Hotel Style Poori / Chola Poori

Maida Poori:(Delhi Style)

Maida Poori. Light Fluffy Pooris. Hotel Style Poori.


All purpose flour 1-2 cups
Soda 1/2 spoon
Sour curd 1 cup(well beaten)
Ghee few spoons
Oil for frying.


In a bowl add flour. Add salt and soda too. Using curd…make a smooth dough. Maybe use ghee in between.

Leave the smooth dough well wrapped in wet cloth. Maybe for at least 7 hours.

Once again run few spoons of ghee over it.

Make equal parts out of them. Knead into small pooris. Always knead them with uniform thickness, it should be thicker than you usually knead for regular pooris or chapathis. Never attempt to use dry flour while kneading. Maybe use ghee or oil if it demands.

Fry them in hot oil. Give a pressure to one side…using spatula. Let the poori bulge well. Leave them over kitchen tissues..while a while, to remove excess oil in case.

This should be served along with some spicy gravy. You can have your choice. Generally chana masala is quite common match for this.

    Hey Malar, all the amma’s in Tamil Nadu make only wheat flour pooris. Don’t you think? You were the one who enlightened me with your super maida maavu poori. I could never forget eating your lunch box back then. Wish you good luck with your work!
