For Puri Frying:
1. Take one dough ball at a time and lightly roll it in the dry flour so that it is evenly covered with flour.
2. Then roll it using a rolling pin and make a small 4-inch circle. You can roll all the puris and keep it aside.
3. Turn the heat for the frying pan to medium-high. Allow it to heat up and then carefully slide in rolled puri in the hot oil.
4. Gently press down with a stainless steel skimmer spatula as the puri starts to puff up. Then turn it over and pressing gently, cook until both sides turn light golden brown.
5. Carefully pick up the puri in the spatula, allow the excess to drain out, and then place the Puri in a paper towel-lined tray which will absorb any excess. Repeat rolling and frying the remaining Puris.
