A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Tea Time Puri

Anyone has eaten the Garden Tea Time Puri for some reason I absolutely adore the product, once I start eating it I find it so damn difficult to control myself not to finish the whole packet and hence I have stopped buying it 😦 but everytime I go to a store I stop in front of it and look at it with longing 😉

So one day I thought why not make it at home this way atleast I feel a little less guilty than when I was looking for something to make for MEC – Savory Snacks I came across a recipe from Tarla Dalal which looked somewhat similar so I decided to give it a try… It wasn’t exactly the same but it was yummy anyways, similar very similar 🙂

What I used

  • whole wheat flour – 3/4 cup
  • soya flour – 1/4 cup
  • turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • chilli powder – 1/2 tsp (u can reduce if kids are going to be eating this)
  • coriander seeds powder – 1/2 tsp
  • ajwain seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste

How I made it

  • Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, add the oil to it and mix to get a crumb like mixture.
  • Now add about 1/4 cup or a little more water to make a tight just assembled dough

  • Roll out into a 1/2 inch thick round and cut into desired shape using a cookie cutter or cut into diamond shape using a knife

  • Place them on a microwave friendly plate and microwave on high for about 2-3 minutes

Ready to go

Just out of microwave

Enjoy, my son loved it and gobbled up about 5, I eat a lot too and so did everyone else… I got about 25 or so with the above quantity. I made them yesterday evening and I dont have a single one left right now…

And ofcourse I am sending this to my own event MEC – Savory Snacks originally started by Valli and while we are that friends have u sent your entry yet? Please my dear friends do send the entry

And also to Cooking with Ajwain Seeds being held at Season & Dressed originally started by Priya of Easy and Tasty Recipes

      sorry for not being able to respond earlier i was running madly busy in the weekend 🙂 I think u can but i also think soya adds a bit of nuttiness to it… if u dont like soya try replacing with roasted channa dal powder?
