Green Chiily Poori

Pooris are fried dish and every one and all age group love to have them. I just tried this pootis with Green Chilly. It can be prepared for breakfast or as evening snack. It is good for kids party since it is green colour.
I have used green chilly, coriander leaves, ginger and some spices for this green chilly pooris.
It is easy, quick and as I always say Happy Tummy.

Jeera : 1/2 Tea spoon

Method :

1. Take a bowl and put wheat flour , salt and one spoon of oil. Mix it well and keep it aside.
2. Wash green chilly, coriander leaves and remove the outer layer of the ginger and wash it again.
3. Cut ginger and put it in a mixi jar.
4. Now grind green chilly, ginger, corander leaves, jeera and one or two pepper pods. (Use a mixi jar and add little water while grinding. (very little water).
5. Remove the ground mixture and add it to the flour bowl. Mix it slowly. Add a spoon of ghee/oil  and prepare dough. (Thicker than chapati dough).
6. Divide the dough into small ball size.  Roll all these ball size dough into circle shape.
7. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Add oil and heat.
8. Once it is ready fry rolled spicy pooris on both sides.

9. Put it on a kitchen tissue when you remove poori from hot pan. (extra oil absorbed by kitchen towlel.

11. You can also cut these pooris in to very small. (Use any water bottle top).
12. Small pooris can be packed to school in kids lunch box.
