make small balls using the dough and roll them out into circles using a rolling pin.The edges need to be thicker than in the center.Place a tablespoon of the filling in the center and bring the edges of the rolled out dough to the center to form a dumpling.Roll it out again carefully to form a disc of about 5 inches diameter.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan..Once it is piping hot,deep fry the puris in the oil till both sides become golden brown..Drain in paper towels..
The puris need to prepared immediately after rolling out..The filling consists of sugar and coconut and hence it gives off water..
This can be relished immediately or after sometime..
