A poori recipe made using semolina/rave/sooji as a main ingredient. My mother-in-law always used to make poori using semolina only, she never used to make poori using wheat flour or any other flour. So very often I make Poori using semolina. We can use any type of semolina like the one we use for making upma or fine quality semolina …any type. We just have to knead the dough much before and allow it to soak for one hour or so, to get crispy and soft pooris. Any kind of curry, vegetable sagu, gojju etc goes well with this poori but we like it most with authentic kaayi chutney…. you need to prepare to know the yummy taste of this combo. Though it is very simple I have explained it with step by step pics.

     Ingredients :

  • Semolina – 2 cups
  • salt – 1/8 tsp
  • water to knead the dough
  • Wheat flour or rice flour – for dusting
  • Oil – to deep fry



  • Mix both semolina and salt well and knead (you need to knead it really well) a soft dough using enough water (you can use warm water as well)

  • Keep it covered for at least an hour (the more it soaks the better it turns out)

  • Pinch a portion of the dough, roll into small circular disc while dusting with the flour and deep fry in the hot oil

  • Serve with any kind of accompaniment of your choice
