punjabi poora recipe, puda recipe

there are two ways to make pudas. pudas can be deep fried like pakoras or made like crepes/pancakes/dosas on a flat griddle.

obviously, the latter variation consumes less oil than the deep fried one and is a more healthier option. to make the poodas, you will need a non stick flat griddle or a non stick tava, so that it does not stick to the tava. if you are interested in the deep fried version of pudas then here is its link: Puda Recipe: Deep Fried Variation.

serve the pudas as a snack with a cup of hot tea and if it is raining then it is the best time to have pudas.

RECIPE TIPS

1. while making puda, i suggest to use a non stick flat pan or griddle.
2. when spreading the batter, always keep the griddle on a low flame. this tip is also applicable when cooking dosas. if the griddle is hot, then it becomes difficult to spread the batter as the batter gets cooked at the base.
3. cook the poodas on a medium flame, so that they get cooked evenly.
