Poori

What’s tastier than deep fried bread to go with some yummy curry? Nothing! Here’s a really simple recipe to make Poori’s, a delicious deep fried bread.

3 cups wheat flour ( I use golden temple brand from my local indian store)
1½ cups of warm water
1 teaspoon saltCanola Oil for deep frying

In a bowl, combine the flour and salt. Spread the flour to the sides of the bowl and make a small well in the center. Pour in the warm water into it and Using your hands mix it gently until it forms a firm dough. Mix well to make sure there are no cracks or crevices and its smooth evenly. Cover the bowl and set aside for 15 minutes.

Shape the dough into a golf ball sized rounds. Using a rolling pin, press these balls into a circle(roughly the size and thickness of a CD)

Fill a frying pan with oil about half its height. Heat the oil on medium-high for about 5 minutes.

Gently immerse the poori dough into the oil and push-down once with slotted spatula and let go. You will notice the poori will balloon up. At this stage turn it over and let fry for another minute.

Remove from oil and let it drain on a paper towel. Make more poori’s and stack ’em up.

My favorite side dishes to serve with pooris are Channa/Chole masala or Aaloo Curry (Potato curry).
