i have already shared another variation of poori or i would say a more common way of preparing poori. but in this recipe i have used warm milk to knead the dough in place of water which would yield soft, puffy and crisp poori. to be honest, i got this tip from my father and he got this tip from his friend who apparently owns a restaurant in udupi. certainly i was able to see the difference and the first thing i wanted to share as a video post. i typically enjoy the poori with aloo bhaji, but it tastes awesome with veg sagu, aloo sagu and even with veg kurma.

how to make puffy puri

while there isn’t any cumbersome process with milk poori recipe, yet i would like to share few tips. firstly, the dough for poori should be harder as compared to chapathi dough. otherwise, milk puri would absorb more oil while deep frying. secondly, i have added 1 tbsp of rava to the wheat dough to make it more crisp. also i have added sugar to get the golden or caramelised colour to puri. lastly, once the dough is prepared, start rolling the puri’s immediately. since we have kneaded the dough hard, it would turn dry if not used.

finally, i would request to check my other breakfast recipes collection from my blog. this includes, kulcha, bhatura, akki rotti, jowar roti, aloo paratha, palak paratha, mooli paratha, methi thepla and jolada rotti. in addition do visit my other recipes collection from my blog like,

  • firstly roll the dough tight and not soft like chapati dough.
  • also maintain the  temperature of oil else poori will not puff up.
  • additionally, adding semolina gives a crispy texture to poori.
  • and adding sugar gives a nice golden colour to the puri.
  • finally, poori taste great when prepared with fresh oil.
