Knead again for a minute and then divide the dough into small lemon sized balls. Roll each ball into a 4 inch disc. Do not roll the poori too thin.

Heat oil in pan. slip a poori in to the hot oil and press gently and fry the poori till it puffs up. Now turn and fry from another side till golden brown.

Drain the poori on a plate lined with kitchen towel. Make all the poories in the same manner,
