All Purpose Pooris

Cuisine: Indian
Courses: Breads, Snacks
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

3 cups 187g / 6.6ozWheat flour
1 tablespoon 15mlGhee
1 tablespoon 15mlCurds
  Salt to taste
  Warm water for kneading
  Ghee to deep fry

Recipe Instructions

Sieve salt and flour together.  Add ghee and curds and mix well.  Add warm water little by little to knead dough. Make a soft pliable dough. Keep covered with a moist cloth for 10 minutes. Make small apricot sized balls. Roll into thick puries (4"diam. or as desired) some at a time.

Deep fry in hot ghee. Allow to puff up, flip and fry other side till light golden. Drain and serve hot and puffed. As name suggests, serve with any accompaniment. Curds or curries or mango pulp(aam ras) or pickles or vegetables. To pack for travelling, cool, pile, lightly compress with hand and pack in foil. Accompany with pickles.


Sprinkle a few seeds of sesame, ajwain or cumin over puris and press very lightly before puffing. This will give a festive look to the puries. * To make mildly spiced puries, add 1/2 tsp. pepper powder to dough while sieving.
