Maharashtrian Masala Poori/Masala Puri

Masala Puri is the traditional Marati dish. It is served as a snack item and also travel or picnic food. My cousin's wife Priya Buran who hails from Maharashtra taught us this recipe. It is very simple dish.

Ingredients:

Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Salt - to taste
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Ajwain/Carom Seeds - 1 tsp
Til/Sesame Seeds - 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder - 1 tsp
Water - to make dough

Procedure:

Mix all the above ingredients well. Add water as per requirement and mix it well to make poori dough. 
Normally puri dough should be a little stiff and soft. We should not knead it as we do it for roti or chapati. If we knead it puris absorbs oil very much. 
Make the dough into 15 or more small equal portions of lemon sized balls.
Roll them into small pooris using rolling pin. Instead of dry flour use little oil to coat the puris  while rolling them.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan till the smokes come up. Fry each puri in the oil till it turns into golden color. Use slotted ladle to flip it fry for a while. Remove it from oil and drain them on the kitchen paper. 
Serve Masala Puri/Maharashtrian Masala Poori with sauce or we can have as it is also.
