Prep time: 30 mins | Cook time: 20 mins | Serves: 3-4
GOLGAPPA DOUGH :
- 1 Bowl Fine Flour (Maida)
- 2 Bowls Semolina(Sooji)
- Warm Water
- 1 Spoon Oil
STEP BY STEP GOLGAPPA DOUGH:
- Take a big bowl or plate or Paraat. Pour 2 bowls of sooji or semolina and 1 bowl of maida or fine flour in it.
- Mix them with the help of warm water. Mix it thoroughly, The dough will be sandy at first, but as you add warm water, it should start to pull together to form a dough ball.
- Be sure not to add too much water directly, otherwise your dough will be sticky and you won’t be able to roll it out. (When you are going to Make puris for golgappa.)
- Once dough ball has formed, Knead it and form a stiff dough.
- Now add 1 spoon of oil in it and knead the dough again. The dough should be firm and not too soft to touch.
- There should not too much moisture so that it puffs and crisps when deep fried.
- When done, cover the dough with damp cloth and let the dough rest for 15 – 20 minutes.
GOLGAPPA PURIS ROLL AND FRY:
STEP BY STEP GOLGAPPA PURIS ROLL and fry:
- After 15 – 20 minutes, divide the dough in equal parts and make balls. (here, divided in 6 parts in video)
- Now take out the first ball of dough and roll it with rolling pin with equal pressure on each side of puri. Be sure not to roll the dough too thin. If it’s too thin, holes will develop or the dough will stick at chapati block. The remaining balls must be covered with the damp cloth.
- When a puri of chapati is ready, cut out the round discs from it with the help of sauce bottle cap or biscuit cutter.
- Arrange the round discs on the paraat, and cover them with damp cloth. Now one by one, take and roll (1-2 times) round discs with the help of rolling pin as in video and spread them on plate.
- When the all round discs rolled out of one ball(one of the 6 parts of dough), set the flame of gas to medium and heat the oil or ghee for deep fry. When oil is ready or hot, place the golgappas and fry them on one side till the golden brown in color. Take them out on absorbent paper or tissue.
