Salt- 1/2 tsp
Dry Methi Leaves/ Kasoori Methi- 1 tbsp
Fried Onion- 1 tbsp
Red Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp ; optional

Oil- for deep frying

Preparation Method:

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, methi leaves,fried onion, salt and ghee.
Using water , knead the flour into a soft dough.
Add enough water to knead the flour well, but make sure the dough does not become sticky.
If it does, add some more flour and knead well.
Keep the dough aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
Make lime–size balls and using a rolling board and rolling pin ,spread /roll each ball into 4 inch rounds like a tortilla.
Use flour occasionally to make sure the dough does not stick to the rolling board.
Heat a pan with enough oil for deep frying.
Add a little salt to the oil to keep it from smoking.
Fry the poori one at a time, holding them under the oil on the first side until they puff.
Turn and fry till light brown.
Remove from pan and lay on paper-towel to lose the excess oil.

Serve hot with Paneer Makhni or Butter Chicken.
