Everybody loves poori and when you get a good puffed poori, that is some extra satisfaction even when though the taste is the same... I love to have my poori well puffed up and also in good brown colour.For colour or pooris with vegetable visit my section under pooris or recipes A-Z under pooris ..you can see pooris can be made with cilantro juice, mint, carrot, beetroot,spinach and even tomato(will post this soon)...they are all my mom's special..we used to love having it when kids...even now
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Oil for deep frying
Sugar - a pinch( like around 1/4 tsp)
(adding sugar helps to puff up the poori)
Can add a tbsp of fine sooji/semolina when kneading the dough...will also help you to retain the crispness for few mts.Mix flour with salt ,also add a pinch of sugar for puffing up. Add water little by little and make a thick dough...just add a drop of oil and mix well...cover with a wet cloth or plate and keep aside for 10 mts...take a small lime size of dough and roll as pooris...add them in hot oil and deep fry in oil. For good puffing up of pooris, when you add the rolled pooris in oil...with the help of a ladle hold it under the oil..just like immersing them for 4 - 5 seconds... release and you can see them puffing up.
