POORI RECIPE

When i posted the recipe of POORI MASALA | POORI KIZHANGU, few readers were asking to post the recipe of how to make poori too. Though i make it twice a month, but never had a chance to click the making of Poori as either it would  be on weekends or on a weekday morning breakfast. Finally i made poori for kids snack , after they come from school, generally they eat meals as they normally take some tiffin like idli, paratha, chapathi or bread for lunch. When i made this around 3 pm suddenly i thought i would click poori so that it will be useful for readers too. So in a hurry i clicked and posting the recipe now.
check out my

Scroll down to note down the tips as how to make poori in advance if you have guests coming to home.

Poori recipe

  Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 15 Mins |Serves: 8 pooris

     Whole wheat flour| atta  1 cup
      Salt   to taste
      Sugar  1/4 tsp
      Sooji | rava  1 tsp
      Water  to knead the dough
      Oil  for deep frying
     

Method with step wise pictures:

  • In a wide bowl add the whole wheat flour, salt, sugar,sooji (if adding) and slowly add water to this and make this into a stiff dough. Ensure that it should not have cracks.
  • Do not make the dough very tight else while rolling it will not come smooth. Do not make it too soft else it will absorb oil too.
  • Divide this into equal sized small balls.
  • Heat the oil for deep frying.
  • Dip one end of the dough ball into the oil and start rolling the pooris.
  • Dusting in flour makes the oil spoil soon. You end up getting lot of residue.
  • Do not roll the pooris too thin of too thick. Roll into medium thick.
  • When the oil is hot, carefully drop this into the oil and deep fry on both sides.
  • Using a jolted ladle take out the puffed poori draining the excess oil.
  • Always ensure that the oil is very hot. else pooris will not puff.
  • If the pooris while rolling has any hole in it it will not puff.

Notes for making pooris for guests
Generally i won’t opt for making pooris when i have guests coming to my house for lunch or dinner. I always make Chapathis as i can make in advance and keep in a casserole. If i start make making pooris, i can not spend time with the guests and finally they also end up coming in the kitchen to help me out to roll the pooris. But i learnt this tip from a friend which i tried twice and it worked out very well.

  • Grease a wide plate with oil.
  • Roll the pooris as mentioned above . Place them on the greased plate . while placing do not keep it one above the other. they should not be over lapped.
  • Put a cling wrap on this and keep it in the refrigerator . this can be made 1- 2 hrs in advance.
  • Just when all are ready to eat, heat the oil and start frying the pooris.
  • You get fluffy soft pooris.

The oil should be very hot while putting the first poori, may be later after 2-3 you can bring it to medium hot, adjust accordingly. If too smoky,simmer it. If not too hot, pooris will not puff.Pooris will get fried in 30to 45 seconds if oil is hot.

I also avoid making puris for the parties just for the same reason which you have mentioned :-). Your idea is very nice but, I couldn’t get it completely. You are saying that it should not overlap each other. In that case do you keep lot of trays? if yes, then how do you stack it without touching each other.

It is tough to keep lot of trays in fridge, atleast you can roll 2-3 trays and keep it separately in each rack say 15 to 20 pooris and roll so that initially few u can start frying atleast.

Pooris are a favourite at home..looks so tempting…
I have seen that if you knead or roll the poori dough in advance, they absorb lot of oil..so I always make when required for us at home
But during parties, I do fry the Pooris immediately she I knead the dough, that will be the last dish I make for that day..so when serving it will be warm, not puffy and super hot..but no option , when you have to make around 100 Pooris..

Hi. Since 2 years, this is the method I always used. It never failed. But , today the poories fluffed up but came out like panipuri ( pappadum) very crisp. I used just 1 tsp of rava. Could you tell me where the fault is? Is it the atta or something else? Kindly give a tip. Thank you.

Hi,i feel the dough may be too stiff. That's why it has come out like that.Generally pani poori we make the dough bit stiff to make it crisp. Also did you fry for a longer time.
