Poori / Puri is fried flat bread that is popular with all ages!! Most of the Thali meals in restaurants South India have to have Pooris in them! Even though easy to prepare at home, because it is deep fried, I prepare occasionally. On these occasions though, everyone at home usually hit double digits J
Poori goes well with most of the Palyas/Side dishes and also with Amras, Shrikhand etc. So enjoy Pooris with spicy or sweet accompaniment.

2.  Divide the dough equally to 6-8 round balls (about a table tennis ball size).
3.  Roll them into small circular shape not too think nor too thin.
4.  Heat oil for deep frying. Oil should be nice and hot.
