What is Ajwain Puri?

Deep fried flat bread made with whole wheat flour, having the earthy flavor of carom seeds (ajwain), flaky yet soft, is ajwain puri. Puri is very versatile bread. It can be a breakfast recipe if served with pickle and chai. It can be lunch recipe if served with chana masala and it can also be a dinner recipe if teamed up with a delicious potato recipe and raita. I love having puri. And the best part is that it is such perfect recipe for kids, puri some aloo ki sabji rolled in, makes a great tiffin option for my kids. I make this ajwain puri with chana/chole gravies. Ajwain is an aide in digestion and therefore whenever I make chole I like to combine them with ajwain puri.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Ajwain Puri:

Whole wheat flour: Wheat atta is required to make ajwain puri. This is also why I like puri recipes, discard the fact that these are deep fried, very few ingredients are called for, and wheat flour forms the base. But I know the deep-frying part is tough to be discarded.

Ajwain/carom seeds: Ajwain is a fruit and not a seed. This is just for your information, hasn’t got much to do with the recipe :). It has a very dominating taste. And to maximize the flavor ajwain should be crushed between the palms and used.

Oil: Certainly you know we need oil to deep fry the puri. But it is important to mention here that oil, very little of it, is also added while preparing the dough for ajwain puri. It makes flaky/kasta ajwain puri.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
