Poori recipe, Puri recipe, Poori kilangu


  • Wheat flour – 3 cups
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Salt – 1/2 spoon(or to taste)
  • Oil – As required to deep fry the poori


  1. Take wheat flour in a mixing bowl. Add salt and 2 tspns of oil to the flour. Then add water and start kneading. Do this till it turns into little harder dough. But Don’t make very harder dough. Once you prepared the dough, start making poori immediately. This prevents the poori from retaining more oil when it is deep fried.
  2. Make small balls of the dough and roll it into flat and round shaped poori sheets. This poori sheets should be little thick and the thickness should be uniform too. Apply flour if the dough sticks while rolling. Now this sheets are ready to deep fry.
