2 Cups Whole-wheat flour
1/8 teaspoon Salt
3 Cups Oil to fry

1 Cup Water

In a large bowl add flour, salt and mix them well together.
Slowly add water and make dough. Mix ingredients intermittently as you are adding water.
Knead dough to a smooth consistency.
Make about 20 small balls.
Roll each ball into a small round flat puri.
Brush oil to the dough balls to avoid sticking when rolling.

Fry Poories:
Heat oil in a frying pan – preferably half round, shaped like a wok – over high heat for 2/3 minutes
or till very hot. Drop a pinch of dough in the hot oil to see if it is ready. It is ready if the pinch of dough immediately floats to the top.

Add one rolled poorie at a time.

Once it is puffed from one side, flip it to the other side and continue frying for 2/3 seconds.
Purie should be light brown from both sides, and then it is ready.

Serve warm poories with warm potato bhaaji (veggie).
Otional: Squeeze 1/4 piece of lemon over Potato veggie before eating.
Makes good weekend brunch.
