We can book purchase in two ways..
If there is one time purchase or vendor is not a regular vendor, we do not require to maintain its ledger then we can directly book purchases as:

Purchase A/c     Dr.                 1000

      Cash/Bank A/c   Dr.                        1000


But, if we are in reqular business with the vendor or we want to keep a separate record for every purchase vendor we can book purchases as.
Purchase A/c   Dr.                    1000

      Party A/c (Vendor A/c)                    1000

Party A/c (Vendor A/c)              1000

      Bank/ Cash A/c                                1000
