Poori - Puffed Indian flat bread / Blogging marathon # 27

Today is the second day of blogging marathon.Today I am going to post poori,which is served as a breakfast  during "ear boring ceremonies ".Poori is a versatile dish,where it is served for the guests in so many occasions .When we went to India for ear boring ceremony for Rohith, I remember,that we served these pooris for our guests,along with pongal,idli,samar,chutney. Not only that,when we have special guest at home,immediately this dish shows its face :).I have given the tricks for getting puffed up pooris.
Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#27
 
Ingredients:
1.Wheat flour  - 2 cups
2.Salt        -   1/2 tsp
3.Water - as required

 
Method
* Take a mixing bowl,add flour and salt.Mix it well.Now slowly add water ,to form a stiff yet soft dough.The dough should be non sticky.Because we are not going to dust the dough with flour.Let it rest for atleast 20 minutes.Cover the dough using a clear wrap.
* Divide the dough into equal sized balls.The dough should be divided into small balls.Meanwhile,heat a pan of oil.The oil should be really hot to make the pooris puff.
 
* Roll the dough into medium thicknessed pooris. It should not be thin,then the pooris will not puff up,during frying.Roll the pooris in batches.Fry the first batch,then roll the second batch and fry them.Always cover the pooris,before frying them.As  there are chances for the dough to dry.


* Now slowly slip the pooris in hot oil,one by one.Using a ladle,press the centre of the poori.This will help the poori to puff up.Flip over the poori and fry till it turns golden brown.Drain the excess oil ,by placing them on hand towel.
* Serve with potato curry.

Adore poori and that pairing with sambar is heavenly. I can imagine having a piece of the poori, right after the frying process. Yum and tantalizing to my tastebuds.
