Sweet Poori, Surul Poori, Pathir Pheni

Surul poori is my mother-in-law  recipe. It is very tasty, crispy and easy to make. It  just  melts in your mouth. The sweet poori can be prepared in two ways. One way is dusting sugar on the poori and the other one is dipping in sugar syrup. If you like it less sweet then you may want to sprinkle the sugar powder instead of dipping in the syrup. Those layers are made with a paste of rice flour & ghee. This is very sweet & once you start eating you can't stop with one:-)  I  used food colour  to give a colourful  look. it is optional , if u don't like this, u can skip this process.


Maida - 1 cup
Baking powder -a pinch
Salt - a pinch
Water - enough to knead the dough
Oil - to deep fry


Rice flour - 4-5 tbsp
Ghee- 4-5 tbsp


Sugar - 1 cup
Water-1/2 cup


Mix maida, salt and baking powder together .Divide flour in to three portions.Dilute the food colour with little bit of water,Sprinkle required water and knead into dough. I used green, yellow,orange food colour to make the dough. 

Making the rice paste:

                                          Mix rice flour and ghee and make a paste.

Making the poori:

                                             Divide the dough into two equal portions. 
                                                          Take one part & roll it.

                                                Do the same procedure to each colour.

Spread the rice flour paste over that & lay the other circle over it & apply the rice flour paste.
 Repeat the same with another circle, when u lay third one, finish the top with the paste.

Start rolling up the dough. Roll it very tight & smooth,
so it will not separate when u r frying it.

                                  Cut the log into 1/4 inch diamond shape pieces. 

                                                   Roll it out as shown below.

Heat oil in a kadai on a medium heat. drop the rolled portions into the hot oil. Fry both sides well & as they are fried you can see that the layers are separating.

Making sugar syrup:

Heat the sugar with adequate water, when its come to boiling, bring it to a string consistency.

Now immerse the fried poori in to the sugar syrup for one minute,
 so it absorbs the sugar syrup very well.

                                                                          Drain it.

                                              SERVE HOT OR COOL AS YOU LIKE IT
