Poori recipe

Today I am going to share the recipe for "Poori". "Poori" are generally made on special events or festivals. One such occasion is "Ashtmi" where "Poori" along with "Kala chana" and "Sooji Ka Halwa" is made. It is basically deep fried Indian bread made using whole wheat flour. "Poori" and "Jeera Aloo" combination used to be my favourite item in tiffin menu. "Poori" also goes well with "Kaddu"(Pumpkin) and "Aloo Tamatar Ki sabzi". 
My mom makes two types of Poori- Sweet and Salted. I am going to make salted "Ajwain"(Carom) pooris.

Please be careful while deep frying the pooris. The pooris are fried in hot oil. In case you feel the oil is very hot or has started burning, immediately slow down the flame.



List Of Ingredients:

  • Wheat Flour-3 cups
  • Semolina- 2 tsp
  • Salt- 1 tsp
  • Carom seeds- 1 tsp
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Oil-For Frying
  • Water-For Preparing the Dough

Steps To Prepare:


Step1:

Take wheat flour, semolina, salt,carom seeds,oil in a mixing bowl.




 Mix well. Start kneading the dough by gradually adding water to it. The dough should not be very soft or very tight. At the end take some oil in your hands and rub it on the dough. (Before moving to the next step, in the mean time keep the frying utensil in which pooris are to be fried on medium flame so that oil is heated by the time we come to the frying step)



Step2:
Rub some oil in your hands and make small flat balls out of it.
Step3:
Apply some oil on the rolling board.Take one ball at a time and start rolling them on the rolling board. Be gentle with the strokes.
Step4:
In the frying pan, the oil must have heated by now. The poori which you have rolled as seen in the picture above, lift it up gently and leave it in the frying pan. Slightly press it downwards with the sieving spatula. It will start rising. Turn it in other direction. Take the poori out when it has turned golden brown from both sides. Repeat the step with other flat balls.

Hot-Crunchy-Tasty Pooris are ready!!!

I have made Chana Masala and Boondi Ka Raita also, so I am going to eat these pooris with them :)
