Poori / Puri

Poori is a popular Indian fried bread which we occasionally make for breakfast at home. As it is fried we try to make it less, but it is still a favorite. Poori is generally served with a side dish like poori masala or chana masala. In Maharashtra, we used to eat it along with Shrikhand or Aamras which is also a delicious combination.
