Hello Foodie Family,
The poori is one of the popular dish across India, served in every thali. It is best eaten with aam ras, shrikhand, chole and aloo bhaji.
Its easier to stir up pooris instead of rotis. Deep frying is easier than sweltering over a roti to make sure every corner is cooked and not left raw. A poori, just has to be added to hot oil, upturned and it's cooked. This indian bread is very easy to make, very delicious and addictive. On cooking the aroma is totally enchanting. Even the neighbours come to know that pooris are being fried, making them curious to know if it's for a special occasion.
So here I am with another recipe. This time I experimented with an over ripe fruit, a banana. How about some banana pooris? Note the easy ingredients and make it today itself. You can also try the Parsi Bhakra recipe, a similar deep fried biscuit donut
- 2 cups whole wheat flour ( atta not maida )
- 4 tablespoons sugar ( powdered )
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 2 tbsp ghee
- 4-5 Cardamom ( elaichi)
- water for kneading
- Oil for frying
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
- Add the mashed banana, ghee, vanilla extract and mix together.
- Knead well with a little water.
- This will make a firm but sticky dough. Set aside for one hour minimum.
- Deep-fry until golden brown on both sides. See them beautifully fluff up.
- Now remove them from oil and drain on paper towels.
- Enjoy it hot.
