Poori or puri is a favorite among South Indians.Serve it as a breakfast or snack with sugar or curry of your choice.This recipe makes 8 medium size pooris.
Measure 1 cup whole wheat flour or atta flour and place in a mixing bowl
Add semolina,salt,sugar & Greek Yoghurt. Mix them well.Now add some water, little at a time and continue to mix. If the dough is too tight it will not roll well;if its too soft it will absorb more oil
The dough must be just right. It should form one ball like so
Divide the dough to 8 equal portions
Roll it to about 8-10cm In Diameter. Alternatively use a poori press as shown in this photo. Make sure there are no holes in the poori
Make sure your oil is hot. This will make the poori puff up which is exactly what a poori is all about.
Gently add the poori into the hot oil. Fry both sides. Try not to place the fried pooris one on top of the other.
This is how it should look
When it floats on top of the oil - it has cooked
Drain well with a slotted spoon or ladle
Enjoy this with your favorite curry or potato stew. For a snack and for kids serve this with sugar.
