3 cups semolina (rava)
1 cup plain flour (maida)
1 tsp roasted and powdered cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (kalimirch)
salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
ghee for dough
oil for deep frying
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and make hard dough using warm water .
  2. Let it rest under wet kitchen towel for about 30 mins.
  3. Knead the dough well so that when you make a ball and press it in between your palms it should not have too many cracks . If that happens use little water and knead the dough well again try using as little water as possible .
  4. Make equal sized balls and roll out small pooris but make it thick like paratha .
  5. Alternatively you can roll out a big thick paratha and use a cookie cutter and cut out equal sized pooris .
  6. Don't let them dry out much as they will not puff up.
  7. So as soon as you make you fry it or cover them under moist kitchen towel.
  8. When you are putting them in hot oil the flame should be on high and you press it gently so that poori will puff up ;when it puffs up reduce the flame to medium and flip it and fry them until light pink .
  9. Repeat the same procedure with rest .
