Poori/puri ( boori)
Poori is very common at Indian breakfast, evening tiffins and even thali lunch. Its a tasty dish. Not a very healthy option as they are deep fried. But indulging occasionally is just worth it. Here is the recipe..
wheat flour - 2 cups
maida - 1/2 cup
salt - 1/2 tsp
water for kneading the dough
Sieve flour with salt. In a mixing bowl mix along with water gradually.Knead to a soft dough( not very soft). Make small balls and roll out into puri discs using a rolling pin.Deep fry in hot oil until its golden brown and puffs both sides.Serve hot along with Saagu, kuruma, aloo masala, channa masala etc.
Sugar may be added. This would make the poori to puff up and remain crisp.
