My generous aunt has graciously shared her recipe here, so here goes, white flour poori that will never fail you, and will always be the crowning jewel on your breakfast table.
White Flour Poori
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tbsp ghee
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp milk powder
salted lukewarm water as required
Oil for deep frying
1. In a bowl, place the flour, milk powder, baking powder and ghee. Add the salted water gradually and knead until dough is formed. Rest the dough for 10 minutes.
2. Form small balls, the size of pingpong balls. Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into a disc of about 1 cm thickness.
3. Ensure that oil is very hot ( but not smokey) before frying each disc of poori. Fry until both sides turned golden brown. If the oil is at right temperature, the pooris should puffed up during frying.
4. Serve warm with curry of your choice.
