So enjoy the recipe....( once in a while)
Ingredients :Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Soy Flour - 1/2 cup(you can try this with just wheat flour also)
Semolina / Sooji / Rava - 1 tbsp heaped
CornFlour - 1 tbsp (optional, i added for multi flour inclusion in diet)
Salt - 1 tsp
Spinach boiled with very little water - 1 cup (use as little water like a tbsp or 2 while boiling spinach and grind it to a paste without adding water)
Oil - 1 to 2 tsp
1.Take a pan and boil 4 cups of raw spinach with tbsp or 2 of water and once it's wilted , cool it and grind to a fine paste in a blender.You can add green chillies or garlic along with Spinach but I dont want any spicyness or flavour in my poori.
2.Take the flour, sooji, salt in a bowl , add the ground spinach and mix well , don't add any water but if you need some water to make a stiff dough like poori dough add a little.
3.Smear oil on top of dough and mix again to incorporate oil well and make a big ball and place it in a bowl coated with oil and top the dough with a smear of oil and cover and let it rest for 10 min before making poori, resting dough is a must.
4.Heat oil in a kadal and make small roundels of ball and press it using oil to prevent sticking to surface.
I used poori presser but you regular rolling pin will do too.
5.Put poori in medium hot oil and use a spoon to gently press on all surface on top of poori to puff up,once puffed flip it and cook on other side for a min and remove poori and drain it of the excess oil.
6.Serve with potato masala a traditional south indian combo or halwa a traditional north indian combo or just use jaggrey like me if you are lazy enough to make halwa
