Methi Poori / Fried Fenugreek Leaves Poori

Hai friends, I love poori masala a lot, It is one of my favorite breakfast...Even though I love to have it daily, since it is deep fried I don’t have this often.

I found this recipe in one of the magazine. They have 30 more recipe for different types of poori given in that book. I have planned to make more recipe from that. I served it with a special potato masala which I will post in my coming post.

I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 3 in the theme Winter Special.. Hope you love it..


Wheat Flour / Atta / Kothumai Mavu-2 cups

Dried Kasuri Methi Leaves – ½ cup ( You could use fresh methi leaves)

Chilli powder-1 tsp

Salt to taste

Oil – 1 tblspn + For deep frying

Water as needed


Take wheat flour, salt, kasuri methi leaves, 1 tblspn oil, chilli powder  in a mixing bowl. Mix everything with your hands.

Add water and form into a stiff and firm dough.Apply some oil over this and let it this rest for 5 min.

Form small balls out of this and roll into small circles.

Heat opil for deep frying and fry this puri on both sides till it puffs up. After you add the puri to hot oil, press it slowly with a slotted spoon to help it puff up.

Drain this in a paper towel..Serve hot with potato curry or your favorite gravy.

Take all your ingrediants
add everything in a bowl
mix well
pour in some water
make a stiff dough
apply some oil in it and let it rest for 5 mins
Divide into equal balls
take one and press it slightly
roll it thinly

a bowl full of goodness

Look how puffy it is


Goes well with my perimma's potato masala
