The measurements are metric, sorry for that, but I hope you can convert the amounts.
130gr whole wheat flour
120gr white flour
variation: several spices (1-2 tbsps each of chili powder, cumin,
turmeric, etc. to taste, mixed
into the flour mixture)
1/2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp (peanut)oil
1 1/2 dl hot water
oil or ghee to fry
Sift the two flours into a bowl, add salt and rub the tbsp of oil in using your fingers. Slowly add the water, while kneading for about 8 minutes. The dough should then be not sticky and rather elastic. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for at least 30 minutes to 2 hours max. Divide the dough in about 15 pieces of equal size and roll them on a lightly greased board (do NOT use flour as this will burn in the oil). Try to make them round and rather flat.
Heat the oil to about 180deg. Celcius and carefully slide a puri in, one at a time. Gently push it down using a spoon – within seconds the puri will blow itself to a bowl. Bake until the underside is golden brown. Turn and cook for 30 seconds. Take the puri out of the oil and let drain. Repeat until all puris are baked.
Serve hot to a vegetable meal and/or with chutney, mushed apples, honey or cheese.
Enjoy your puris.
