Today I have a very simple recipe of plain poori. But generally we fail to give that crispness and softness at the same time and also it gets flat sometimes. We all love to have our pooris perfectly puffed . So I have some simple yet important thumb rules for perfect whole wheat flour pooris every time. Recipe is given below, hope it will be helpful to you.
HOW TO MAKE CRISPY YET SOFT POORIS
Time: 30 mins
2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup warm milk
2 tbsp oil
Warm water to knead dough
Mix oil in flour, then add milk and using sufficient water make dough. After mixing everything knead the dough atleast for 4-5 mins to get nice dough. Dough should be little harder than chapatti dough but smooth .Let it rest covered for 10-15 mins.
Now take small balls of dough using some dry flour roll desired size pooris. It should be little thicker than chapatti. Also take care while rolling, always roll with light hand.
Heat sufficient oil in a wok at medium to high flame, to check whether it's done or not, put small ball of dough in hot oil if it comes immediately on the surface of oil then it's ready to fry pooris.
Put one poori at a time and press it lightly with ladle to puff it perfectly, let it get crisp from one side the flip it to other side and let it cook . Now drain it on a kitchen towel . Similarly fry all the pooris and your crispy puffed pooris are ready to serve with your choice of curry or fries.
Keep an eye on hotness of oil, if you find your pooris are getting darker fast then decrease the flame to maintain temperature of oil.
If you like more crispy pooris then can add 2tbsp of semolina (sooji or rava ) while kneading dough.
This is the simplest poori recipe you can make any time and serve it on any special occasion or for kids tiffin. Kids always love to relish on poori halwa or poori bhaji, so give this special treat to them any time.
Hope this recipe is helpful to those who fail to get perfect pooris, so please try it and pour your valuable comments and suggestions here they meant a lot.
