This has got to be the best way to start a Sunday! If only we could have the whole (extended) family around to share, and everyone wasn't so neurotic about frying food - still I shall certainly enjoy

Your puris with "AJWAIN" looks soooo good.
I make puris but never with ajwain.
Do you use whole or powdered?

Thanks,
Nazma
