Today my daughter asked me to make puri koora for dinner. Most of them make puris with maida, but my mom told me how to make poori's with wheat flour. Here is the delicious poori/puri recipe using wheat flour. (Note: Wheat flour pooris are more softer.) .
Kids love these pooris.
1 cup of wheat flour
salt to taste
1tsp oil for the batter
2 cups of Oil to deep fry pooris
Warm the 1tsp oil. Mix the oil in the wheat flour(this will make pooris to puff.) .
Add salt and water to the flour and make a soft dough. Keep it aside for 10mts.
Make small lemon sized balls of the dough and roll them into thick round shaped. (Don't roll too thin.)
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel. Once the oil is hot, slide the poori into the hot oil(Be cautious while handling the hot oil). Using the spoon/laddle press it in the center gently along the edges. Pooris will start puff. Turn the poori other side fry till light golden brown. (Don't fry too long, it will turn dark color). Remove it from oil and keep it on tissue paper.
The tasty puffy soft pooris are ready to be served with chole or Potato Bhaji (Bangala Dumpa Upma Koora).
