Just like the kanda thalipeeth and the kothimbir vadi these puris are made with bhajani which is made by mixing various grains and flour.

This is authentic and a famous bread from the Maharashtrian cuisine. Growing up in Maharashtra we had a lot of kondule. My grandma and my mom makes the yummiest kondule. Traditionally it is fried and made with a combination of 5 or more grains and millet.
These little Puris are enjoyed with fresh yogurt, pickle, hot tea and fresh cream or curry of your choice. We usually had it with Loni / Makkhan (Fresh cream derived from the fat accumulated on top of the creamed milk). Also check recipes of veg puff /pattice and cream rolls to be served with tea time snacks.
What goes in kondule
These flat puris are made with a multi grain flour called as bhajani. We add a number of spices to make it flavourful. A considerable amount of oil (moyan) and non flavoured yogurt goes in this dough. This helps the puris to remain soft and crisp.
The multi grain flour used to make is popularly known as bhajani which is made from rice, wheat germ seeds, Jowar, bajra, ragi and lentils like chana Dal and corn (optional). They are lightly roasted and grounded to form a flour. I used the bhajani that my mom made. You can even buy it in any Indian grocery stores.
Storing the kondule
Kondule are fried puris and contain yogurt. Due to which if kept at room temperature they can stay fresh up to 3 days enclosed in an airtight box. If refrigerated they stay good for a week. They taste the best when consumed fresh and hot!
