I know its simple and everybody knows how to make poori. This is just a sharing of my way to make them! :) When ever I make poori, my hubby's request is "make poori& thengaa chutney"..that is a perfect combination with aloo masalaa or vegetable kurma.

Aata / Wheat flour -1 cup
Water - little less than 1/2cup (approximately)
Salt -1/4teaspoon
Oil - to deep fry

Combine the aata and salt in a bowl, Add water little by little and make a stiff dough.
Knead it for 5 minutes, keep it covered for 10 minutes.
Make small golf ball sized balls.
Roll each ball into a uniform disc by dusting rice flour/ maida/ all purpose flour.
I always make small poori's as there are 2 reasons. One..the usage of oil will be minimal and you don't have to reuse the oil! Two...the small poori's look cute ! :)
Heat canola oil on medium heat. Put the rolled poori and press it gently with the laddle. It will puff up, flip it over after a few seconds. Fry it till it becomes golden in colour, take it out and keep it on a paper towel. Repeat the same and finish off!

Yummy Poori's are ready! Enjoy it with coconut chutney" & (or) aloo masalaa (or) vegetable kurma.
