What is poori or puri?

Poori or Puri is puffed Indian bread which is made using whole wheat flour or maida and fried in oil. The basic recipe is always made with whole wheat flour, salt and water. A bit of oil or ghee can be added to the whole wheat dough optionally. The dough is not leavened or fermented.

Small balls are pinched from the dough, rolled evenly to a disc later to be deep fried in hot oil. While frying the poori puffs up nicely and this is the benchmark of a well made poori. The puffing up of the poori helps in giving it a soft texture.

While frying the poori should not break otherwise it will absorb some more oil.

How to make rava poori or puri recipe?

Rava Poori | Puri Recipe | Fluffy and Delicious| with step by step photos and video. The recipe shared here uses powdered rava instead of maida or wheat flour. You can use either roasted or unroasted rava. Firstly, powder the rava and then knead it to a dough. Moreover, do keep in mind rava absorbs a lot of moisture, so be careful in adding water. Further, knead it to a soft and loose dough. Then small balls are pinched from the dough, which are rolled evenly to a disc and later to be deep fried in hot oil.

Further, I would like to highlight the south Indian Special dishes from our breakfast recipes category. Hope you would enjoy them.
