I had blogged about Badam Poori almost 3 years back. My daughter Sneha came here on Wednesday night for fall break. When I asked her want she wanted to eat, she gave a list of items; and one of them was Badam Poori. She loves it. And it has become my favorite as well. So, this time I took pictures at every step and so here comes the most forgiving recipe for Badam Poori. It is quick and easy and yummy. Give it a try, you will love it.
Ingredients for the dough:
1. 2 cups Maida (All purpose flour)
2. pinch of salt(adding salt brings the flavor)
3. 6 tsp oil( this is for mixing with the flour)
4. 1/2 tsp Badam food color
Ingredients for the Syrup:
1. 3 cups sugar
2. Water just so that the sugar dissolves
3. 1/2 tsp food color.
4. Cardamom powder
1. Heat the 6 tsp oil in a pan.
2. When its is hot, pour this on the flour.
3. Add salt, and the food color.
4. Mix the dough, just like chapathi dough
5. Make small round balls, roll this into a circle and fold into triangular shape.
6. In a pan, heat a large amount of oil and fry these on medium heat.
7. In another vessel, bring the sugar to a boil, add food color to this as well. When the syrup becomes thick, turn off the gas, add cardamom.
8. Now, add the fried pooris in this syrup in batches, let them sit there for a minute or two until they absorb the syrup. Turn them over. I keep them in the syrup until the next batch is ready to be dipped.
9. Put them in another tray, garnish with dessicated coconut, and any other chopped dried fruits you have.
10. I didn’t have Almonds or Cashews, so just managed with coconut..
Serve when its hot or even cold.
