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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Method:

  • 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.
The dough
  • 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.
