Aloo ki Poori - lunch/ dinner, school lunch box, snack, vegetarianAloo Ki Poori – Don’t they look drool worthy. These taste just like aloo ki kachori minus the hard work. These are perfect as tea time snack – take my word for it as I am having them right now with my tea and they are really something, for kids lunch box – when you don’t have lots of time on your hands and kids want something good for their tiffins, when you are travelling and want mess free snack – as you do not have to wrap some other vegetable with it.

I was chatting with my mother a few days back  to inquire about what she used to send us in our tiffins when she mentioned these pooris. I can not believe that I have forgotten about these. My kids loved them. Three of us finished off about 16 pooris in no time. I was told that now I am not allowed to forget about these again and they should keep on appearing in their tiffins regularly. YES SIR !!! 😉

How to make Aloo ki Poori

preparation time : 5 minutes
cooking time : 15-20 minutes
makes about 16

Ingredients:
1½ cup whole wheat flour/ atta
3 medium sized boiled potatoes
salt to taste
½tsp red chilli powder
¼tsp garam masala
½tsp saunf/ fennel seeds

oil to fry

Note : you can increase spices according to your preference. This is how my kids liked it.
Don’t cut down on the number of potatoes as that will spoil the taste of the pooris.

To make Aloo ki Poori

Mash the potatoes. There should be no lump left as that will not let the poori puff up. Add all the spices.

Mix thoroughly. Now add the whole wheat flour.

Using as little water as yo can make a tight dough as you would make for regular pooris. Because of potatoes dough will not be very hard. Make around 16 balls and roll the dough. you can make smaller pooris also but for kids tiffin I like this size.

Deep fry till puffed up and golden brown on both sides. For crispier Pooris you can fry them for a little longer to dark brown.
