  • 500 gm Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cardamom
  • 150 ml Water


  1. Add some Salt and Ghee to the Flour and mix well. Then add water as required and make a soft dough.
  2. After kneading well, cover it with a wet cloth and let it rest for 30 mins.
  3. Add Water to Sugar for Syrup and boil it until you get Syrup in string consistency. Then add Cardamom Powder and remove it from the fire.
  4. Make Lemon-sized balls with the dough and roll them into thin, round circles.
  5. Then coat the Puri with Ghee, fold it into the middle, and then repeat the fold and roll into thick circles.
  6. This Puri comes out well whether you roll it thick or thin but they come out crispy if they are thin. If they are thick, they become juicy.
  7. Let the Puris swell in hot Oil and then put them immediately in hot syrup and remove within 30 seconds.
  8. They are hot and juicy. Even after they cool down, the Puris taste so good with a layer of Sugar Syrup.
  9. They stay fresh for a week if they are stored properly in a tin.
