Mixed flour poori

Poori / Puri is everybody’s favorite tiffin and very popular in South India. The preparation of mixed flour poori is exactly the same as normal wheat poori. The only difference is I have used 4 types of flours instead of just wheat flour and added veggies and few greens to the flours. It contains wheat, rice, jowar(sorghum millet) and besan. You can mix and match any of these flours –> oats flour, soy flour, ragi flour (finger millet flour), pearl millet flour(sadda pindi) and psyllium husk too.   This poori goes well with any grain curries like chana or black bean curry or bombay curry or it even goes well with just dal and subji(any vegetale curry).

I don’t think any one who doesn’t like poori. It is well known for it’s softness and puffiness. When the kids are home, I usually make different pooris like plain poori, masala poori, Buttermilk poori (majjiga poori), jowar flour poori, dal poori, stuffed poori, bhatura etc.

This poori is very simple to make and it needs no rolling. You can just use a tortilla press or poori press to make thin pooris and then fry them in oil.

So without any further cunctation, let’s jump into the recipe!
