Poori Recipe

Poori is a very common deep fried Indian bread.This recipe would help people who are starting to cook.Super cooks pls excuse me.It is very similar to roti except that it is deep fried and smaller in size.It is definutely part of any Indian dinner menu.

You will Need

  • Two cups of wheat flour
  • One tsp of Rawa or sooji
  • Salt to taste
  • Water to knead
  • Oil to fry and Knead

How to
1.Knead the wheat flour into a thick dough with salt and water and rawa(rawa or sooji helps the poori to remain fluffy for a longer time).Apply oil in your hands to smoothen the kneading.
2.Roll it out into a big roti and cut it out into small circles if you want a perfect circle otherwise take a small ball of the  dough and roll it into a small circle.
3.Heat oil in a deep pan and fry the pooris till golden brown.Let the oil be hot for a crispy and golden colour poori.If the oil becomes very hot adjust the stove accordingly to maintain the temperature.

 4.Serve hot with channa masala,potato masala or any other north indian gravy.

  • You can boil a potato and mash it up along with the dough if you want really soft pooris.
  • Do not use wheat flour for dusting like you do for the roti use little bit of oil to roll it out. Otherwise the wheat flour will get burnt and settle down in the oil.
