- Make small balls,dust with wheat flour and roll to make medium thick poori’s/discs,if you are having difficulty in rolling them,then place the ball between 2 greased plastic sheets and then roll gently.
- Heat oil and deep fry the poori’s on medium heat till golden in colour.OR if you want to avoid fried food then can make roti or parathas with this dough.
- Drain on a paper napkin and serve hot.
@Anonymous-I have added everything at step 2 including mashed potato in the flour and make a dough.
Have you added the mashed potato to the dough or stuffed them?? Please clarify
