Rava Masala Poori / Puri

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4 people

Whole wheat / Chapati flour - 2 cups ( I used Ashirvad multi grain flour)
Rava / Sooji / Cream of wheat - 1/2 cup
Gram / Chickpea flour - 1/2 cup
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Nutmeg - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Water - as needed
Oil - for deep frying

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine wheat flour, rava, gram flour, salt and all the spices along with 2 tsp oil.  Mix thoroughly..
  2. Add water little at a time to make a soft dough.  Knead for 5 to 7 minutes until soft and pliable dough Cover and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a deep pan/ skillet on medium high.
  4. Meanwhile, make small balls out of a golf sized dough.  Roll each ball into circles of medium thickness.  If it is too thin, poori will not puff up and it will become crispy.
  5. Slide the rolled poori in hot oil.  As the poori cooks and slowly comes to surface, gently ladle some hot oil on top of the poori with a slotted spoon.  This will help the poori to puff up.
  6. Flip the poori and cook the other side until golden brown.  Remove and drain on paper towel.
  7. Repeat the process with rest of the dough.
  8. Serve hot with potato masala or dish of your choice.
