Chilla Puri

Madhuri.Dixit's picture
Chilla Puries are my favorite loose batter dishes. You don't need to make solid doughs like for other Indian breads. You just need to make a batter and spread it on a griddle in a round disc. Quite an interesting job that is ! Try these Chilla Puries yourself and let me know if you like them !
  White flour 4 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Ghee 1 Teaspoon

Put the salt and the flour in a bowl.
Mix, adding the water slowly till you get a very thick batter.
Heat a griddle on a moderate fire, put one teaspoon of ghee on it and pour some batter over it slowly with a spoon.
Keep spreading it with the back of a spoon.
When pouring the batter, commence at the centre and keep filling the circumference slowly till it assumes the size of a round puri.
Then turn and fry the other side.
These puns can be made thin or thick.
If the batter is poured in a continuous line the puri will become thin, otherwise it will be thick.
In Sind, this puri used to be made of red rice flour instead of wheat flour.
