Poori step-by-step recipe with photos.
Poori is unleavened deep-fried puffed bread made with whole wheat flour. Hot puffed pooris served with saagu or potato masala or chola is one indulgent breakfast/brunch. These soft, puffed up bread can also be served with suji halwa and tastes absolutely great.
It is very important to get the dough right while making them. The dough has to be slightly stiffer when compared to chapati dough. Also, you need to knead the dough in lukewarm water and not cold water. If you get the dough right, the pooris will puff away to glory!
To make the poori, make a dough with whole wheat flour and lukewarm water. I let the dough rest for a while. I then roll it into round discs and deep-fry in oil.
