Farsi Puri

Farhi Puri is crispy flat bread. These puris are kids favorite homemade snack and I love these puris with my Indian tea. I also love to take these puris during long trip. You can prepare these puris simple or layered. Below you will see video for prepareing with layers. Those layered rolled puris are known as Banana puris where I grew up. No banana really in this recipe but just may be because of the shape it gets, it is called Banana puris. You can make these puris with different flavors as well such as dry methi leaves are used to flavor it up.
