Poori is a very special dish although it is commonly made. It is served at parties,marriages and other functions. The most liked item by every one as a break fast , lunch or dinner. When I was small kid I was very happy when my mom made poori. My mom used to make Kurma curry,Chole, Aloo curry ,Sweet Poori and Dahi poori . It is especially liked by kids.

Wheat flour 2 cups
Water 1 cup
Oil for frying
Salt as needed

1.In a bowl ,mix flour,one teaspoon oil ,salt and water. Knead the dough for 10 minutes. ( If you have food processor add 2 cups of flour ,I teaspoon oil and 1 cup of water and mix for 2 to 3 minutes smooth dough is prepared)

2.Take small balls of dough and flatten them with chapathi stick into 3 inch balls.If if buy poori presser or chapathi maker you can keep the small ball of dough and it becomes a flat circle. Flatten all the balls and keep them aside. I have made the balls and made them uniform by cutting this with a
circular sharp edged bowl.

3. Heat a pan and put oil required for frying and heat in medium flame for about 4 to 5 minutes in a pan. Fry the poori in oil and with the spatula press the whole poori for 2 to 3 second under the oil and take of the spatula . The poori will puff if you press it and this way you need not turn the poori to the other side for frying.

Served with Kurma curry, Chole or aloo curry
