Methi Masala Poori Recipe – Crispy Fenugreek Puri

This post is also available in: hiहिन्दी (Hindi)

Methi masal puris are a full meal in itself which can be enjoyed with pickles or can even be eaten as a crisp tea time snack. Though masala puris and mathris are commonly made, this snack isn’t made too often as most people wonder if the taste of methi during tea time will go very well. Rest assured, you’ll have a healthier version of the puri once you add methi to it.

The recipe is traditionally made with whole wheat flour just like puris. For a healthier version of the snack, you can even try to make it with a multigrain atta. The only minus in the dish is that it is deep fried so the health conscious may shun away. The only way left to indulge in it is as a special occasion snack which will keep you guilt free.

The masalas you add to the puri can again be customized to your liking. Some like it spicy so add a little extra chilli powder. If you like it tangy then you can add more aamchur powder. But the version that goes best with methi is the one that has a copious quantity of asafoetida or hing. The natural combination of the two flavours make a tasty combination that’s worth a try.

If you are serving it hot, you can almost have the puris on their own or with a simple gravy curry. If you are storing these in an airtight container for a late evening snack, you can combine it with a little pickle for added taste.
