Hello everyone 
As kids tiffin is a daily tension for fussy eaters moms, I am here with one more easy healthy tiffin snacks for kids. Even we can also keep it with us while traveling as it lasts long on room temperature and a filling snacks too. You can also make it in large batch and give to kids for two three days in tiffin or evening snacks. It tastes best with some spicy tangy pickle but you can have it as per your taste and preference. 
Meethi poori , it is also known as thekua or thokwa in UP and Bihar . It is very well known dish to North Indians and I only added a little healthy twist and eye catching shapes for kids in it. Hope you all will like it and must try it at least once.
Recipe is given below.


Serves: 3-4
Time: 30mins


1 cup whole wheat flour 
1/4 cup gram flour(besan)
1/4 cup Complan or any health drink
1 tbsp mix dry fruits, grinded or chopped finely 
1 1/2 tbsp ghee
1/3 cup sugar
Oil to deep fry
Water to knead


Mix all ingredients together well except water and frying oil. Now using sufficient water knead a soft dough of it little softer than chapati dough. Keep it covered at any warm place overnight.
Now your dough is ready to make pooris. Heat sufficient oil in a deep wok and turn flame to medium high. Take lemon size ball of dough and roll 1/2 cm thick poori and deep fry on medium flame till golden brown on both sides. 
For different shapes, roll a big poori of 1/2 cm thickness then cut designer pooris using cookie cutter and fry as told above. 

Dough may be little sticky, so use dry flour to easily roll. Make sure to roll  pooris little thick to get nicely puffed and soft ones.
You can add any health drink and dry fruits of your choice. You can skip them also if not making for kids.
Keeping it for overnight is a must step if getting it long then can also keep it resting at least for 4-5 hrs. It will result in more soft and fluffy pooris. Don't afraid of getting smelling or spoiled dough as sugar added in it prevent it from getting sour.

Your easy meethi  poori is ready to go in tiffins or accompany you in your journey. Enjoy it hot or cool , tastes good both ways. A dollop of spicy pickle enhances its taste to another level.
It's so easy and generally loved by kids, even my fussy eater loves it. So try it and let me know your suggestions and comments, they meant a lot to me.

Happy cooking....
