Puffy Poori

Well, its all about poori today as i had it for breakfast and could not get over it even in the afternoon. Probably I'm thinking of having poori again later today for dinner with some other side dish, might be with palak paneer.

There is not much trick in making a puffy poori at your home. You follow simple steps and you will end up having each and every poori to be puffy and soft too. The pooris i tried today becomes puffier as soon as i drop them in hot oil. I just have to watch them without even pressing the top of the pooris with a spatula or a slotted spoon.

2 cup of wheat flour
salt to taste
3 tsp cooking oil
water as needed
oil for deep frying

How to make fluffy poori:

1. In a bowl, take a cup of wheat flour, salt and sprink 3 tsp of oil.

2. Mix together all the ingredients well.

3. Add water gradually and knead it to a soft dough.

4. You can knead it for 3-4 minutes and tuck it.

5. Cover it with a damp cloth for 10-15 minutes.

6. Meanwhile, heat a kadai with 1/4 of cooking oil on high flame.

7. After 15 minutes, make small round shaped dough out of the kneaded dough.

8. Flatten each of the small dough into circle using a rolling pin.

Tip: The poori should not be too thick or too thin.

9. Once the oil is heated well, keep the flame on medium flame. Test the oil temperature by dropping a little bit of dough in it. If it pops up immediately to the surface of the oil, then it's the right temperature to fry the pooris.

10. Carefully place the poori in hot oil. You will see it starts to puff out.

Tip: If the poori does not become puffy by itself, you can press the top of the poori using a slotted spoon so that it starts to become puffy.

11. Let it cook for 40-50 secs. Then flip on the other side and cook until it turns light brown.

12. Using a slotted spoon, remove the poori from the oil. Pat the cooked pooris with a paper towel to remove excess oil.

13. Serve the poori with aloo sago, dal makhanichanna masala or any other side dishes of your choice.
