Baked Whole Wheat Methi Puri

Honestly, I never had this Methi puri before. But when our FB group Healthy Wellthy Cuisine decided Healthy munchies for this fortnight theme, I decide to try something from the book I won from contest in Tarla Dalal site years ago.Ya, you heard it right. I used to post in India’s most renowned cook Tarla Dalal’s site before I started blog of my own. I participated in one of the online contests and to my surprise I won Tarla Dalal’s Healthy Snack Cookbook. But I didn’t try any recipe from it..Shame on me..right? Not anymore. This time I tried Baked Whole Wheat Methi Puri and more recipes from the book are on their way.

Book I won In contest

The Methi Puris are two types, the puffy fried one had as  breakfast and the crispy ones had as a snack. I’m here posting the crispy snack variety. Usually they are deep fried but we are going to bake it as we are into healthy snacking..haha.

How did I make Baked Whole Wheat Methi Puri

As I said I adapted this recipe from Tarla Dalal’s book, I do adjusted and tweaked a  bit for our taste preference. There is no hard part in making this except keeping your hands off the puris after made.

Just mix all ingredients in a bowl to a dough. Roll it out and cut it as you do for cookies. Then bake it till crispy that usually takes 18- 20 minutes depending upon the oven.Yummy,crispy,methi puris are ready to munch on. Once cooled down completely, store it in air tight container. If stored properly,will stay good for about 2 weeks.
