Puri is an unleavened Indian bread/snack/cookie (??). Very popular in Northern part of India, puri's are best served as a breakfast and lunch item. Puri is very common in our household, as we are from Gujarat and Puri is a must in a Gujarati Thali. However, the one that I am going to show you today is more of a tea-time snack instead of a regular meal item. These jeera (cumin seeds) puri is best when travelling. We made some for my brother and sister in law, as they were leaving for Hajj. These came out so good!!
