5 Healthy ways to make puri

Are you tired of making the regular wheat based puris and want to know healthier ways to make them? So do read this blog till the end.


Following are some of the easy healthy ways to make puris :


1. Add vegetables:

Vegetables are high in fibre content and help in easy digestion.

They help in lowering blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, and lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar, which can help keep appetite in check.

You can add vegetable puree/grated versions to the wheat flour. Eg beetroot,carrot grated ,green peas & spinach puree. Deep fry till golden brown.

2. Add millet flour: Millets are a powerhouse of nutrients especially micronutrients like calcium,iron,phosphorus. Diseases like celiac disease,arthritis,diabetes,

cardiovascular diseases are kept at bay with the use of millets in the flour.

By adding millets like buckwheat, finger-millet,jowar,bajra to the wheat flour you not just improve the nutritional value but also the taste. Deep fry till golden brown.

3. Add spices: Spices have been a part of our traditional Indian cuisine. In most Indian households, ajwain is added in puris. Spices and herbs have been in use for centuries both for culinary and medicinal purposes. Spices not only enhance the flavour, aroma, and colour of food and beverages, but they can also protect from acute and chronic diseases.There is now ample evidence that spices and herbs possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antitumorigenic, anticarcinogenic, and glucose- and cholesterol-lowering activities as well as properties that affect cognition and mood.

We are blessed with an abundance of spices. So let’s add them to the puri flour. These include cumin seed(jeera) powder, turmeric(haldi),cinnamon(dalchini) powder,coriander,ginger paste.Deep fry till golden brown.

4. Add sprouts:   Sprouts are vegetable foods rich in phytonutrients, such as glucosinolates, phenolics, and isoflavones.

These are rich in plant proteins and important micronutrients like iron,calcium,magnesium etc. They are good for your digestion, helps in weight loss, good for immunity & blood circulation,improves heart health, promotes healthy skin and hair,has anti-cancer properties, You can initially allow it to germinate by washing & keeping it in a muslin cloth followed by boiling it,discard the water(removing anti-nutritional factors), then cool the sprouts and then add them as a filling of the puris. Deep fry it until golden brown.
