Mini Sweet Puri's

I was wanting to make Puri's from a long time. But wanted a sweet taste to the Puri's. So I tried making something different and ended up with Mini-Puri's. They are small puffed breads and are coated with a sugar glaze and makes a perfect tea-time snack.



Ingredients:

All purpose Flour - 1/2 cup
Semolina - Fine Sooji - 2 Tbsp
Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup
Clarified Butter / Ghee - 2 Tbsp
Water- To make the dough
Oil - For Frying

For the Glaze:

Water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup

Method:
  • In a bowl,sift the flour, powdered sugar and mix well.

  • Now add the semolina and mix all together.

  • Add the Ghee / Clarified butter and mix well to form a crumbled mix.



  • Add water little by little and knead it into a firm dough.

  • Now make very small balls out the dough and roll out mini - puri's.
  • Make as many as you want and keep it aside.
  • In a pan heat some oil.Once the oil is hot, add the mini  puri's one by one.

  • Fry then until the sizzle from the oil stops and they are light golden in color.

  • Drain out the excess oil by placing them on a paper towel and allow them to cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, add 1/4 cup of sugar to make the glaze.

  • To the sugar add about 1/2 cup of water and heat it.

  • Heat this mixture till the solution thickens to form a string like consistency and take off the flame and allow it to cool.
  • Once the puri's and the glaze liquid have cooled, take a pastry brush and glaze the sugar solution on the Puri's.

  • You can add roasted and chopped dry nuts or dry fruits on these puri's to give it a rich taste.
  • Enjoy the Mini Sweet Puri's.

Notes:
  • You can also use a cookie cutter and make different shapes if you want to. It will be a favorite homemade snack for all the kids.
