Coriander/kothamalli leaves and mint/pudina leaves Poori
This is one of my mom's favourite recipe... she often makes pooris of different colours with many vegetables... like carrot... spinach .. coriander... beetroot... tomato...
We used to love the colours and will always choose which colours to have next...
Wheat flour - 3 cups
salt and oil for the dough
sugar - 1 tsp
Cilantro - 1/2 bunch
Mint leaves - 1/2 bunch
Oil for deep frying
In a mixer add cilantro and mint leaves. Make a smooth paste with very little water around 1/2 - 1 cup .. if needed u can also strain with a strainer. I always strain and extract juice out of it.
Mix flour with salt and little oil , add sugar for puffing up. Now add the paste and prepare a thick dough for poori. If water is not sufficient, then add some more water to ground mixture and strain and add while preparing dough. Allow it to set for 10 mts. Take small balls and roll as pooris. Heat oil in a frying pan for deep frying ... drop the rolled pooris... press the pooris with the ladle for few seconds( this will help in puffing up)and deep fry till light or dark brown in oil. Turn to cook the other side. The flavor of mint will be too good and kids too enjoy the colors and eat.
