  • 1 Slotted Spoon
  • 1 Chopping Board and Knife

Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 Cups Rice Flour
  • Oil for Frying
  • 120 Ml Water to knead the dough

For Masala

  • 1 No Chopped Red Onion
  • 1/2 Cup Freshly Grated Coconut
  • 4 Nos Green Chillies
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Coriander
  • 1 Inch Ginger Chopped
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1 Tsp Jeera

Instructions
 

  • Blend chopped onions , jeera, salt , freshly grated coconut , fresh coriander , ginger and green chillies into a smooth paste . Do not add water to grind .
  • Add flour to the mixing bowl.
  • Transfer the blended paste to the mixing bowl. Mix well .
  • Gradually add water and knead to get a smooth dough.
  • Cover the dough and let it rest for 25 minutes.
  • Heat oil in the frying pan . In meantime lets roll the poori.
  • Make medium size balls from the dough. Cover the dough as it should not get dry.
  • Grease your palms with some oil and flatten the ball evenly using your palm. You can also keep the dough between two sheets of plastic or zip lock bags and then roll gently with a rolling pin or press with a flat bottom cup to get a round poori.
  • The rolled pooris should not be too thick or too thin.
  • Remove the rolled poori and slid them into the hot oil.
  • Then gently press and nudge the poori, in circular motion so that the poori puffs completely.Fry untill both the sides are nicely done
  • Remove the poori and drain them on the paper towel to remove excess oil if any.
  • Serve with sagu, coconut chutney , any kind of dal or curry . I serve it with tomato and curd chutney .
  • Enjoy.......................
