Theek Rotti ~ Spicy Puri

Sunday breakfast at home was always special at home. Amma would make something different than the regular breakfast items. Sunday was reserved for Puri - Kurma/Bhaji, Shevai, Pulav Masala Dosa..etc. Anything other than the normal fare. One such item was this Theek Puri. This is easy to make and can be fixed within minutes and it also does not need any side dishes to go with it. It is also perfect for evening snack with a hot cup of Coffee/Tea.
Here is what's needed:
Wheat flour
1 tsp Chilli powder ( adjust as per taste)
2 tsp Rava/Semolina
1 tsp Asafoetida water/a pinch 
Salt to taste

For Seasoning:
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4 tsp Urad dal
5-6 Curry leaves torn into bits

Water to knead the dough
Oil for deep frying

1) Prepare seasoning by heating little oil. Add in Mustard seeds when they crackle add in Urad dal and fry until pink. Add the Curry leaves switch off.
2) Take some warm water in a bowl to knead the dough. Add Salt. Pour the seasoning into it. Add Chilli powder,Semolina and Asafoetida. Mix well.
3) Add Wheat flour as needed and knead it into smooth dough. It should be harder than the Chapathi dough.  
4) Make small balls from the dough and roll it into Puri's. Fry the Puri's in hot oil. Serve hot.
