Add the AP flour and mix well.

Knead the dough for at least 10 minutes.

The dough must be a tight dough.

In a table/where you are going to roll the puri, apply oil and take dough and roll it to a very thin dough.

Take a bottle cover/cutter which cuts the dough into small round shape.

In oil, deep fry these pooris. They have to puff like balloons.
