      Thanks so much Sahar. For the puri, I use whole wheat dough- to each cup of whole wheat dough, I add a tablespoon of yogurt, a pinch of sugar, salt to taste and a teaspoon of oil and knead the dough with water. The dough is a little stiffer than the roti dough. Knead and keep it aside for half an hour or so, then make the puris.
      Hope that helps.
