  • 1 Cup Fenugreek Leaves Methi
  • 1 Cup Water Warm water for making Dough
  • 1/2 Tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Red Chili Powder
  • 1 Pinch Asafoetida Hing
  • 1/4 Tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/4 Tsp Mango Powder Amchoor
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt

  •   Instructions

  • Take a bowl, add Makki Flour, Fenugreek Methi leaves, Wheat Flour.
  • Wheat flour helps in keeping the poori hold itself together.
  • Add coriander powder, Red chili powder, Asafoetida, Garam masala, Mango powder and Salt.
  • Asafoetida adds a very good flavor to the poori.
  • Mix it well to make a dough using your hands. Add warm water gradually as required. Do not add all water in one go.
  • We need to make a tight dough for Pooris.
  • Cover the dough with a cloth or a lid for 10 min. to make it soft.
  • After 10 min., pour 2 tsp of oil on dough and Knead it again for 1 minute. This helps in making the dough surface un-sticky.
  • Dough is ready. Grease your palms with oil and take a small portion from dough.
  • Roll it with both hands to give it a shape of Poori as shown.
  • We are not using rolling pin as the Makki flour is too brittle to get rolled.
  • Add enough oil in a pan and heat it on high flame.
  • Pour the Poori in hot oil for frying.
  • Fry on high flame until it turns golden brown from both sides.
  • Take out once it turns golden brown in color.
  • Makki Methi Pooris are ready to serve with any subzi of your choice, Butter, Tea or Sarson ka saag.

  •  Storage and Serving Suggestions

    1. Make fresh just before serving.
    2. We do not recommend refrigerating the poori.
    3. Serve with Desi ghee or butter on top.
