Poori Recipe – With Potato Curry


Recipe Type: Breads / Breakfast
Author: Recipes ‘R’ Simple
Prep time: 5
Cook time: 5
Total time: 10
Serves: 2-3

Ingredients for Poori:

  • 1 cup Wheat flour (Aata)
  • 2 tsp vanaspati(Indian  Vegetable Shortening), ghee or oil
  • salt  to taste about 1/4 tsp
  • 1 – 2 tsp sooji/ rava / semolina – optional
  • water (½-1 cup) this may vary according to th texture and quality of flour.
Method:
  • Combine the flour, (and semolina if using) with the shortening and salt  and mix with hands till the press to make poori with potato shortening is well distributed and you get an even, buttery flour mixture.
  • Next add water  just enough to knead into a nice pliable dough that is moistened but doesn’t stick to you hands. (dryer dough than for chapathi  – this is so the poori does not absorb the oil)
  • Within your palms- mould into balls the size of large limes. Flatten slightly into discs.
  • Heat oil to fry in a medium sized deep wok.
  • Oil the surface of a chapathi press.  Press the discs one at a time with just enough pressure to get a nice round  Poori/Puri. Not too thick. Not too thin (Fry 1 and you will know – the poori should puff up  and be crisp but soft and not flat and hard)
  • If you do not have a chapathi press you can roll each disc out with a rolling pin evenly (do not flour the rolling surface though – you can oil the surface for ease in rolling instead. )
  • Slide each rolled out puri into the wok and allow to fry on medium heat.
  • When it comes to the surface, puffed up and one side is golden, gently turn over and fry the other side pressing gently into the hot oil with a flat slotted spoon/spatula. (This will make the puri puff up further)
  • Remove from oil with the slotted spoon into a colander or large strainer to drain off excess oil.
  • Note: Puri is meant to be fried just before serving time.

  • 3 fenugreek/methi seeds
  • 6 curry leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt(approx)
