Paani Poori

Hai friends today i am coming with one of the most popular snack called Paani poori.This is one of the north famous snack.This is street snack.Now a days even in village also we can see this on road side.Here we dont get like this naaaa.Everybody has their own style some prepare different in water and some prepare different in curry.Every time i used to buy poori's from store and prepare the curry and paani in home.If i dont have curry i prpeare salad that means onions and tomatoes and have it.Without curry also we can have only with that water.We can prepare the paste for paani in home or we get the instant powder that we just mix with water and have.Today i am coming with full procedure.I really enjoy but i did not get the pooris as good.Ok lets go to the recipe.


For poori:

Semolina(suji or Goduma ravva)-3/4 cup
Maida-1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Oil-1/2 tsp
Oil for deep frying-2 cups
Water required to mix the poori.


Chilli powder-1 tsp(Acc to ur taste)
Salt to taste


Coriander-1/2 cup
Mint or Pudina-1/4 cup
Green chillies-3
Ginger small piece
Black salt-1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Chilli powder-1/4 tsp
Tamarind pulp-1/2 cup
Jaggery-1 small cube(3 tsp)
Water-3 to 4 cups
Jeera powder-1 tsp


Take a deep bottomed bowl and add the sooji and salt mix well.
To this add the luke warm water and mix well like the coarse like crumbles now add the maida and mix well.
It forms like a smooth and firm dough and knead it for 5 minutes.(By adding the maida it absorbs all the moister)
Pour 1/2 tsp oil in hands and knead again with the oil hands for 2 minutes.
Keep this dough aside for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes sprinkle some maida on the surface and take some portion of dougha nd roll like chapathi as shown in the pic.
The chapathi should be thick or thin .It should be in middle.
Now take the cookie cutter or any sharp edged cap and cut it like small circles.Do all the dough like this.
Place the oil for deep frying .The oil should be very hot.While frying the poori's press with spoon so that it may puff.
Fry all the poori's on batches.Take out from the oil and place on the paper to absord all the oil.
All poori's may not puff some are like papad that we can use for sev poori or papdi chat.
Keep all the poori's in air tight box use when ever we want.(OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOps miss the pic)

How to prepare the Paani:

First we have to prpeare the paste .To this we have to take the jar and add the coriander,mint,green chillies,ginger and grind to the paste.
Take 4 cups of water in a big bowl to this add the grinded paste,jeera powder,black salt,chat masala,salt,chilli powder,pepper and jaggery soaked in the tamarind pulp.
Mix it well and keep it aside.

For stuffing:

Boil the potatoes in the oven or cooker with skin.
When it gets cooked make it cool and peel of the skin.
Mash the pototoes well to this add the chilli and salt powder mix it again.
To this add the onion pieces mix it well keep it aside.
