How to make Pooris:

  1. Take a mixing bowl and add flour, carom seeds, kasuri methi, salt & 2 tsp oil. Mix until crumbly
  2. Add water in portions and start kneading. Knead to make a little stiff dough, do not make it too soft. Keep aside for 15 mins
  3. Make small size balls out of the dough. Now grease a ball with a little oil and start rolling with a rolling-pin to make a poori, around 3-4 inches in diameter
  4. Meanwhile heat oil in a deep kadai or pan, once oil is hot drop the poori. It will start coming on the top, gently press it with the help of a slotted spoon so that it puffs up nicely
  5. Once it’s puffed, turn it and fry till golden brown from both the sides. Drain on a kitchen paper towel and similarly do the rest
  6. Your Pooris are ready, serve hot with your favorite curries.
