Few pointers to keep in mind before starting:
- A perfect recipe for kids or even adults having sweet tooth.
- We have taken whole wheat flour, jaggery and white sesame seeds for the recipe, which in turn add to the health quotient as well.
- It can be carried along for long distance travels too.
- Adding oil to the dough makes the pooris softer.
- Adding semolina makes the pooris crunchier.
- Grate the jaggery and dissolve it completely in hot water before adding it to the dough. There should be no lumps left to avoid breaking of pooris while frying them.
- Wheat flour – 2 cups
- Jaggery – 3/4 cup
- Water – 1/2 cup
- White Sesame seeds – 2 tbsp
- Oil – 2 tbsp + to fry
- Fennel seeds – 1 tbsp
- Semolina – 2 tbsp
- Salt – a pinch
- Boil the water, add grated jaggery to it and dissolve it completely in water. There is no need to cook it. Let it cool down a bit.
- Take all other ingredients except the jaggery water and mix them well.
- Now knead the dough using the lukewarm jaggery water taking little at a time. The dough should neither be too stiff nor too soft.
- Keep the dough to rest for some time and then knead it a bit more before making pooris.
- Make small balls and roll out pooris out of them, which should be thicker than the Indian rotis.
- Finally fry the pooris in hot oil and enjoy them with condiments of your choice or just with a cup of hot tea.
