Recipe type: Sweet
Cuisine: Indian
  • For Poori
  • All- purpose- flour / Maida - 1 cup
  • Rava/ Sooji - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - pinch
  • Oil - 2 tbsp + to grease the baking pan + to grease the rolling board
  • Luke warm Water - ¼ cup
For Milk Sauce
  • Evaporated Milk - 1 can
  • Condensed milk - 1 tbsp + ½ tbsp
  • Sugar - 3 tbsp (Adjust avcroding to your taste)
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Saffron - few
  • Cardamom powder - ⅛ tsp
  • Almond flakes - to garnish
  1. In a wide bowl combine Maida, rava, salt, baking powder and mix well. Add 1 tbsp of oil and make crumbs out of the flour. Slowly add water little by little till you get a pliable poori like dough. Add 1 tbsp of oil and knead the dough well. Cover with a damp cloth and let it sit for at least 1 hour
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit and place aluminum foil/ parchment paper on the baking tray and grease it will little oil (As we have already greased the rolling board with oil shouldn't take much oil for greasing)
  3. Grease the rolling surface with little oil and roll the dough. I used a small cup and cut into circle.
  4. Place it the baking tray and if the top surface is dry brush little oil or use cooking spray. Bake it for 7-10 minutes
  5. In a wide pan on medium heat, add evaporated milk, saffron, cardamom powder and salt; cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Add condensed milk and sugar, cook for 5-7 minutes; switch off
  7. Add the cooked puri to the milk sauce and let it sit for atleast 1 hour. Serve it in room Temperature or chilled with garnishes nuts
Milk can be used instead of evaporated milk. In medium heat whole milk can be reduced to ½. Add cardamom powder, saffron, condensed milk, sugar and salt for paal
Poori can be deep fried instead of baking.
Pista, walnut, pecan etc. can be used for extra flavoring
Over baking may result in crackers, watch out the oven after 7minutes
