Singhare Ki Puri | Vrat ki Puri is made during fasts or vrats in North India using just gluten-free flour and some other basic ingredients and spices. These puris (flatbreads) turn out so yummy and absolutely melt in the mouth soft. We can use water-chestnut flour (singhara atta) or buckwheat flour (kuttu atta) or barnyard millet flour (sama or samo atta) and amaranth flour (rajgira atta). 

These Singhare Ki Puri | Vrat ki Puri can be served with any curry which is not made using garlic and onion. Or you can have these puris on their own too as they have a lovely flavor coming from some spices that are added to the dough.

I have paired the Singhare Ki Puri | Vrat ki Puri with some delicious tomato and potato curry (aloo tamatar ki sabzi) and a small helping of plain yogurt spruced up with a bit of homemade roasted cumin seasoning and some fasting salt (sendha/ vrat ka namak). You can even serve them with sweet yogurt or with some jaggery too.

We can serve them with vrat ka Kadhai Paneer. It is easy to make too and has a great flavor that will go so well with these puris. I have used potatoes to bind the dough as the flour is gluten-free. the flour is easily available in any supermarket or maybe online stores too.

Let us begin with making the dough. Then we will proceed with the curry too.

For the Singhare Ki Puri | Vrat ki Puri dough

In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except the water. Give everything a good mix with your hands. The mashed potatoes will add a lot of moisture to the mixture. You will need a very small quantity of water to make the dough. Make a smooth dough. Grease the dough with some ghee and set it aside for 15 minutes.

grease your palms with some ghee and divide the dough into 6-7 equal parts and roll them into balls. Dust each ball with extra singhare ka atta and roll them out. Use any cookie cutter or round object to cut out perfect circles.
