Potato Methi Poori

A twist from the plain poori.Combining Potato-methi gives flavor and taste to this poori.


1 cup - All purpose flour / Maida Or Wheat flour
1 big - Potato, boiled & mashed

1 tbsp - Dry kastoori methi leaves
Salt to taste


1 ) In a mixing bowl, add maida, kastoori methi leaves, boiled potato and salt to taste.
Mix and combine the ingredients well. Knead well to make a dough. If needed sprinkle some water, which most properly will not be necessary.

2 ) Make small key lime size dough balls out of the dough. With a rolling pin, roll out the
dough to make circular shape. Dust some flour, to help roll the dough.

3 ) Add enough oil to a kadai or wok. Heat oil on medium heat. To test if the oil is hot enough
to fry the poori's, take a small dough piece, drop into the hot oil. If the dough fries and comes up immediately, then the oil is ready to fry the pooris. With care, add one rolled out dough at a time and make pooris. Flip and fry on both sides. Poori will fluff up when the oil is at the right temperature. Mostly medium heat will work fine.

4 ) Drain poori out of the oil and transfer to a plate with paper towel.

Serve with chana masala or curry of your choice.
