Godhuma Pindi Poorilu

Ingredients:

Wheat Flour 3 cups
Oil 1 tbsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Oil for deep frying

Method of preparation:

In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, oil and salt.
Knead all the ingredients together using little amount of water at a time to form a tight dough without sticking to fingers.
Leave the poori dough covered for 15-30 minutes.

Take golf sized balls out of the dough and flat them with roller into somewhat thick discs.
Heat oil in a wok on medium-high heat until smoking hot.
Place one rolled out poori at a time slowly in hot oil.
Press it lightly with a steel strainer until it puffs and becomes light gold.
Turn on other side and let it turn golden as well.
Serve hot with your favorite curry.

Notes: Make sure thickness of rolled out poori is not too thin or not too thick.

    Poories are always a delight to eat. I made some for Chana masala. Looks delicious, puffed perfectly.
    Have a relaxing long weekend, see you on Monday sis!:))
