It is a savory flatbread made with whole wheat flour, black lentils (urad dal), and spices such as cumin and black pepper. Bedmi puris are usually served with sautéed potatoes or aloo curry. For a homemade version, the bedmi puris can be made by first mixing together the wheat flour, black lentils, cumin and black pepper. Then, a dough is formed with water and kneaded until it reaches the desired consistency. From there, small balls of dough are rolled out into flat rounds which are then deep-fried in hot oil until golden brown. Enjoy your homemade bedmi puris with your favorite sides!

How to make Bedmi Puri 

  1. Take one cup of skinless urad dal and add it into a ceramic non-stick frypan. On medium heat toast the dal thoroughly for a few minutes.  
  2. Once the dal is toasted perfectly, add it to a bender and blend it till it forms a fine powder.  Add the blended dal into a large bowl and add whole wheat flour into it as well. 
  3. To the bowl add toasted fennel seeds, coriander powder, red chilli powder, turmeric, cumin seeds, salt and ghee. Mix it all together ensuring to incorporate the ghee thoroughly into the flour as well.
  4. Add water and knead the dough into a semi-soft dough. Divide the dough balls into even sized portions and roll them into a perfect ball without any cracks. Roll each dough ball in a flat round puri using a little ghee. 
  5. Deep fry the rolled out puri into hot oil on medium high heat. Dip the puri using a perforated spatula lightly to help it puff up into a balloon like bread.   
  6. Serve these crispy and brown puris with your favourite sabzi.

Expert Tips

  1. The urad dal is toasted beforehand to remove as much moisture as possible before blending it into a powder.
  2. While making rounds of portioned dough, make sure the surface is smooth or the puri might burst open once rolled.
  3. Make sure the oil isn't too hot or the puri will turn black really quickly.
