singhare ki poori recipe | singhare ke atte ki puri recipe for ekadasi vrat

Singhare ki poori recipe With step by step photos – singhare ke atte ki puri is made during religious fasting days like shivratri fast or Ekadashi fast or Navratri fasting. during fasting days in north India, only certain flours are used. E.g. Singhare ka atta (water chestnut flour), kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour), rajgira ka atta (amaranth flour), sama ke chawal ka atta (barnyard millet flour) and arrowroot flour.

I wonder why these healthy flours and millets are used during fasting days only. They can even be made during regular days. These flours make for an excellent gluten free option as well.

singhare ki poori

You will definitely get to taste a slight flavor of singhara or water chestnut in these pooris but that does not matter much, as these pooris taste as good as regular pooris made from whole wheat flour.

Singhare ki pooris can be made plain just with the water chestnut flour or in combination with mashed potatoes. This recipe uses boiled mashed potatoes. Since mashed potatoes are used, the pooris have to be fried in hot oil. On a lower temperature, the potatoes absorb a lot of oil and the pooris become clogged with oil.

Singhare ka atta is easily available in most super stores in India. I have seen it in reliance stores in India too. Apart from this recipe, you can also consider making Kuttu ka paratha, Sabudana thalipeeth, Rajgira paratha, Kuttu ki poori and Rajgira ki poori for fasting days.

You can Serve these Singhare ki pooris With Aloo tamatar sabzi or Vrat ka kadhi or Arbi masala or khatta meetha kaddu or jeera aloo or Pumpkin sabzi. I served the singhare ki puri with Vrat wale aloo.
