Well, it's a tad dangerous but a drop of vinegar to the oil definitely puffs up the poori.

Poori Recipe:

  • Whole wheat flour (atta) (1 cup)
  • Fine semolina (chiroti/rawa/sooji) (1 tbsp)
  • Clarified butter (ghee) (1 tsp)
  • Sugar (1/2 tsp)
  • Water (1/2 cup + 2 tbsp)
  • Carom seeds (ajwain) (1 tsp)
  • Salt as per taste
  • Mix together flour, sooji, sugar, carom seeds, ghee and salt. 
  • Add water little by little and knead into a firm dough.
  • Cover with a muslin cloth and keep aside for 15 mins.
  • Now divide the dough into equal pieces. 
  • Technique in focus #1: Smear the balls lightly with oil to avoid black spots.
  • Roll out a poori that is neither too fat nor too thin.
  • Do not use dry flour while rolling. Heat Fortune VIVO DIACare Oil in a deep kadhai.
  • Technique in focus #2: Make sure the oil is not smoking hot or lukewarm. Heat till 180°C - 190°C.
  • Add one poori and gently press it from one side to ensure that it fluffs up.
  • Flip gently and fry from the other side. Repeat for all other pooris.
  • Your fluffy and crispy pooris are ready to be served with a side dish of your choice.
