Farsi Puri can be termed as Gujarati dish. It can be enjoyed with morning breakfast or as an evening snacks. I am sure everybody will love the taste of it.
In many parts of Gujarat, people perform Pooja of Agnidev on the eve of Saavan saptami /ashtami (7th and 8th day of Saavan). They don’t cook for a day on saptami and have these Puris (Farsi Puri, Maida Puri) and Thepla on that day.
Personally I love the taste of these Puris and would trade many dishes for these. I eagerly wait for the Saavan every year as my Mother in law makes very delicious and tasty Puris.
Below is the preparation part with photo steps,
- In wide plate take Wheat flour and Besan / chickpea flour.
