Make small lemon size balls out of the dough. Keep them covered.
Dust the working surface with little flour. Take a ball and roll into round shape. Smear ghee on the surface. Now fold it into half and again half. It should look like a triangle. Then press lightly with the rolling pin. Follow the same procedure for the remaining balls.
Heat oil in a frying pan, dip prepared triangular puris one by one. Deep fry in a medium flame till they become golden brown in color.

When you take out the puris from the oil, dip them in the sugar syrup.
