Rave and Maida Poori

Mr. Venkatesh asked me how to make poori, and I replied saying that my Mom had a special recipe and I would post it soon. So, here comes my Mom’s Poori recipe.


  • 2 cups Maida or All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup fine Sooji or Rave
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a bowl, mix together Maida and Rava.
  2. Add salt and mix well.
  3. Make a firm dough using warm water.
  4. Keep the dough covered for almost 3 hours.
  5. Next, take golf sized balls and roll into small circles.
  6. Let the pooris be a bit on the thick side, since the dough is made of Maida you can roll it our as thin as possible, but don’t do it.
  7. Finally, In a pan, heat oil on Medium heat. Drop poori and fry them until they are done on both side.
  8. Serve with Saagu or tomato chutney or hesaru bele thove or any other Palya.
