I have almost stopped making any deep fried dishes these days. But from my childhood, I have been great fan of anything deep fried. Even though not very often, aayi would make puris, vadas etc and my brother and I absolutely loved them. I miss those days so much. So some times I get a real craving for these deep fried goodness.
So after almost 3 months (last time I ate them when I was in India), I made puris. V loves them with his favorite amras. I had to finish some spinach that was in my refrigerator begging to be used. So I made these very delicious puris and we loved them.
1 cup chopped spinach
1-2 green chillies
1/2 tea spn cumin seeds
Cook in spinach in water for about 3-4mins. Do not add too much water, just add enough for cooking the spinach. Grind the spinach with chillies, ginger, salt and cumin seeds. If required, add the water used for cooking the leaves, but do not make it too watery.
Add the paste to wheat flour and make into a stiff dough.
Roll puris and deep fry them. (More details about making puris).
