Kesar Poori is a sinful delicious deep-fried Indian Flatbread made with Saffron and milk. The entire dough is kneaded with milk along with spices to make a spicy and complete bread on its own.
For the A to Z Indian Pooris, K is Kesar Poori made with Saffron or Kesar. I had a choice of making with Khus Khus but decided to make a simpler one with Kesar. Since we add spices and milk, this makes a delicious poori that can be enjoyed as such. These pooris would surely be a great dish to be enjoyed with rich paneer gravies. Since I had somehow missed out making these pooris ahead, I had to finally make Dal for this.
I love eating pooris by itself and these pooris were good as they had spice and milk for the richness. If you love pooris, this is a fantastic one to make and enjoy!
This was part of the AtoZ series I did on Indian Pooris. I had picked up to do Indian Pooris and each letter of the alphabet has been a wonderful challenge to make and enjoy. I hope you have been enjoying reading these pooris. For the entire collection of A to Z Indian Pooris, check the roundup.

I have used wheat flour for making this poori. I am sure all-purpose flour will taste awesome too.
Instead of using only milk, you can use half water as well.
Kneading with warm saffron soaked milk makes the dough soft and gives a good texture for the pooris.
