To perk up the poori recipe, we will be adding turmeric powder.
For the masala puri, we will also add asafoetida. Additionally, you can toss in some ajwain which will also aid in digestion.
Finally, add chilli powder to the flour. You can add green chilli paste instead of red chilli powder.
Add 1 tbsp of oil. Oil can be swapped with melted ghee. This fat basically helps in making soft masala pooris.
Add salt. You can adjust the number of spices and quantity depending on the flavour you would enjoy.
Gradually add water and combine all the ingredients. We have used approx. 6 tbsp of water.
Knead into a firm stiff dough. It is very important to prepare a stiff dough as that would require less or no use of whole wheat flour will rolling.

Once the masala puris with curds | masala puris for breakfast | deep fried masala puris dough is formed, cover it with a lid or damp muslin cloth and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
To roll the masala puri for frying, after 20 minutes, divide the dough into 20 equal portions.
Apply little oil on the rolling board.
Place a portion of the dough on it and press it lightly.
Roll out a portion into a 75 mm. (3") diameter round. If the dough is sticking a lot, apply a little oil to the rolling board which will help you roll the poori easily. The poori should neither be too thick or too thin.
Similarly, roll out all the portions and spread out on a plate. Do cover them with a damp cloth while you are heating/frying all the poori to prevent them from drying.
To deep-fry masala puri, heat the oil in a deep kadhai and carefully put 3-4 puris to fry at a time.The oil should neither be too hot or too cold. To check if the oil is at the right temperature or no, drop a small portion of dough in the oil. If it comes up quickly, the oil is too hot and this would brown the poori quickly. If it takes a lot of time, the oil is not hot enough and this would make the puri absorb a lot of oil. The trick to get a perfectly fluffy tikhat poori is to add a puri in hot oil and gently press it with the slotted spoon.
Fry 2 -3 masaledar poori at a time till they turn golden brown in colour from both sides.
