Kids Poori: Poori/Puri is a famous South Indian breakfast and it is best complimented with poori masala. Everyone including the kids love it, for the wonderful taste. To make it more exciting for the kids, when we meet up on holidays, we have started using cookie cutter, back home in Chennai.
These little poories in attractive shapes were instantly popular with the kids, that they would want it everytime when we made the traditional South Indian poori. It’s so delightful and funny to see the kids make a great deal out of the shapes that they like, as they munch on their little poories. This is one of those dishes, where we could see their clean plates as they eat up the whole lot without making much of fuss.
1 cup wheat flour
water to knead the puri dough
salt to taste
few drops of oil
1.Take wheat flour in a cup and add salt. Then add water lil’ by lil’ to knead the dough. Make it into a soft and tight dough, so that it easily spreads on the rolling board but shouldn’t be sticking on the board. when you have finished kneading the dough, add few drops of oil and knead for a minute.
2. Keep the dough in a bowl with closed lid or cloth. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
3. Take some dough and role it on the rolling board. Using cookie cutter, make the desired cut outs .
4. Heat oil in a kadai. When oil is hot enough, reduce the flame to medium. Now add the poori cut outs in batch by batch and deep fry them.
5. With the right flame adjustment, you would get nicely puffed up little poories.
6. Serve with tomato sauce/poori masala.
