  5. Now divide the dough into small lime size balls.
  6. Dust the rolling board with the flour and the place the puri ball on it and roll it like a puri.
  7. With the help of the fork prick the puri so that the puri does not puffs up.
  8. Heat oil in the frying pan, once hot add the puri to the oil and cook till the puri is gloden brown. Keep the flame on low or else the puri will not become crisp and burn too.
