Colorful and gluten free rainbow puris are excellent take alongs. Make the dough the previous evening and refrigerate it.. Pull it out at least half an hour before you plan to make the puris. You will be surprised at how quick, easy and great tasting they are. Pack them for a school lunch or even carry them on a road trip. They remain soft for a few hours when placed in an insulated container. If you eat them the next day, then all you do is microwave them for a few seconds and they are as good as freshly made!

Ingredients:

Makes 10-12 puris

Basic Gluten Free Flour Mix – 1 cup (click here for recipe)
Carrots – 1/2 cup, very finely chopped or grated in food processor
Cilantro (Coriander Leaves) – 2 Tbsp, finely chopped
Green Chilies – to taste or optional, finely chopped or red chilli powder to taste.
Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
Oil – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Water – 1/3 cup
Rice Flour – 2 Tbsp, for dusting.
Oil for deep frying

Method:

1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, except water.
2. Slowly add in water as you knead, making sure that the dough is medium soft and smooth. You may need to adjust the quantity of water a little.
3. Knead well—all gluten free flours require extra kneading.
4. Drizzle a little oil on the dough to coat, cover and allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes.
5. Divide dough into 10 balls or more, if you want smaller puris.
6. Place rice flour on a plate nearby.
7. Take one ball, flatten slightly with your palms and dust it lightly with rice flour.
8. Place it on rolling surface and roll with rolling pin into a small round a little thicker than chapattis. It is not necessary to use plastic wrap while rolling puris, the way we do for gluten free chapattis.
9. Roll out each ball separately and place rolled out puris on a clean plate.
10. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small wok.
11. Test for readiness by dropping a small portion of dough into it. It should sizzle and rise to the surface.
12. Carefully slide puri into the hot oil.
13. Press the puri gently into the oil, then move the frying spoon in such a way that the oil from the sides gets poured over the puri, as it cooks and balloons a little.
14. Flip the puri on to the reverse side and allow it to cook in the oil for 10 seconds or so.
15. Flip again and make sure that both sides of the puri are golden brown.
16. Remove from wok and place on paper towel so that excess oil drains away.
17. Repeat steps until all puris are fried.

Notes:
These puris will not balloon as much as plain puris because of the heaviness of the flour.

Our colorful rainbow puris taste so good, you’ll find yourself making a larger quantity for the whole family.
A vegetable accompaniment is not a must. You could try these with a favorite chutney if you wish. But they are great just by themselves too!.
