Tajmahal Teekh Rotis / Spicy Puris

Teekh rotis is a must try dish from New Tajmahal Cafe located in Mangalore. I thank my friend, Shyamala Kini for sharing this recipe of teekhrotis aka spicy puris.


2 cups all purpose flour or wheat flour
2 ripe bananas [preferred are mysore variety bananas, if not you prepare using regular banana] 
2 tbsp curd
2-3 green chillies, finely chopped
1/2 tsp cumin seeds/ jeera 
1/2 tsp crushed peppercorn
salt to taste
sugar as per preference of sweetness
Oil - to knead the dough and frying
Water as required to knead the dough


Mash the bananas into a wide vessel. Add curd, chopped green chilly, jeera, crushed peppercorn, 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. 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. Serve it hot with chutney or potato subzi.

Happy Cooking!
