suruli puri or suruli poori recipe

Karnataka style suruli puri or suruli poori recipe explained with step by step pictures. This is an authentic and traditional sweet and khara recipe from Karnataka. Suruli puri or suruli poori is prepared using maida or all purpose flour, ghee, milk and sugar.

Coming to the name suruli puri, "suruli" translates to coil in Kannada language and "puri or poori" is a common name for deep frid snacks. This recipe is very similar to badam puri and badusha (saat) recipes. The best part with this recipe is you can make it either sweet or spicy. So if you have a sweet tooth go ahead with sweet version. And if you prefer spicy snacks then khara version should be your choice.

This recipe is from my dear Prema chikkamma (aunt). She is an expert in cooking and she is very interested in cooking. She keeps trying new recipes and she prepares in large quantity with ease.
