  • cup Whole wheat flour (I have used multigrain flour)
  • ½ cup Rice flour
  • 1 teaspoon Red Chili Powder ( can be adjusted when making for kids)
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin Seeds
  • ¾ teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Roasted Coriander Seeds crushed coarsely
  • ¼ teaspoon Asafoetida
  • Salt as per taste
  • 2 tablespoon Oil
  • Water for kneading the dough
  • Oil for Deep Frying


  • In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients along with 2 tablespoons of oil. Mix them well.
  • Add little water and start kneading the dough.
  • The dough should be of stiff consistency. Cover with a damp cloth and keep it aside for 25 to 30mins
  • Now, divide the dough into 4 to 5 equal balls.
  • Heat enough oil in a kadhai.
  • Take a ball, lightly grease it and roll it out into a thin disc ( approx 2-3 mm thickness)
  • Prick it all over and cut it with any round cutter depending upon the size of the pooris you prefer
  • Once the oil is hot, deep fry the puris on medium flame until crisp and golden.
  • Drain it on an absorbent paper.
  • Repeat the same for the rest of the dough balls.
  • Cool them and store them in a clean airtight container up to 2 weeks.
  • Enjoy them with a cup of tea at breakfast or tea time.
