Poori | Puri
Poori is a popular Indian deep fried & puffed bread made from whole wheat flour, salt & water. The perfect Poori is golden in colour & puffed up like a ball. Poori is often served with Potato or vegetable curry. This is very basic recipe that you all might know how to make it, but I think this will be helpful for the beginners.
- Take wheat flour, oil & salt in a mixing bowl.
- Mix well and start kneading dough by adding little water at a time.
- Consistency of dough should not be soft but a little stiff & tight.
- Apply few drops of oil on top & cover it. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
- Knead the dough after resting time for a minute & divide it to a small lemon sized balls.
- Roll them lightly & evenly. Make sure it is not thin.
- Heat oil in a pan.
- To check if the oil is hot enough, drop a small ball of dough in the oil. If it raises immediately, that means oil is hot enough.
- Slip a rolled poori in the hot oil.
- Press gently & fry till poori is puffed up.
- Turn & fry other side till golden brown.
- Drain the poori on kitchen paper towels for excess oil to be absorbed.
- Make all the poories in same manner.
- Serve hot with any of your favourite side dish.
