aloo poori recipe

i like aloo poori very much and usually have it for lunch. i cannot eat heavy foods at the start of my day. but in my hubby’s family everybody can 🙂 at my mom’s place the sunday breakfast would be light food like idli or dosa. on weekends it would be idli and dosa and on week days, mom would make upmapotato poha, sandwiches, porridges – all of which are light. we would have also aloo puri or poori bhaji in maharashtrian style. but it would be for lunch.

this aloo poori recipe is my mil’s treasured recipe. it is one of her best aloo sabzi recipes and everybody in the family loves it.

the main and top most ingredient which subtly flavors the whole dish is ajwain (carom seeds). it brings out the best in this potato curry. this potato curry is served hot hot with hot hot pooris, all puffed up and straight out from the kadai along with some chopped onions and lemon wedges.

the combo of aloo puri with sooji halwa is very popular in north india. usually the aloo poori is made for breakfast but you can have it any time of the day. mostly its made on weekends as it is a heavy meal and you won’t feel like working after having it. you can also check this south indian style poori masala recipe which goes well with pooris and dosa.

  7. open the lid and simmer the aloo sabzi by pressing a few cooked aloo with the spoon on the sides of the cooker.

recipe notes

few tips for making aloo poori recipe:
1. you can have the consistency of the aloo sabzi as per your preference. however avoid making it watery or thin.
2. the spice powders, namely chili powder, garam masala and mango powder can be adjusted per your liking.
3. in the absence of carom seeds, you can add cumin seeds. the curry or sabzi will not have the carom seeds flavor, but still taste good.
4. if you don't have a pressure cooker than after adding the potatoes and water, cover the pan and let the potatoes get cooked. remember to check in between.

2. make small balls of the dough.

3. apply oil to dough ball. the idea of applying oil and not dusting with flour is so that while frying, the oil stays clean and you won’t see dark burnt flour particles inside the oil.

4. roll the dough evenly into circles which are neither too thin nor thick.

5. place the rolled poori in a plate and cover with a clean kitchen towel, so that they don’t dry up.

6. heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai. when the oil is sufficiently hot, then drop a small dough ball into oil. if the dough ball rises steadily and briskly to the top, then the oil is sufficiently hot to fry the pooris. otherwise, wait till the oil becomes hot before frying the pooris. if the dough ball rises slowly or is still at the bottom, then the oil is cold and if it rises too fast, then the oil is very hot.

8. add one poori at a time. it will puff up soon.

9. once the bottom side is golden, then turn over the poori and fry gently pressing down with the frying spoon or slotted spoon in a circular motion. fry the puri till golden brown all over. remove the poori into paper napkins to remove excess oil. fry all pooris this way. if the oil becomes too hot, then lower the temperature by reducing the flame and vice versa.

  9. Hi dassana amit.
    Can I prepare the dough a day before and refrigerate it?
    Will it effect the taste or texture?
    I want to give it as lunch to my husband at work. How shid I keep the pui soft?

    • zeynab, yes you can prepare one day before. some change will be there in taste and texture. store in an air tight container and spread oil all around the dough before keeping in fridge. don’t use the dough for more than 1-2 days as it start becoming black and hard.
