  • CrispLid
  • Instant pot
  • Air Fryer


  • 1 cup atta or whole-wheat flour sifted
  • 1 tablespoon oil any oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt or salt to taste
  • ¼ cup warm water or as needed to knead the dough


  • Add the flour and salt into a large bowl. Mix well.
  • Now add oil and mix it well. Break the lumps by rubbing the flour between your palms. Now add warm water little by little and knead a soft, yet stretchy dough.
  • Cover and let the dough rest for 10-minutes.
  • Preheat your air fryer or CrispLid at 350F for 7-minutes.
  • Clean the air-fryer or CrispLid basket and line it with parchment paper.
  • Meanwhile, divide the dough into small balls and roll them into disc-shaped thin tortillas or rotis. Use a round cookie cutter to cut small discs out of it.
  • Place the discs on the air-fryer basket.
  • Cook them for 3-minutes and flip and cook for another 2-minutes.
  • The tiny puris will puff up and look brown around the edges.
  • Transfer the puris to a cooling rack.
  • Use the puris in your favorite chaat recipe and store the rest in an air-tight container.


  • I haven't made these in a conventional oven, so I really can't say if the same process (temp setting) will work for a baked version.
  • I haven't sprayed or brushed the puris with oil.
