Methi Poori

My hubby loves pooris, well lots of people do... But I kinda get bored eating the same thing, so I try some variety always. I tried methi poori the other day, thanks to the suggestion of a dear friend, Harsha. The methi poori was yummy but NOT bitter as some might expect... Give it a try!!!

  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons kasuri (dried) methi [adjust the quantity according to your preference]
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Black pepper powder to taste (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying.


  1. Put oil in kadhai and let it heat.
  2. Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Add water and make a tight dough, just like the dough you make for pooris.
  4. Make a small golf-ball sized ball of dough and roll it out for the poori.
  5. Fry it in hot oil.
  6. Serve hot with sabji or raitha.


  • You can use freshly chopped methi instead of kasoori methi, but that may taste bitter.
  • You can use freshly chopped palak instead of methi.

Happy cooking!!!
