Poori is a deep fried Indian bread more often made with whole wheat flour. Recipe for pooris/puris differ with regions. Various spices, grated or mashed vegetables or minced greens can be added to prepare a variety of puris. Though this bread is used primarily to scoop up spicy side dishes, the flavour of poori by addition of spices, jaggery or veggies add to the lusciousness of the one dish.
When you are making a side dish for pooris, regard that a gravy side dish is a must since the poori alone is dry to eat only with a dry sabzi and recipes alike. While deciding on the gravy dish, mindfully add a vegetable or carb rich lentil/pulse that adds creamy body to the coulis/gravy. Keeping this creaminess as a base, we can add ingredients like vegetables which we can bite into. They also pair up will with chutneys or pickle but you will also need a raita to make the meal complete. Or when you are including chunky ingredients like paneer or tofu, chop them to smaller pieces such that the poori doesn’t crumble when we are scooping up the gravy.
