Poori...yummy breakfast.......

For poori/Puri:
  1. Kneed the dough by mixing flour+water+salt+oil. The Dough consistency should be little hard
  2. Wait for 15min and separate the dough in to small portions.
  3. Roll them out in to thin circle sheets.
  4. Heat the oil required for deep fry in a pan and fry the rolled out dough under medium flame.
  5. poori are ready to serve.

Note worthy:
For smooth and soft poories always fry them under medium flame.
For crispy poories fry under medium to high flame, and if u prefer still crispy poories add little corn flour while kneeding dough.

For Besin curry:
  1. Take a thick bottom pan and heat 2ts of oil.
  2. Add cumin + mustard seeds and allow them to splutter.
  3. Add onions + green Chiles + turmeric +red chili and saute them for about 2min.

  6. Add water to your required consistency.
  7. Boil for about 2min under medium flame.
