It’s amazing what you can do with a some plain flour, warm water and oil! As a child puri or poori were always a treat to go with Sholay (chickpea dish), a Spicy potato yoghurt or Aloo subjee (Bombay aloo).  It was a treat because it would need a deep fryer which we didn’t always keep on the go. 

Anyway, it’s quite an easy recipe where you mix all the ingredients together with a pinch of salt. Roll out to any size you want, a couple of mm thick and drop into a hot fryer. They will puff up, which is cool! 

The dough, pliable and not dry or too firm. The oil will mean you don’t need to flour the surface or the rolling pin.  
It’s just how I roll…
