Using the same dough, you can make paratha just like this rajgira paratha.

There are few things you need to keep in mind while working with this gluten free flour. Because it has different properties and nature then our regular chapati atta or maida. So below I have mentioned tips to make this perfect.

There are only selected flours are allowed during the Hindu fast. And this Singhare ka atta is one of them. I do make use this atta in many recipes as mentioned above. This flour can be used in making  sweet potato tikki or farali batata vada.

Chaitra Navratri is going on, So I made this singhare ke atte ki poori and served with dahi aloo recipe. I had these pooris during my childhood days. But the hubby tried it for the first time. He just enjoyed it even though he is not on fast. The first batch I made it was just for me as I knew that he is not going to eat fasting food. But he tried one poori and he wants me to make more. So I made another batch (luckily I had more boiled potato in fridge).

Notes to make perfect singhare ki puri recipe:

  • It is important to mash the potatoes very well and smooth. If there are chunks of potato in the dough and so it will be present in rolled puri. That tiny piece of potato prevents the poori to puff up.
  • While making dough, do not add any water. Always keep little extra mashed potato handy. If dough looks dry then add a tablespoon of mashed potato and knead into smooth dough. If you add water to make dough, It will become sticky.
  • Also this water chestnut flour is gluten free flour, so potato works as a binding agent here. The dough made with water will be crumbly and puri will fall apart.
  • Roll or pat the puri to even thickness. If it is uneven then it will not puff up while frying.
  • Don’t make the puri too thin or too thick, It should be medium thickness.
  • Fry the puris into hot oil. If oil is not hot then puri will absorb too much oil because of potato in it. Also it will not puff up.
