Tajmahal Teekh Rotis / Spicy Puris

Today's post is a recipe from famous cafe in Mangalore, Tajmahal Cafe. I thank my friend, Shyamala Kini for sharing this spicy puri recipe


Wheat flour 2 cups
Ripe Bananas 2 [preferred are mysore variety bananas, if not you prepare using regular banana] 
Green chilly 1 finely chopped
Jeera 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar as per preference of sweetness
Oil - to knead the dough and frying


Mash the bananas into a wide vessel. Add chopped green chilly, Jeera, salt, sugar and mix it well. To this mixture add the wheat flour, oil and knead into a dough  adding water little by little just like we make for regular puri. No need to rest the dough and you can make puris immediately.

Pinch out balls from it and roll it out into small circles little thicker than regular puris and fry. Yummy teekh rotis/spicy puris are ready. I served it with amrakhand and phova chutney. In a hurry to eat those puris, I forgot to season the phova chutney with mustard and curry leaves. [
Recipe for phova chutney will be updated in future].

Happy Cooking!
