In a bowl, add buckwheat (kuttu) flour, salt, red pepper powder and thyme. Mix water little at a time to make firm dough.

*Additional Notes*

 

Add water little at a time since buckwheat flour absorbs water very quickly.

Dust bread board with some buckwheat flour. Make small balls from dough of 1-2 Inch diameter and keep placing on flour dusted bread board.

Heat oil in a wide frying pan or electric fryer to 350 F. While oil is heating up, flat the dough balls to 5-6 inch round flat circles.

*Additional Notes*

 

If you do not have thermometer to check oil temperature, add a peanut size dough ball in the hot oil. If ball sizzles on contact with oil and appears of oil surface at count of 5 then Oil is perfectly. If it takes longer then 5 seconds or stays at the bottom, oil is not hot enough hot. If dough ball turns brown very quickly then oil is too hot and it will burn your puris.

Deep fry flat breads in fryer one at a time for around 15-20 seconds each side or till bread appears to be crisp and fully cooked.

Bread generally puffs when it is fully cooked.
