Poori is a very famous Indian dish.It can be made with the dough made using Wheat flour/Maida and deep fried in oil.Potato masala is the perfect combination of Poori. I love Pooris a lot.During my pregnancy the only food, I was craving for was Poori with sambar and chutney.I want it daily for my breakfast.My sister used to make it for me daily.

4.Heat oil in a Deep Frying pan.When the oil is sufficiently hot, drop one poori at a time and fry it gently with a frying spoon.When it puffs up and turns golden brown ,flip it to the other side and fry it to golden brown.Take the poori and Drain out the oil from the poori. Place it on a tissue paper.Similarly fry all the pooris. Adjust the flame accordingly else the pooris may burn out. Don’t fry poori in a very hot oil. Serve it with poori masala or any vegetable curry.
