  • Let it sit covered for 10-15 minutes.

  • Divide dough into small lemon sized balls and roll them using a rolling pan thicker slightly than rotis in a circular shape.

  • If u want smooth pooris then above process is ok or else if u want crispy, Roll it same like chapathi(thinner).

  • Heat oil in a Deep frying pan, Fry pooris till golden brown.
