Important tips to make best puri for pani puri or atta golgappa puri or puchka puri:
First thing to keep in mind is the kneading of dough. While kneading the dough, be sure to knead it well for good 8-10 minutes. This will not only make the dough elastic but also make it smooth. The dough for puri should have medium consistency, it should neither be too soft or thin nor too hard or thick.
Secondly, it is an essential point to follow, please keep the dough covered with damp cloth or tea towel and allow it to rest for 30 minutes. At any point, please do not leave the dough uncovered, else, the dough will become too dry. To fry the atta golgappa puri, please be sure to use fresh oil and not the used ones.
Another important step to keep in mind is, after sliding the puris in while frying, do press them gently with back of ladle. This ensures that pooris are puffed or bloated very well.
At any point, please do not leave the puris unattended in oil while frying. It is an extremely important step to keep the puris moving during this stage, while frying them.
Why does the puri of pani puri (golgappa puri) becomes soggy or soft later?
Okay! So, this the most noteworthy point to follow. There have been lot of queries regarding why does the puri gets soggy and doesn’t stay crisp for long. There are two extremely important things to keep in mind while making puris.
First, we need to roll puris as thin as possible, say around 1-1.5 mm. yes, puri should be this thin. Also, be sure to see that, they are uniformly rolled and do not have any folds in between. I know, this will take some practice, but once you master it, then you will on a roll always. Practice and patience are the two character we need to have for making crisp puris. thickly rolled pani puri will result into soggy puri later.
Secondly, at any stage, please do not fry the puris on low flame. The oil should be very hot first and then reduce it to maintain the flame at medium throughout until we fry them.
If the oil is not hot enough, the puris will soak too much oil and become soggy later.
