Zuì hǎo Poori or the Best Poori recipe is a poori that stays puffed up for a longer time and tastes very crispy and delicious with any side dish.
We are on the final alphabet of the A to Z Indian Pooris and for Z, I had to twist a bit to use the Chinese word zuì hǎo which means The best. The recipe is inspired by Anu's recipe and I totally enjoyed making it.
The pooris stay puffed up and are crispy as it uses Semolina, along with hot oil. I first saw this on Finla's feed where she said she made it from Ria's space. When I checked on Ria, she had done it from Anu. So this poori recipe has traveled quite a distance to finally end the series of A to Z Indian Pooris.
I made Aloo Masala as the side dish and nothing can beat the quintessential aloo masala with poori. This series on AtoZ is something we started this year and had some fantastic collection from my BM friends. Come back tomorrow to find the entire collection.
