Onion Masala Poori is a deep fried Bread made with all purpose flour stuffed with a spicy onion and spices filling. These Onion Pooris are heavy and a filling bread on its own, and you don’t have to make any side dish for this.
When it was the turn of thinking of a poori with O, I was literally wondering what to make as there are not many choices for this alphabet.
I had only option of making something with onions and I thought I could search the internet for ideas.
It led me to this recipe and I decided to make it for myself. Both Moong dal Poori and Onion Masala Pooris were made for Sunday Breakfast and I was full when I sat down for my breakfast.
My Sunday meals were these pooris for both breakfast and lunch. I felt I could’ve reduced the spice a bit in these onion masala pooris. Otherwise these tasted great.
These pooris are more like Luchis stuffed with onion masala. With this the alphabets planned for this month ends.

Ingredients Used in making Onion Masala Poori
We make the pooris with All Purpose flour or Maida stuffed with onion cooked in a masala.
The masala is quite heavy as it uses whole fennel, onion seeds, tej along with spice powders.
If I plan to make these pooris again, I would surely reduce the spice levels used in this recipe and most importantly would use crushed fennel seeds instead of whole ones.
As with all stuffed pooris, we got to be really careful with stuffing as the filling has a chance of leaking out of the poori.
The pooris are heavy, so you got to be making sure you balance this dish.
If you are particular to serve a side dish, then a simple moong dal would be an apt side dish or best would just plain Dahi.
I found the pooris very good on its own. So on the days you want to just make a bread, you can make this for a filling meal.
