Vegetable oil is used in excess while deep frying poories. A possible way to absorb excess oil is to place cooked pooris on a flat plate covered with a tissue paper or a paper towel. Having such a plate ready is the first step towards making poories at home.
Add 2 cups whole wheat flour (Atta Flour), 2 tsp vegetable oil and 1/2 tsp salt to a large bowl. Thoroughly mix the contents of the bowl with the tips of your fingers. You can add more salt as per your taste.
While mixing the contents of the bowl with one hand, slowly pour 3/4 cup warm water into the bowl. Continue to mix until firm dough is formed.
Divide dough from the previous step into golf-sized balls. Apply a small quantity of vegetable oil on a flat wooden board, which is important to prevent dough from sticking to it. This board will be used for rolling the dough balls into poori shape.
Pour 2 cups vegetable oil in a wok. Place the wok on a lit stove and wait until the vegetable oil starts to simmer. If the oil starts to smoke as it heats up, add only a pinch of salt to the wok.
Carefully place one poori in the heated vegetable oil. Keep the poori dough immersed in oil with a spatula until it puffs. Flip sides and cook until the poori turns slightly golden. Remove the poori and place it on the plate you had prepared in the first step. Cook rest of the poori's in a similar manner.
