Here’s my mom recipe : my favorite pooris. I am using urad dhuli dal paste and kasoori methi which give a special aroama to it.
Servings: 12 pooris
Urad dhuli: 1/2 cup (soaked and paste)
Wheat flour:2 cup
Maida: 1/2 cup
Besan: 1/2 cup
Sooji: 1/2 cup
Ajwain: 1/2 tsp
Salt: to taste
Red chilli powder: 1/2 tsp
Kassori methi: 2 tbsp
Oil: 2 tbsp+ for frying
Saunf or fennel seeds: 1 tsp
Heeng or asafoetida: a pinch
Haldi powder: 1/4 tsp
1.Mix all the ingredients given above. Knead a stiff dough using water. Dough should be smooth but not very tight. Keep it aside for half an hour.
2.Divide the dough into equal portions. Apply little oil over each portion and roll them into circles which are not very thin.
3.Heat oil in a kadai and put a poori in it. It will puff up. Turn it and fry poori from both sides.
4.Serve pooris with achar or allo ki sabji.
