Servings: 8 People
- 1 cup refined flour (मैदा)
- 1 cup wheat flour (गेहूं का आटा)
- 1/2 tablespoon salt to taste (नमक स्वाद अनुसार)
- 2 tablespoon refined oil (रिफाइंड तेल)
- water (पानी) as per requirement
- oil (तेल) for Deep Fry
How to Make Poori
- Mix the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the 2 tbsp oil, then add sufficient water to make semi-tough dough
- Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes until smooth.
- Place in an oiled bowl and cover with oiled clear film. Leave for 30 minutes.
- Place the dough onto the floured surface. Divide into 12 equal pieces. Keeping the rest of the dough covered, roll one piece into a 5 " round.
- Repeat with the remaining dough.
- Stack the pooris, layered between clean film to keep them moist.
- Pour the oil in a big deep frying pan. Heat the oil to 180° Celsius/350° Fahrenheit.
- Now lift one Poori and gently slide them through the sides of the pan into the oil (be careful not to dip your fingers); it will sink but will then return to the surface and begin to sizzle.
- Gently press the Poori into the oil. It will puff up. Turn the Poori over after a few seconds and allow it to cook for a further 20-30 seconds.
- Remove the Poori from the pan and pat dry with kitchen paper.
- Serve warm.
