Deep fry the puris till golden brown flipping on both sides. Take them out on a kitchen towel. Let them cool at room temperature.

For chutneys –

Coriander chutney – Wash coriander and mint leaves thoroughly. Add all other ingredients in them. Put them all in a food processor and grind it to a fine paste adding little water. Empty it in a clear glass jar or bottle.

Tamarind sauce – Wash whole tamarind and soak in double the quantity of water for an hour. Pressure cook it with the same water. After a whistle comes on high flame, simmer it for 15 – 20 minutes on low flame. Turn off the flame. Let the pressure comes out on its own. Let the boiled tamarind gets cool. Grind it with the same remaining water in a food processor. Sieve it and throw the residue. Add all the spices, salt and sugar. Mix well. Store in an airtight container.
