Tomato poori recipe | Thakkali poori, deep-fried poori made using Whole wheat flour, tomato puree, and flavorful Indian spices. Tomato poori recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

Poori is one of my most favorite tiffins and I love this with potato masala. At our home, kids love this with chana masala. So I mostly make poori and chana masala at home. I have posted a spicy Gobi paratha recipe a few years back, by adding tomato puree to the dough. It turned out very yum. A few days back I saw Tomato poori on my Instagram feed.

As I was doing this Navaratri Combo series posts now, I thought I will shoot a video of this Tomato poori and share the recipe in between the combo series. This is a simple no onion no garlic recipe. The tanginess of the tomatoes and the spiciness from the red chili powder enhances the taste of the poori.

Even this tomato poori will be perfect for travel too. Also check out the tips to get perfect puffed-up pooris, in the Notes section.

Notes

  • Adding sooji helps to retain the puffiness of the poori.
  • Use ripe tomatoes for nice red color.
  • Always fry the poori when the oil is very hot, else they won’t puff up.
  • Always knead the dough just before making the pooris. Else it will absorb a lot of oil.
  • Tomato poori tastes yum as it is, you can serve with chana masala or potato masala too.
