Maida puri recipe, How to make maida poori, Puri recipe

When we hear the word poori/ puri the first thing that comes to our mind is puri made with atta/ wheat flour. But it is something we always make at home and sometimes we do make bhatura and sometimes give little healthy version of poori with twist of vegetables like peas, aloo, carrot, mooli etc. But the below recipe is a super simple one, made with maida. Yes u heard it right. Maida puri is a simple to make yummy fried Indian bread that stays puffy and soft for longer time. Yes the secret behind it staying for longer is by adding little sooji/ rava to it. You can ask me then what’s the difference between bhatura and maida poori, well the answer is the no addition of curd in maida puri and the rest time of the dough is very less compared to bhatura making life very simple. You can make this poori anytime you get bored with wheat flour puri/ run out if wheat flour at home. The procedure is all same, just a difference in main ingredient makes all the difference. Kindly note that this puri does not work great for tiffin box as it gets little hard so relish it when hot! So lets get to the making!
