Most of the Indians favorite breakfast or dinner could be Poori, Specially for kids! Me and my DH are not the exceptions. We love Poori with potato masala for breakfast, as it calls for deep frying and considering potato has loads of carb, we usually avoid @ dinners.


For Poori:
Whole Wheat flour - 2 cups
Semolina - 1 tbsp
Water - 1/2 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Oil for deep frying

Potato Masala:
Potato chopped - 2 cups
Onion Chopped - 2 cups
Cumin - 1tsp
Garlic - 3 pods
Mustard - 1tsp
Green chillies - 3
Channa dal - 2tbsp
Urad dal - 1tsp
Turmeric - 1tsp
Oil - 2tbsp

Knead the flour, semolina using water to pastry dough consistency. Using semolina will help the poori to puff while frying.
Divide them to equal parts.
Roll out to thick layers using oil, Do not use flour to remove stickiness.

Heat oil in a pan, deep fry the poori on both side (takes 30 secs)

Serve with Potato masala.
Preparation for Potato Masala:
Heat oil, add cumin, chillies, mustard, Channa dal, urad dal, garlic and onions.
Fry the onions till slight brown.
Add the potato's with 1 cup water, allow to cook well. Mash the 50% of the cooked potato.
Add salt and cilantro.

I love any type of fried bread, and this looks really good with the potato masala. I will have to try this!
