Puri - Indian food or Snack (version 2)
This is an updated version of the previous one. It has additional video footage and background music. Puri (poori, boori), is an unleavened deep-fried Indian bread, commonly consumed on the Indian subcontinent and is very popular in Malaysia. Puri is usually eaten for breakfast or as a snack or light meal and often served with a curry or bhaji, as in Puri bhaji. Puri is also served at special or ceremonial functions as part of ceremonial rituals along with other vegetarian food offered in prayer as prasadam. The name puri derives from the Sanskrit word (pūrikā), from (pura) "filled". Puri also means Bread in Georgian. Puri is prepared with wheat flour, either atta (whole wheat flour), maida (refined wheat flour), or sooji (coarse wheat flour). A dough of flour and salt is either rolled out in a small circle or rolled out and cut out in small circles and deep fried in ghee or vegetable oil. While deep frying, it puffs up like a round ball because moisture in the dough changes into steam which expands in all directions. When it is golden-brown in color, it is removed and may be served hot or saved for later use (as with the snack food pani puri). The rolled puri may be pricked with a fork before deep frying to get a flat puri for chaat like bhel puri. A punctured puri does not puff when cooked because the steam escapes as it cooks.
