Poori (Indian fried Flat bread) is a popular Indian break fast food item. Poori can be served with korma, chana masala, dal, potato based curries etc. Poori is enjoyed at all meal times by all age groups equally. Poori is an easy to prepare breakfast item. There are a lot of variants to poori like paani poori, bhatura etc..

The crispinnes and the golden colour of poori makes it more attractive. Its prepared from wheat flour (Atta / Sooji). The dough is prepared using the wheat flour and its divided into small rolls and then flattened and fried in vegetable oil or ghee.

Poori recipe

  1. In a large bowl, take the flour (Atta) and add required lukewarm water, salt and 1 teaspoon of oil in and knead it until it becomes soft and smooth dough.
  2. Make small lemon sized balls out of the dough.
  3. Grease a hot iron plate and cook with or without oil.
  4. Roll the balls into round shape.
  5. Deep fry in oil until it becomes golden yellow.
  6. Drain it into a kitchen tissue and serve hot with Chana Masala, Vegetable masala curry, etc.


  • If you don’t need a puffed poori, make a puncture on the rolled poori before frying so that the steam escapes as it cooks. But personally I loves puffed pooris.
