Poori masala is my favorite breakfast..I can eat it all day, but due to weight concern I have reduced it to once in a month or twice..There is a shop near our house, it is a small café..They have this yummiest poori masala I have ever tasted..We order it from that shop always, if amma don’t like to make breakfast on sundays..Wow I am drooling now, but I couldn't eat it now because I am on GM Diet..Oh I din tell you this right..You can check more about that here..
Now coming back to poori's..I love to try different flavours of poori's whenever I make it at home..You can see methi poori and potato stuffed poori in my blog..This is one of the usual poori that many one of you must have heard..It is made out of spinach, so its partially healthy too..I used pureed spinach to make the poori instead of adding water..so it gives that lovely green colour to the poori and a nice aroma to it..One more thing you should keep in mind is, always make the poori dough stiffer that make the poori to puff up while you drop in oil and will prevent the poori from absorbing lots of oil..
Poori taste great with the masala which you usually have with..I will now post the traditional poori masala which I served with this..I know you will love it for sure..
Wheat Flour / Atta - 300 gms
Palak / Spinach - 3 cup packed
Salt to taste
Oil- 2 tblspn
Water - 1/4 cup to cook spinach
Take water in a sauce pan and bring it to boil. Add spinach and cook it for 5 mins untill it is completely wilted. Allow it to cool down and take it in a blender and make into a fine puree.
Now take flour in a bowl. Add salt and oil to it and mix well.
Add in the ground spinach slowly and mix well..Knead it well so that it forms a stiff dough. Apply few drops of oil over it so it wont dry up. Cover with a bowl and let it rest for 15 mins.
Divide the dough into equal portions and roll it into poori.
Heat oil for deep frying and fry this till it turns golden brown.
Drain and serve with poori masala.
