Urad Dal Ki Poori ~ A to Z Indian Pooris

Urad Dal Ki Poori

Sharing is caring!

Urad Dal Ki Poori or Bedmi Poori is a popular puri from the Northern States of India. Stuff the pooris with spiced ground Urad dal for a delicious poori with sides dishes like aloo ki sabzi.

These Urad dal Poori are also called as Bedmi Poori, uses a stuffing prepared by cooking ground urad dal in spices and stuffing in a poori. Some use Moong dal for stuffing as well. Since I have quite a few stuffed Urad dal pooris, I opted to blend the dal along with other spices to make the poori crispy and tasty on its own.

Bedmi Pooris are served for breakfast and popular in Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Haryana. Since I have mixed the masala in the flour, rolling out becomes very easy and you don’t have to worry about the stuffing coming out.

The pooris are cripsy and can be served with just curds and pickle. However, Aloo ki subzi is the best way to enjoy these pooris.

I made these Urad Dal Ki Pooris along with another Mega BM theme and it was unbelievably exhausting and I forgot to click proper pictures as it becomes tiresome end of a marathon cooking.

Taste wise there were so good, so I can’t complain. One good thing was that I planned and made the thali that it helped in both themes. This poori is the last one for this month’s AtoZ Indian Pooris, where we were sharing S, T, U.

Ingredients Needed for making these pooris

Urad dal is the main ingredient for these pooris. Instead of stuffing the dal, you can mix it with flour to make these pooris.

Remember to soak the urad dal for at least 3 to 4 hours and grind it coarsely for you to feel the dal while eating it.

Make the dough stiff so that it doesn’t dunk lot of oil. You can increase the spice levels as per your choice.
