No family occasion days can be complete without these fluffy pooris.  Pooris - Potato kootu is the all-time beloved combination across Tamilnadu. This food is indelibly associated with the wedding feasts of Tamil Nadu.

How to make his fluffy Poori?


Wheat flour 200 g
All purpose flour or Maida 200 g
Semolina 1 tbsp to be soaked in water
Salt 1/2 Tsp
Sugar 1 Tsp
Groundnut oil or any cooking oil 1 tbsp
Coconut oil 2 Tsps
Hot water 125 ml
Groundnut Oil to deep fry 400-500 ml


Add wheat flour and all-purpose flour in a mixing bowl.
Add sugar and salt.
Dry mix well.
Pour 1 tbsp  Groundnut Oil.
Mix well.
Add hot water little by little and knead to combine all the ingredients to a mass.
Pour 2 tsps of Coconut oil and knead again to get a non-sticky and soft dough.
Cover and rest for half an hour.
Divide the dough into equal portions.
Make balls and place on a dry plate.
We use Poori press for fast work.
Smear the palm with a drop of oil and make perfectly round balls.
Smear a few drops of oil on the surface of the Poori Press.
Place a ball on the center and press gently.
Take off the flatbread and lower into hot oil.
Deep fry the bread into a puffed poori.
Just hold the Poori against the hot pan for one second to drop the excess oil.
Place the Poori on a dry plate.
Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough balls.

Fluffy Pooris are ready to enjoy!
