Servings 6 number


  • 1 cup Wheat flour

  • Mix everything together and make a medium stiff dough.Add few tsp of water if needed.Cover and rest the dough for 10 minutes.
  • Now make small balls from the dough and dust with flour and roll to make medium thick pooris.
  • Heat oil in a deep pan and gently slide the poori in the hot oil. Reduce the flame to medium low. Splash the hot oil from the sides using the slotted spoon on top of the poori .This helps in puffing up poori nicely.
  • Turn over when puffed up and fry the poori till golden brown . Drain on a kitchen towel . Serve hot or cold with pickle,ketchup or just as such with a cup of tea.


  1. You may added little crushed kasoori methi too .
  2. Similarly you can make palak poori , beetroot poori , methi puri etc .
  3. Don't make the dough gooey / loose . Else it will absorb oil .
  4. Don't roll poori too thin or thick .It should be uniform.Don't allow the dough to sit for a long time
  5. Similarly u can make tomato chapathi too if you want to cut oil .
