This is basically a poori made from mixed flours, but jowar flour is predominant. It is nice & crisp on the outside with a subtle onion flavor coming through & the occasional nutty crunch from the sesame seeds.
This is a much loved dish by my family & quite addictive too. The only problem being that you cannot, however hard you try , can't stop at ONE !
Anyone game for this challenge ? Lemme know.....
ALL IS WELL ......Take care.


Jowar flour ( Sorghum Flour ) - 2 & 1/2 cups
Rice flour - 1 cup
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Besan flour - 1/2 cup
Roasted gram ( chutney dal ) - 1/2 cup , finely powdered
Oil - 6 tsps
Green chilly paste - 5 tsps
Sesame seeds - 3 tbsps
Coriander - 3 tbsps , chopped
Onion - 5 medium sized, grated
Curds - 2 cups , approx.


Mix all the flours. Add to it all the other ingredients & make a tight dough with the required amount of curds.
Pinch a small portion ( enough to make a poori ), & pat it on a greased plastic paper like the size of poori & deep fry till brown spots appear on the poori.
Drain out the oil & take it on to a absorbent paper.
Serve hot with any chutney or tomato sauce.


Pressing the poori between 2 plastic sheets is quicker for me .
