Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
1 cup Wheat Flour

Oil for deep frying

Salt to taste

Warm water as required

4 ripe tomatoes

1 large onion

3 green chilli

1 ginger root

2 garlic cloves

1 Red Chilli

1 tsp mustard seeds

1/2 tsp Red Chilli Pwd

1/4 tsp Turmeric Pwd

2 tsp Oil

Salt to taste



  • Put the wheat flour in a large bowl, make a well in the center of the flour and add salt.
  • Add little water at a time and start to mix to prepare the dough. Instead of water, we can add yogurt to make soft and chewy pooris. Knead the dough until it is medium-soft. Add 1 tsp oil and knead again for few minutes. Cover the dough with damp cloth and keep aside for 15 mins.
  • Now divide the dough into golf-sized portions and roll these portions into balls between your hands till they become soft and without any cracks. Using rolling pin, roll each ball into a 5" circle.
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan on a medium flame. Deep fry the pooris one at a time, pressing gently over both sides with a slotted spoon. This will help the pooris to puff up. Fry until it turns golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and serve hot.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds and dry red chilli. Add onion, green chillies and garlic clove, saute till onion turns translucent. Add red chilli pwd and turmeric pwd, saute for a minute. Add tomato pieces and ginger.
  • Cover and cook till all masalas are mixed completely and tomatoes are tender. Add salt to taste. Remove from heat and garnish with cilantro.
