Carrot Puri

Carrot Puris are typically made by either adding grated or pureed carrots to wheat flour. The recipe that I am sharing today is what I learnt from my Mother-in-Law.

I loved the fact that this method is a lot different than the usual recipes. In the below recipe, carrots are cooked in milk and then blended with  wheat flour.

The sweetness of the carrots paired with spicy onion-coconut raita (video recipe mentioned in the end) makes this dish delectable 🙂

Do give it a try!

Cooking time: 20-25 mins

Makes: 30-40 puris


Carrots – 4

Milk – 1 cup

Ajwain – 1 tsp

Whole wheat flour – 3 cups (or as much as needed for the carrot and milk mixture)

Salt – as per taste


Pressure cook the carrots with 1 cup milk.

In a large mixing bowl, mash the pressure cooked carrot with milk. Mash coarsely.

Next, add the ajwain and salt. Mix well.

Add  wheat flour at intervals and knead well to form a soft pliable dough.

Take small portions of the dough and roll it into puris using a press or a rolling pin.

Heat oil in a deep fried pan and fry the puris till golden brown.
